Buddhism, popular: Popular Buddhism as defined in True Stories About a Holy Monk refers to the overall structure, development and history of Buddhism. It is therefore different from Buddhist studies and the Buddha-dharma. To give a metaphor using a car, the overall appearance of the car can be likened to popular Buddhism, books and magazines which discuss various aspects of cars can be likened to Buddhist studies, and the functioning of the car itself to get from point A to point B can be likened to the Buddha-dharma.
