About Book:

Facets of Buddhism is a short collection of essays written over the years by one of the pre-eminent Japanese scholars in the field of Buddhism and comparative religion. The ten essays are loosely linked together by the common themes of dependent co-origination (pratitya-samutpada), the effect of Madhyamika and Yogacara ideas on Japanese literature and culture, the tension and harmonies amongst different religious traditions and different Buddhist sects. Scholars will be particularly interested in this collection of essays for the access they provide to a wide range of Japanese scholarly exchange and opinion, much of which has until now been available only in Japanese. They will also be interested in the presentation of the different Chinese, Tibetan and Japanese interpretations of important passages from classical Indian Buddhist texts and in the comparison of meditation techniques described by Indian, Chinese and Tibetan writers. Drawing on his experiences during a long and distinguished career as a teacher and scholar, professor Iida provides in these essays new and valuable insights into the place of women and the feminine principle in Buddhism, the convergence of folk beliefs and philosophical Buddhism in Japan, the rise of the modern Japanese Buddhist sects and through a comparison of Buddhist, Christian and sufi-yogic practices and modern psychology, the difference, similarities and interdependence of the different faiths of mankind.
