After the fall of the Qing empire, amid nationalist and socialist upheaval, Buddhist monks in the Mongolian frontiers of the Soviet Union and Republican China faced a chaotic and increasingly uncertain world. In this book, Matthew W. King tells the story of one Mongolian monk’s efforts to defend Buddhist monasticism in revolutionary times, revealing an unexplored landscape of countermodern Buddhisms beyond old imperial formations and the newly invented national subject. Ocean of Milk, Ocean of Blood takes up the perspective of the polymath Zava Damdin (1867–1937): a historian, mystic, logician, and pilgrim whose life and works straddled the Qing and its socialist aftermath, between the monastery and the party scientific academy. Drawing on contacts with figures as diverse as the Dalai Lama, mystic monks in China, European scholars inventing the field of Buddhist studies, and a member of the Bakhtin Circle, Zava Damdin labored for thirty years to protect Buddhist tradition against what he called the “bloody tides” of science, social mobility, and socialist party antagonism. Through a rich reading of his works, King reveals that modernity in Asia was not always shaped by epochal contact with Europe and that new models of Buddhist life, neither imperial nor national, unfolded in the post-Qing ruins. The first book to explore countermodern Buddhist monastic thought and practice along the Inner Asian frontiers during these tumultuous years, Ocean of Milk, Ocean of Blood illuminates previously unknown religious and intellectual legacies of the Qing and offers an unparalleled view of Buddhist life in the revolutionary period.

"Eurasia's multiethnic empires began to crumble in the early twentieth century. In the ruins of the Qing, Russian, Austro-Hungarian, and Ottoman empires, hundreds of ethnic groups sought to secure their newly found sovereignty and to participate in the global economy. They did so most regularly by adopting the representative politics of nationalism and by seeking to join the world system of nation-states. Ocean of Milk, Ocean of Blood tells a new transnational story about historiography, Buddhism, community, and sovereignty through the first-person narrative of a remarkable monk working at the Tibetan-Mongolian frontiers of Russia and China, the polymath Zawa Damdin (1867-1937): a historian, mystic, logician, and pilgrim whose life and works uniquely straddled the Qing and its socialist aftermath, the monastery and the scientific academy, and regional monastic networks and traditions. Matthew King shows the centrality of Buddhism in revolutionary projects to modernize Inner Asia, especially through Euro-Russian discourses of international civil society. Zawa Damdin and his milieu used new concepts such as "Asia," "Mongolia," and even "Buddhism" (a newly minted world religion) to strategically reinvent their classical traditions. Braiding European impulses and imperatives with a Buddhism made to travel, Ocean of Milk, Ocean of Blood presents a deeply personal history of Buddhism in Asia, one that connects the necessary nodes of the collapse of the Qing, the mass purge of monastics in 1937, and the global diaspora of Mongolian and Tibetan refugees in the wake of state violence"--
