Buddhadharma : Spring 2012
72 BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY SPRING 2 0 1 2 militarism, but as Blum points out, Kiyozawa’s refusal to engage issues of wartime rhetoric must be seen in light of his intense inward focus. Although from the perspective of such movements as Engaged Buddhism, the unwillingness to address social, economic, environ- mental, and political ills might appear to be a failure, Kiyozawa’s lack of direct engagement could be interpreted in light of Buddhism’s origins as a renunciant religion in which the goal is to live in this world but not be of it, to realize nirvanic release in the midst of samsara. His insistence that students at Shinshu Daigaku study solely for the purpose of spiritual liberation resonates with the ideals of the early Indian sangha and later institutions such as Nalanda University, where monastic practice and study were the focus. Kaneko emphasized that while one might receive the understanding of the Buddhist teachings with one’s mind, one receives the true dharma in one’s hands, palms together, entrusting this limited, foolish self into the limitless ocean of light of boundless compassion. This seems to reveal a thread running through the development of Japanese Pure Land, from the twelfth to the twentieth centu- ries, from Honen, who abandoned sec- tarian authority and the appearance of a pure monastic existence to become one with the people, to Kiyozawa and others who rejected the dominant institutions of their day to plumb the depths of their inward spirituality. Buddhism, whether in Asia or the West, reveals itself to be a rich tapes- try of diverse strands in which pioneers risked their standing and even their very lives to establish new pathways appropriate for their times and places. The editors and translators of these two volumes invite the reader to explore developments in Japanese Pure Land Buddhism as emblematic of this tradi- tion of innovation.
