Masters of Mahamudra
Masters of Mahamudra (August 1986)
Songs and Histories of the Eighty-Four Buddhist Siddhas
Keith Dowman - Author

In Tibetan Buddhism, Mahamudra represents a perfected level of meditative realization: it is the inseparable union of wisdom and compassion, of emptiness and skillful means. These eighty-four masters, some historical, some archetypal, accomplished this practice in India where they lived between the eighth and twelfth centuries. Leading unconventional lives, the siddhas include some of the greatest Buddhist teachers; Tilopa, Naropa, and Marpa amon...(Read More)
The Real is Not the Rational

The Tales of Muju Ichien, A Voice for Pluralism in Kamakura Buddhism
Robert E. Morrell - Author

Sand and Pebbles presents the first complete English rendering of Shasekishu--the classic, popular Buddhist "Tale Literature" (setsuwa). This collection of instructive, yet often humorous, anecdotes appeared in the late thirteenth century, within decades of the first stirrings of the revolutionary movements of Kamakura Buddhism. Shasekishu's author, Muju Ichien (1226-1312), lived in a rural temple apart from the centers of political and...(Read More)

A Phenomenological Study of Kukai and Dogen
David Edward Shaner - Author

In a pioneering study, David Shaner uses the resources of phenomenology to penetrate Buddhist philosophy in terms of Kukai and Dogen. In addition to this original and rigorous methodology, his work offers insights into some fundamental difficulties intrinsic to comparative studies. The problem of the relation between body and mind is a prime example. Shaner's observations shed a brilliant light on these traditional antinomies as they may be r...(Read More)
Existential and Ontological Dimensions of Time in Heidegger and Dogen
Existential and Ontological Dimensions of Time in Heidegger and Dogen (June 1985)
Steven Heine - Author

In a landmark work, Steven Heine establishes the basis and framework for philosophical dialogue between Heidegger's approach to "Being and Time" and Dogen's doctrine of "being-time." Close examination of their analysis of the true nature, structure, and meaning of time reveals critical points of convergence in the existential and ontological dimensions of their thought.

Heine asserts that Heidegger and Dogen are uniquely suited for critical ...(Read More)

Hangin, Indiana University

Buddhist Faith and Sudden Enlightenment
Buddhist Faith and Sudden Enlightenment (June 1983)
Sung Bae Park - Author

Buddhist Faith and Sudden Enlightenment explains how sudden enlightenment occurs through the awakening of patriarchal faith. This is the non-dual affirmation that one is already Buddha as opposed to the doctrinal, dualistic faith that one can become Buddha. The essence of the presentation is that patriarchal faith forms the basis for sudden enlightenment in Zen meditation. For the practitioner, this book establishes the Zen method of m...(Read More)

A Critical Study of Cumulative Penetration vs. Interpretation
Steve Odin - Author

This study establishes a comprehensive transcultural dialogue between Whitehead's process metaphysics and East Asian Hua-yen Buddhism, including both the profound parallels and the doctrinal debates that arise between these two traditions. To advance this dialogue, Dr. Odin has called upon several other Western hermeneutical systems in order to radically reinterpret Hua-yen modesthought: phenomenology, depth psychology, linguistic analysis, and di...(Read More)
