Abstract and Keywords

This article surveys East Asian new religions through a discussion of specific new religious movements (NRMs) in China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam. Without diminishing the uniqueness of each culture, these countries share a common cultural heritage from China which makes their attitudes toward new religions different from those of the West. However, like their counterparts in the West, East Asian NRMs embody a bewildering variety of ideals and opposing tendencies.

Keywords: new religious movements, China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam
