  • Editors' Introduction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: There are as many paths of interreligious dialogue as there are individuals who walk them, but not all ways are equally constructive—or even respectful. Many interreligious engagements struggle to navigate between two tensions. On the one hand, it is important to present the spiritual experiences of the members of another religion as real and valid, and not incomplete, partial, or inferior. On the other hand, however, it is tempting to try to fit those experiences into hermeneutic categories that ultimately are alien to them, arranging them according to a hierarchical model that practitioners of these traditions would most likely view as fundamentally patronizing. Rather than helping increase interreligious ... Read More

  • The Journey of The Mind: Zen Meditation and Contemplative Prayer in the
           Korean Buddhist and Franciscan Traditions; with Special Reference to
           "Secrets on Cultivating the Mind" (修心訣 수심결, su shim gyol) by
           Pojo Chinul (知訥, 1158–1210) and "The Journey of the Mind into God"
           (itinerarium mentis in deum) by Bonaventure of Bagnoregio (1217–1274)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: One of the earliest encounters between the Western Franciscan and Eastern Buddhist traditions occurred when the Flemish Franciscan friar William of Rubrück (ca. 1215–1270) traveled into the heartlands of Asia on a mission to the Mongolian court.2 Although it was an intrepid journey, it is doubtful that there was any great meeting of minds. Eventually spending six months in the Mongolian capital, William reported meetings with Nestorian Christians and gave accounts of Mongolian-Tibetan forms of Buddhism. After a single audience with the Khan, William wrote in his travel diary: "If I had had the power of working miracles, like Moses, he might have humbled himself."3 Instead, the Khan gave him food and drink and sent ...

  • The Lord's Prayer in the Light of Shin-Buddhist-Christian Comparative
           Considerations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Christianity knows many different forms and types of prayer. There is a whole variety of ritualized prayer, individual or collective, sung or spoken, with or without prayer beads, and there is free prayer, in understandable words or in uttering unintelligible sounds, either loud or silent. There is petitionary prayer, intercession, thanksgiving, adoration, and praise, but also lamentation, confession of sins, repentance, and praying for forgiveness. There is the repetition of mantra-like words and phrases in litanies, the contemplation of images (material or mental), the contemplation without any object, and the so-called unceasing prayer. Not all of these forms and types of prayer are equally widespread among ... Read More

  • Consolation without Previous Cause in Ignatius's Spiritual Exercises and
           Zen Satori: A Comparative Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article compares the Ignatian concept of consolation without previous cause with the Zen Buddhist concept of satori. The aim is to underscore a unique but not commonly recognized characteristic of Ignatian contemplation and promote interreligious understanding. The Ignatian prayer methods, though primarily kataphatic in their approach, share common features with apophatic spirituality and Zen meditation, even though Zen does not make any reference to God. I argue that the Ignatian consolation without previous cause exemplifies the apophatic spirituality in the Christian tradition precisely because it is a direct experience of God as opposed to knowledge gained through conceptual analysis, reason, scriptures ...

  • Ascent to the Immaterial' Cosmology, Contemplation and the Self

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This essay sets out to explore the distinctions that are often drawn between the internal and the external in the understanding of the human person and the relationship between the human and the cosmos, with particular reference to the writings of the early Christian desert monk Evagrios of Pontus (ca. 345–399) and Theravāda thought as expressed in the Dīgha Nikāya. It will discuss the implications for the contemplative or meditative life and, further, the effect on the sense of the self and its value. In the texts to be considered, the identification of the current human condition as being the result of a "fall" may be discovered. Paying close attention to the vision, method, and outcome of a process of ... Read More

  • Dhammapada: A Sacred Path toward Liberation from Harm Cycles

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Dhammapada is the first sacred text I read in its entirety. At age sixteen, in a bookstore in Madison, Wisconsin, I encountered Eknath Easwaran's translation and was transformed by the clarity and depth of these beloved verses from Gautama Buddha. A year later, in 1995, as a seventeen-year-old self-identified bhikku, I left home and wandered the American West.In Malibu, I was given a stray Black Lab mix puppy and named him Dharma. Together, we hitchhiked the length of California and eventually back to my native Wisconsin soil. Looking back, naming that puppy Dharma may seem irreverent or, even, sacrilegious. But when I returned home, my mom said she liked it better than the name I had given our Cocker Spaniel … ... Read More

  • The Nirvana Controversy: A Comparison of the Pelagian Controversy and
           Buddhist Views of Liberation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The content of the Pelagian Controversy is well known. Pelagius (active between 390 and 418 ce), a monk from the British Isles1 scandalized the Christian world when he declared that human beings had in fact not been irrevocably affected by the sin of Adam. According to Pelagius, we humans could achieve salvation by our own free will. Pelagius's position was opposed by none other than Saint Augustine (354–430 ce), who refuted the Briton by arguing that the fall had contaminated our nature and we needed the grace of God to achieve salvation. Augustine's position triumphed, and his ideas have remained part of Christian doctrine. Pelagius, by contrast, was declared a heretic at the First Council of Ephesus in 431 ce ... Read More

  • Bright Guardians of the Way and the World: Penthos and Hiri-Ottappa

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: One of the first fruits of renunciant-contemplative practice is an ever-clearer recognition of the countless ways one still keeps oneself apart from the aim of one's striving—theosis for the Christian or the cessation of tṛṣṇā in nirvāṇa for the practitioner of the Buddhadharma. Among the Desert Elders, the name for this recognition was penthos (πένθος), or compunction, and it was frequently associated with "the gift of tears" (dona lacrimarum). In the earliest Buddhist sources, hiri, or personal shame, and ottappa, fear of public wrongdoing, function similarly, and they are more often than not discussed as a conjoined pair (hiri-ottappa), attesting to a keen conscience that is both inwardly and outwardly oriented ...

      Abstract: This article aims to conduct a comparative scrutiny of the theme of apocalypse, as manifested in the Pāli canon of Buddhism, Jewish literature, and early Christian apocalyptic literature, encompassing the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Epistles of James and Jude, and the Gospels. The intention of this article is to ascertain areas of concurrence between the evolution of the two concepts of apocalypse and to propose that their genesis may be entrenched in analogous historical, cultural, and social circumstances, which were in contention with the doctrinal aims of their corresponding religions.1 In order to identify points of convergence in the history of these two concepts of apocalypse and to highlight the central role of ...

  • "What Is so Amazing about All This'": Buddhist Criticism of Christianity
           in Sixteenth-/Seventeenth-Century Japan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the history of interreligious encounter, it was common that members of divergent religious traditions exchanged criticism and critical inquiries regarding the respective others' doctrines and practices. This criticism has often been of a polemical, emotionally charged, and nonconstructive nature, in many places revealing a lack of knowledge about others' religious traditions. However, the history of the encounter also includes some different cases. If criticism was not polemically motivated or based on stereotypes about the religious other but informed by an earnest attempt to understand his or her tradition, critics of one religious tradition have formulated constructive suggestions to reform or improve the ...

      Abstract: As of today, large parts of the New Testament have been made available to the reader who seeks to approach Christian texts from a Buddhist point of view. Edgar Bruns has interpreted the Gospel of John;1 John P. Keenan has written commentaries on Mark, Ephesians, Philippians, and James;2 some of the ideas with which he engages can be traced back to Masao Abe's reading of the hymn in Philippians.3 On the other hand, Buddhist sutras and philosophical texts have been explained by Christian authors: Frederik Streng has translated and commented on works by Nāgārjuna;4 Keenan has done so with the Heart Sutra;5 and Perry Schmidt-Leukel with the Bodhicaryāvatāra.6In the case of Keenan's commentaries on the New Testament ...

  • Is Whiteheadian Process Thought Compatible with Early Buddhist

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Process thought has been articulated in numerous forms throughout the history of Western thought since Heraclitus, however, found its most complete and systematic form in the works of Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947). Since the conference on Mahayana Buddhism and Whitehead in 1974 at the University of Hawai'i, the results of numerous collaborations between these schools of thought, for example, the so-called (John) Cobb–(Masao) Abe collaboration, have been published. Not surprisingly, these have been primarily concerned with expressions of Mahayana Buddhism (e.g., Madhyamika, Yogacara, and Zen), whereas there is comparatively less literature comparing Whitehead's thought with that of early Buddhism. In contrast ... Read More

      Abstract: In her important study of Taiwanese immigrants in the United States, Getting Saved in America: Taiwanese Immigration and Religious Experience (2009), Carolyn Chen tells the story of how two groups of Taiwanese immigrants, one Christian and the other Buddhist, in the San Gabriel Valley of Southern California, the Grace Evangelical Church and the Dharma Light Temple, respectively, have become Americans by preserving and fostering their religious faith. Chen's thesis is that "religion makes Taiwanese immigrants into Americans. Religious conversion to Buddhism and evangelical Christianity offers new moral vocabularies, institutional structures, and ethical traditions that reconstruct community, identity, and self in ...

  • Early Chinese Migrant Religious Identities in Pre-1947 Canada

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Religion for many of Canada's earliest Chinese community was not about faith or belief in God, the Buddha, or the Goddess of Compassion (Guanyin).1 It was instead the route to cultivating connections as nominal Christians with the dominant society, as ardent Chinese nationalists (aka KMT or Kuo-min Tang), and sometimes as closeted Buddhists.2 The varied patterns of religious self-identification across Canada were also determined by a region's terrain and climate and, most significantly, racist legislation. Chinese migrants in Canada up to 1947 and in some provinces up to 1969 did not have full legal rights, including freedom of religion.In 1885, the Government of Canada enacted the Chinese Immigration Act ...

      Abstract: I got the idea for Getting Saved in America during a conversation that I had with my aunt in Taipei in the late 1990s. She recounted to me a story of her neighbor, who I will call Mr. Ting. He was a middle-aged man who, like many Taiwanese of some means, sought political security and upward mobility for his family by immigrating to the United States but returned regularly to Taipei for prolonged visits. According to my aunt, Mr. Ting was a changed man after immigrating to the United States—he had become an evangelical Christian. Mr. Ting had cleared his house of "idols"—images of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva and the goddess Matsu—and removed his family ancestral altar and replaced it with a plaque that read, "Christ is the ...

      Abstract: The 2022 release of The Routledge Handbook of Buddhist-Christian Studies1 demonstrated the formalization and maturation of the discipline of Buddhist-Christian studies since the mid-twentieth century. At the same time, most work in the field has been historical, doctrinal, and textual; the discipline's practical, pastoral, and leadership implications remain insufficiently addressed and primarily focused on spiritual care, broadly conceived, within a narrow range of sources and theories. Educators and others who prepare individuals to work as chaplains, spiritual caregivers, and community leaders in the context of religious pluralism, spiritual cross-fertilization, and complex religious bonds2 could rightly ask: ...

      Abstract: Peter Baekelmans is a Belgian Catholic priest and theologian, a member of the missionary Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, a longtime student of the Zen and Shingon traditions, a practitioner of Rinzai Zen and Shingon meditation, and a Shingon priest who has performed the esoteric fire ritual. He lived in Japan for many years and published one earlier book on Shingon Mysticism and another comparing Jesus and Kukai: A World of Non-Duality. He seeks to understand Buddhism in a way that will enhance his Catholic faith and practice by juxtaposing aspects of the Christian tradition with analogous features of Buddhist teaching and practice. For example, he compares the Apostle Paul's acknowledgment of the ... Read More

      Abstract: John P. Keenan, an Episcopal priest and professor emeritus of religion at Middlebury College with expertise in Buddhism and a prolific comparative theologian, has expanded his corpus of Mahāyāna readings of New Testament texts with a new commentary on Ephesians. This book is the first of what will be multiple volumes. It introduces Ephesians, the letter's context, the Tiantai Buddhist Zhiyi, and Keenan's own approach before considering Ephesians 1:1–2, the letter's greeting. Keenan concludes this initial volume by looking ahead to the Berakah blessing that follows the greeting and comprises 1:3–14, which will be addressed in volume 2 along with the Hoyadot prayer of 1:15–23.

      Abstract: This is an intriguing but difficult book to review. It is part memoir, part biography, part theological reflection, and part narrative of some of Oshida's Zen-inspired Christian retreats. The author has a doctorate in comparative literature from the University of California, Berkeley, and he taught at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He spent several sabbaticals in East Asia and India, and has also served as a deacon and spiritual director at the Newman Catholic Student Center. All of that background is clearly intertwined with his presentation of Fr. Oshida, a Japanese Dominican who, in turn, has frequently been described as a person with "a double religious identity"—a Zen Buddhist cultural background by ... Read More
