    Towards Enhanced Divine-Human-Earth Relations: A Christian-Buddhist Contribution.Margaret P. Twomey - unknown
    The central claim of the dissertation is that lesser known and somewhat neglected, yet influential thinkers, within classical religious traditions have something worthwhile to contribute to the kind of ethos we should adopt in the face of the world’s various environmental crises. Moreover an exploration of such perspectives is best done in dialogue, particularly between Eastern and Western thought. I examine this claim primarily through a dialogue between the Christian philosopher John Scottus Eriugena and the Japanese Buddhist philosopher Kūkai. This (...)

    Although the planet is currently facing an unprecedented array of environmental crises, those who are in a position to do something about them seem to be paralyzed and the general public apathetic. This pathological situation derives in part from a particular concep­tion of the human relationship to nature which is central to anthro­pocentric traditions of thought in the West, and which understands the human being as separate from, and superior to, all other beings in the natural world. Traditional East Asian (...)

    Hermeneutics of Acrostics: From Kūkai to Tsurayuki.Lone Takeuchi - 2013 - .
    This study is an attempt to show how the poetic figure of the acrostic was constructed in ninth-century Japan as a tantric semiological implement in a poetic discourse, in which poets working in Sino-Japanese or kanabun constructed kami cultic ritual in various forms and contexts within the broad framework of Kūkai’s tantric Buddhist semiology. Three poetic texts, a Sino-Japanese poem by Kūkai and two prose-poem texts from Kokin wakashū and/or Ise monogatari, all of which contain an acrostic, are analysed and (...)

    A Comparative Study of the Concept of Dharmakaya Buddha: Vairocana in Hua-Yen and Mahavairocana in Shingon Buddhism.Kwangsoo Park - 2003 - International Journal of Buddhist Thought and Culture 2:305-331.
    The concept of Dharmakaya is the central theme in both the Hua-yen and Shingon Buddhist literatures. Hua-yen Buddhism adopts Dharmakaya Vairocana Buddha as the main Buddha. Shingon Buddhism, on the other hand, claims that their secret doctrine is the direct teaching of Dharmakaya Mahavairocana Buddha. Even though these two schools are based on the same idea of Dharmakaya Buddha, the concepts of Vairocana in Hua-yen and Mahavairocana in Shingon are different in their doctrinal formulation. Hua-yen Buddhist literature elaborates the function (...)

    Bodhicitta in Kukai's Shingon Practice.Kenneth R. White - 1998 - Dissertation, The University of Wisconsin - Madison
    As factor of enlightenment, bodhicitta is fundamental to Kukai's soteriological scheme, being compartmentalized into two fundamental aspects: 'aspiration for enlightenment' and 'potentially enlightened mind.' Such a depiction incorporates both impetus for, and object of, enlightenment, exemplifying a total integratory approach. Whereas early textual mention of bodhicitta merely emphasized its effective cause for compassionate engagement, subsequent philological evolution afforded it an aspect linking practitioner to Dharmakaya Mah avairocana in essential integration. Termed sokushin-j obutsu , first mention is made in Bodhicitta-sastra , (...)

    Kūkai's Shingon: Embodiment of Emptiness.John W. M. Krummel - forthcoming - In Bret W. Davis (ed.), The Oxford Handbook of Japanese Philosophy. Oxford University Press.
    This chapter explicates the philosophy of the body of sixth-century Buddhist thinker Kūkai. Kūkai brings together what initially seem to be opposing concepts: body and emptiness. He does this in the context of formulating a system of cosmology inseparable from religious practice. We interact with the rest of the cosmos through our body. Kūkai characterizes the cosmos in turn as the body of the Buddha, who personifies the embodiment of the dharma. This cosmic body is comprised of myriad bodies through (...)

    Embodied Implacement in Kūkai and Nishida.John W. M. Krummel - 2015 - Philosophy East and West 65 (3):786-808.
    Two Japanese philosophers not often read together but both with valuable insights concerning body and place are Kūkai 空海, the founder of Shingon 真言 Buddhism, and Nishida Kitarō 西田幾多郎, the founder of Kyoto School philosophy. This essay will examine the importance of embodied implacement in correlativity with the environment in the philosophies of these two preeminent intellects of Japan. One was a medieval religionist and the other a modern philosopher, and yet similarities inherited from Mahāyāna Buddhism are to be found (...)

    Metaphor and Maṇḍala in Shingon Buddhist Theology.David Gardiner - 2008 - Sophia 47 (1):43-55.
    Buddhist maṇḍala that are made of colored sand or are painted on cloth have been well represented in Asian art circles in the West. Discussions of the role that they can play in stimulating religious contemplation or even as sacred icons charged with power have also appeared in English scholarship. The metaphorical meaning of the term maṇḍala, however, is less commonly referenced. This paper discusses how the founder of the Japanese school of Shingon Buddhism, the Buddhist monk Kūkai of the (...)
