  • Editor's Introduction
    • Abstract: In the outskirts of Tokyo, a vast semicircular structure hosts the headquarters of Risshō-Kōsei-Kai, a Japanese new religious movement that was founded in 1938 by Nikkyō Niwano (1906–1999) and Myōkō Naganuma (1889–1957). In Japan, the late-nineteenth and the earlier part of the twentieth centuries witnessed the emergence of a variety of new religious movements, from alternative Shinto organizations such as Omotokyo, syncretistic organizations such as Tenrikyō, and neo-Buddhist groups such as Reiyūkai. This last movement, in particular, proved to be very successful in the difficult years that followed the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake and the following economic depression—as a lay organization, it was not affiliated ...

  • Contexts of Reception: The Lotus Sūtra in Nineteenth-Century Europe
           and What They Overlooked
    • Abstract: That is, no teaching, practice, or behavior has only a single meaning; its meaning is determined by the context in which it is viewed.How was the Lotus Sūtra, the Saddharma Puṇḍarīka Sūtra in Sanskrit, initially received in the West' How did that new context condition the responses to it' What might the ways in which Europeans initially received it teach us about how some Westerners may still respond to it today'The Śākyamuni Buddha of the Lotus Sūtra proclaims its preeminence throughout, as here in the first English translation in 1884: "This is the last Sûtra proclaimed in the world, the most eminent of all my Sûtras, which I have always kept and never divulged. Now I am going to make it known; listen all" (Kern ... Read More

  • Beyond Pluralism and Inclusivism: Multiple Religious Validity and the
           Lotus Sūtra
    • Abstract: In this article, I expand upon Schubert Ogden's contribution to the previous set of conference papers, found in A Buddhist Kaleidoscope: Essays on the Lotus Sutra, edited by Gene Reeves. In the following, then, I summarize Ogden's paper, including my own interpretation and understanding of his argument. Then, in order to tease out the ramifications of his chapter, I develop a possible interpretation he suggested for The Lotus Sūtra (but did not actualize), basically taking up where he left off. I end with some conclusions of my own, returning to my own Christian experience and asking what can be learned from a deep encounter with The Lotus Sūtra.Before I begin, however, I would like to open by locating myself in my ...

  • Ways of Being Religious in the Lotus Sūtra: Themes for Interreligious
           Reflection and Dialogue: Honoring Gene Reeves (1933-2019), with Deep
           Gratitude
    • Abstract: The Lotus Sūtra contains a rich treasury of teachings and stories that have won people's hearts through the ages, rightly regarded as the most influential Buddhist scriptural text in East Asia throughout its history. It has motivated followers and devotees toward various forms of religious and devotional practice and has also inspired thinkers from later eras to elaborate and delve further on the deeper layers of the view of ultimate reality conveyed in the sutra, coming from mainstream Mahāyāna and deriving from the world of enlightenment of the Buddha. As such, it presents itself as a fertile ground for further exploration and inquiry from comparative philosophical, theological, and interreligious ... Read More

  • Transformation or Rediscovery' Soteriological and Cosmological Themes
           in the Lotus Sutra and the Philokalic Tradition
    • Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to offer a response to the teaching of the Lotus Sutra from a Christian perspective—or more specifically, from the perspective of a Christian theologian who is grounded in the Roman Catholic tradition, but has been shaped—both academically and on a more personal, spiritual level—by the great legacy of the Christian East and, in particular, the Greek Fathers. In this paper, I will focus on the theme of the Buddha nature in the Lotus Sutra and explore how Buddhahood's cosmological understanding as the groundless ground of reality echoes early Christian reflection on the cosmic role of the Logos as the pivot of the divine plan for the universe. To develop this conversation, I will first ... Read More

  • A Muslim's Reflections on Saddharamapundariksutra—The Lotus Sutra
    • Abstract: I first learned about the Saddharamapundariksutra—The Lotus Sutra in my proseminar course on Buddhism at the Department of Religion, Temple University, with Professor Charles Wei-Hsun Fu from the book by William Theodore de Bary, The Buddhist Tradition: In India, China and Japan.1 The second time was on my visit to Yuantong Temple, Kunming, China, where in the temple park I saw a woman reading a text. Through my local Chinese student, I asked the lady what was she reading; she replied: The Lotus Sutra. I asked her: for what purpose' She replied that it helped her get through her daily life chores.My journey of studying about Buddhism began in 1979 during my master's degree in Islamic Studies in the library of the ...

  • The Lotus Sutra and Christian Wisdom: Mutual Illumination in
           Interreligious Dialogue
    • Abstract: Traditional Catholic writers identified three stages on the spiritual path: via purgativa (purgative way), via illuminativa (illuminative way), and via unitiva (unitive way).1 The first stage consists in turning away from sin, going through a painful process of purgation, purification, and penance; this requires abandoning sinful patterns of thinking and acting. The second stage involves illumination, learning to see God, other persons, and the entire world in a new way, free from the distortions of sinful agendas. The final stage moves toward full union with God, with other persons, and with all creation. The stages are not necessarily successive; they can be seen as a simultaneous and overlapping aspects of the ... Read More

  • Clouds Speaking and Words Singing: Patterns of Revelation and Piety in the
           Lotus Sutra and in the Hebrew Bible
    • Abstract: Upon discovering the Lotus Sutra, the reader familiar with biblical patterns of revelation and piety, especially as displayed in the Pentateuch, cannot but be struck: both in its structure and in the metaphors used, the narrative of the Lotus Sutra mirrors in many ways that of biblical text. It does so when it comes to encountering the divine and when it comes to how to relate to it. First, the form of narration, often poetic, uses word repetitions, specific expressions as literary patterns, and teaches through stories and parables. Second, a number of motives in the Lotus Sutra, be it at the level of "revelation"—a mountain shaking and a voice in the clouds, the divine seen in blue, light coming from the forehead ... Read More

  • Paths to Interreligious Dialogue: The Teaching of the Lotus Sutra and the
           Spirituality of Focolare Movement
    • Abstract: Inspired by the teachings of the Lotus Sutra, Nikkyo Niwano founded the lay Buddhist organization Rissho Kosei-kai (RK) in 1938 in Tokyo. It was five years later that Chiara Lubich established the Focolare Movement (FM), a lay movement in the Catholic church, in 1943 in Trento. Since the jubilee year of 1975, youth members of both RK and FM have gathered for exchange programs, and in spite of the differences between the traditions, through testimonies of faith, joint activities, and other forms of dialogue, a mutual feeling of oneness has resounded between participants. Their embrace of one another while maintaining their identities as Buddhists and Christians is based on their open religious orientation toward ... Read More

  • Modern Lotus Sutra–Based Approaches to Religious Diversity and the
           Interreligious Thought of Niwano Nikkyō
    • Abstract: Theologian Perry Schmidt-Leukel's designation of the prospects for Buddhist religious pluralism as a "difficult road" probably shocks many Buddhists and friends or admirers of Buddhism throughout the world.1 Generally speaking, Buddhism is commonly thought of as one of the more open and ecumenical of the world's religions, a "religion of peace." However, Schmidt-Leukel observes that Theravada Buddhism's doctrinal positions—only the Buddhist path leads to true liberation; there cannot be multiple buddhas or sanghas in a world at any one time—lead to an exclusivist position.2 Varieties of Mahāyāna, on the other hand, are hampered by a "deep-seated inclination of inclusivist hierarchical ranking," that forestalls the ...

  • Innovating Mahāyāna Buddhism and Christianity Through
           Contemplation: A Comparative Study
    • Abstract: The title correlates quite different religions that do not permit direct comparisons because their teachings, practices, soteriology, metaphysics, as well as their geographical and historical settings are considerably diverse. However, when two comparands somehow share a common "third" aspect, the tertium comparationis, a methodologically adequate comparison becomes possible via such a mode of mediation.2 In order to fulfill the task stated in the title, this study focuses on two tertia comparationis. First, I shall examine whether "communication" is a key feature characterizing the meditations or contemplations treated here. Here, I shall apply "communication" as a common heuristic in order to elucidate the mutual ... Read More

  • Dwelling at the Heart of Holiness: Locating the Buddha-Land and the Place
           of God
    • Abstract: "How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts" begins Psalm 84 in the Authorized King James Version of the Bible.1 Today, the translation probably most often used is "How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts."2 "Amiable" nowadays more usually describes a person and is associated with friendliness or friendship, which is a noble form of love; men have laid down their lives in its name. There are many kinds of love, and the Greeks had a word for them, as C. S. Lewis for one has amply demonstrated.3 The importance of love has always been recognized in the Christian tradition. Vilma Seelaus OCD, writing about humankind's presence in the universe, quotes a sixty-two-year-old businessman who discovered ... Read More

  • "Have This Mind in You": A Study of the Relationship between Pauline
           Christology and the Tathāgatagarbha Tradition of Mahayana Buddhism
    • Abstract: This essay is an exercise in what John Cobb has called "Passing over" and "Coming back" (cf. Cobb 1982), exploring the possibilities for creative interplay between the two traditions of Christianity and Buddhism. The first phase of "passing over" refers to the attempt to understand another tradition on its own terms. The second phase of "coming back" applies these insights to one's own tradition, being aware of divergences where they occur, but also being open to the possibilities for enrichment by a fresh evaluation of previous understandings.The Tathāgatagarbha1 (Buddha-nature) doctrine is one of the most important keys to understanding Mahayana and particularly East Asian Buddhism. It provides a soteriological ... Read More

  • Philosophy beyond Mechanization: Critiquing Economic Liberalism through
           Nishitani Keiji's Critique of Modernity
    • Abstract: It has been thirty years since Fukuyama's well-known article "The End of History" was published in the magazine The National Interest. The article was a prophetical formulation of human history, which claimed that all ideological alternatives of human governance have been negated in the movements of the Weltgeist, with liberal democracy and free market capitalism representing the final stage of our sociocultural evolution. The significance of Fukuyama's revelation is that it marks what Marxist scholar David Harvey once said, "we are all neo-liberals now,"1 as the common sense position in today's hegemonic formation. However, the 2009 market crash and the ever-present threat of global climate change have brought ... Read More

  • The Historical Interface between Buddhism and Christianity in Cambodia,
           with Special Attention to the Christian and Missionary Alliance,
           1923–1970
    • Abstract: I do not attempt to be exhaustive in this exploration of the relationship between Buddhism and Christianity in Cambodian history. I do occasionally refer here to Cambodian-Americans and other persons of Cambodian descent living outside of Cambodia, as well, because the boundary between Asian experience and Asian–American experience has proven to be a blurry one. Khatharya Um, a professor of ethnic studies at the University of California at Berkeley, argues that the "hyphen in 'Asian-American' … connects as much as it separates."1 Cambodians living in the diaspora offer prime evidence in support of Um's point, as many of their experiences have defied this boundary through a variety of means. Some families travel ... Read More

  • Nostra Aetate and Encountering Buddhism
    • Abstract: As has already been noted, the Church has had an ambiguous, if not ambivalent or even contentious, relationship with non-Christian traditions throughout its history. Thus, the shift in the modern period in recognizing religious liberty and the indwelling presence of God in every person constitutes a real movement. "Conscience," Vatican II taught, "is man's most secret core, and his sanctuary. There he is alone with God whose voice echoes in his depths."1 Further, it declared, "All men are bound to seek the truth … and to embrace it and hold on to it as they know it."2 The term, "as they know it," can scarcely be overplayed. The Council fathers recognized that the development of conscience and the experience of God ... Read More

  • What Lies Within: Uncovering the Holy Spirit with the Aid of Buddhist
           Philosophy
    • Abstract: Growing up in a Pentecostal church,1 I regularly heard that the Holy Spirit2 persistently and unceasingly blows like the wind through all of creation.3 At the same time, our church believed in demonic activity—something that was characterized as "dark" and "evil." Indeed, demon possession and oppression were regular topics of Sunday morning sermons and subsequent discussions around the dinner table. For me, however, the tension between these disparate claims—that the Spirit dwells in all things at all times and that the Spirit's absence leads to demonic activity—raised questions.Current Pentecostal pneumatological scholarship focuses on the same predicament: where is the Spirit and how is the Spirit conceptualized' ...

    • Abstract: Nobody sees anybody truly but all through the flaws of their own egos. That is the way we all see … each other in life. Vanity, fear, desire, competition—all such distortions within our own egos—condition our vision of those in relation to us. Add to those distortions to our own egos the corresponding distortions in the egos of others, and you see how cloudy the glass must become through which we look at each other. That's how it is in all living relationships except when there is that rare case of two people who love intensely enough to burn through all those layers of opacity and see each other's naked hearts.The work of interreligious scholarship is objective, examining religious history, society, and religious ...

  • A Review of Gospel of Thomas and Itivuttaka from formal Perspective
    • Abstract: In Christianity and Buddhism, Jesus and Buddha are the figures who cannot be omitted nor disregarded. In both religions, what have been foci of the attention from their posterity were the life and words of each figure. We can get access to the written documents that are known to the so-called recordings of the sayings of Jesus and Buddha, though letting the issue of authenticity aside.This essay briefly looks over the Gospel of Thomas (GT) and the Itivuttaka based on the form. With respect to the forms, the composition, the way of the development that was used to convey the sayings of both figures, and the descriptive devices to raise the delivery effect are looked over.

However, thanks to the increase of communications and exchanges, the two civilizations came into contact and began to learn from each other. Against such a background, Tang Yin's Chinese Madonna from the collection of the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago was produced, a physical evidence demonstrating cultural exchanges between China and the West. The distinctive feature of this painting is that it is not only a copy of Western paintings, but also a recreation incorporating local religious beliefs, conceptions, painting skills ... Read More

    • Abstract: Though lacking historical association or contact, the apse of San Vitale in Ravenna, completed in the years 547, and the Binyang Central Cave in Longmen, completed in 523, are strikingly similar in their structures and iconographic programs. These two sixth-century religiopolitical constructions of the Byzantine Empire and the Northern Wei Dynasty represent, in three-dimensional space, comparable scenes of imperial couples with their retinues proceeding to worship their Deities, God the Son on the one hand and Buddha Śākyamuni on the other. This essay discusses and compares how these two unrelated religious and political cultures made use of religious imagery to promote imperial authority. They deployed different ... Read More

  • Is Nonviolence and Pacifism in Christian and Buddhist Ethics Obligatory or
           Supererogatory'
    • Abstract: When one examines the teachings of both Buddhism and Christianity, one can clearly see that the concepts of nonviolence and pacifism are core values and principles, which are celebrated traditions in both religions. Both the teachings of Jesus and the teachings of Buddha incorporate and promote teachings of peace, nonviolence, nonresistance and doing no harm. Even outside of the direct teachings from these leaders, one can see that other religious texts and doctrines within Buddhism and Christianity also point toward resisting violence, opposing retaliation, and the avoidance of war. These are common bonds that both religions share. Yet, as we look at these religions on a global scale, it can be seen that the vast ... Read More

  • "Empathy on Trial: Is Empathy Inherently Biased'"
    • Abstract: In a series of recent articles, Yale psychologist Paul Bloom makes a case against empathy when it comes to ethical deliberation and action.1 His definition of empathy involves "putting yourself in other people's shoes, feeling what you think they are feeling."2 Emotional empathy, claims Bloom, has a dark side because it pushes us, at best, to burnout and exhaustion and, at worst, to parochialism and racism.3 Instead of relying on emotion-ridden empathy, Bloom proposes a rationally based alternative, a utilitarian cost–benefit approach of cognitive empathy (a skill of understanding the thoughts and feelings of others). Given that major world religions speak of the importance of empathy and compassion for moral ... Read More

  • Calling for a Buddhist Theology of Dementia
    • Abstract: Ever since becoming a caregiver for a relative with Alzheimer's, the extent to which traditional theological discourses assume autonomy and cognitive competence has unsettled me. Most theology and religious practices assume a self capable of understanding, reasoning, deciding, remembering, keeping attention, and responding. Prayer, study, reflection, confessing, repenting, meditating, serving, devotion, ritual participation, adhering to precepts, and so forth all require intellectual abilities and yet Alzheimer's and other types of dementia destroy these abilities. As David Keck summarizes, "(T)he phenomena of Alzheimer's render the self-conscious subject as the ground of theological and religious life highly ... Read More

    • Abstract: This paper brings together in an introductory and preliminary fashion the insights of critical race theory (CRT) and internal family systems (IFS) from a multiracial perspective in order to reconsider intrapersonal and interpersonal relations in a multiracial and multireligious world. I will suggest that CRT deepens the Self's capacities to embrace Self and others in ways resonant with contemplative streams of both Buddhism and Christianity. I present CRT and IFS separately first, in very brief discussions, before attempting a synthesis broadly described as a spirituality of compassion.CRT emerged in the 1980s within legal studies but has since developed as an interdisciplinary theoretical frame for considering ...

For instance, Francis Clooney's Hindu God Christian God (2001), Divine Mother Blessed Mother (2003), or Beyond Compare: St. Francis de Sales and Sri Vedanta Desika on Loving Surrender to God (2008) set out an ambitious road map for an intellectual exchange between two vastly different religious traditions.

In this he ranks alongside Thich Nhat Hanh and Joanna Macy, who are frequently quoted in this work. Here he focuses a Buddhist lens on what he discerns to be not just a climate crisis, but a full-blown ecological emergency whose outcome could be the destruction of human and all other life. This may seem alarmist, but Loy marshals empirical data from a wide range of ecologists and climate scientists as evidence of the damage done by decades of ruthless exploitation of ... Read More

  • Thomas Merton's Encounter with Buddhism and Beyond: His Interreligious
           Dialogue, Inter-Monastic Exchanges, and their Legacy by Jaechan Anselmo
           Park (review)
    • Abstract: The Parliament of the World's Religions held in Chicago in 1893 marked the dawn of a new era for interreligious dialogue. The kind of dialogue that this event initiated can be characterized as having been theological or intellectual, as it sought to uncover between the many religions and denominations represented similarities and differences on the level of ideas and beliefs. Since that time interreligious dialogue has expanded to foster more experiential and hands-on avenues of exchange. Arguably the most important single person in paving the way to these newer kinds of dialogue was Thomas Merton (1915–1968), the Cistercian monk, author, poet, mystic, seeker, and activist, who was based at Gethsemani Abbey, a ...

  • Zen Wisdom for Christians by Christopher Collingwood (review)
    • Abstract: In Zen Wisdom for Christians, a non-academic book, Collingwood suggests that with Zen, Christian faith "comes alive in hitherto unexpected ways" (p. 32). His premise is that Zen can lead Christians toward the rediscovery of their deep spirituality. This notion is complemented by the ideas that both traditions present real convergences, can learn from one another, and meet in the ineffable ground of existence. Organizationally, the book is divided into three parts, each containing two chapters, juxtaposing comparable patterns of spiritual progress along the Christian and Zen paths. Collingwood starts with a historical introductory chapter where we are reminded of the early relationship between Christianity and Zen ... Read More

Harold Talbott's autobiography, thus entitled, chronicles the many people who rendered the author's existence a life worth living, indeed a precious human life—in the words of Buddhist teachings, to which the author devoted the largest part of his life. Sadly, Harold Talbott passed away shortly after the publication of this volume. His book may therefore serve as a commemoration of the author's remarkable life, of his contribution to American Buddhism as well as a celebration of the early era of Buddhism's rapid globalization in the twentieth century.In his modesty, the author does not devote many lines to ...
