Sample text

Although our reading, “the mind in itself is Buddha,” follows Ôkubo, the earlier “Honzanban” text uses the word body (shin 身) in place of mind (shin 心), which would seem more appropriate here, since Shingon asserts that attainment of Buddhahood is achieved “in this body” (sokushin jôbutsu 即身成仏). 35. In Shingon Buddhism, Dainichi Nyorai 大日如来 is surrounded at the four quarters by four other Buddhas, of which there are two sets, one in the Vajradha¯ tu (Diamond World), another in the Garbhadha¯tu (Womb-store World).

Word-counting scholars will not do—that would be a case of the blind leading the blind. Today, all who follow the right transmission of the Buddha-patriarchs preserve and maintain the Buddha Dharma by following with reverence a clear-sighted master who has attained the Way and is in accord with realization. Because of that, the spirits of the realms of light and darkness36 come to him and take refuge; enlightened Arhats37 also seek him out to beg his teaching. None are excluded from acquiring the means of illuminating the mind-ground.

Question 14: Upon entering the priesthood a person immediately sheds the various ties to secular life so there will be nothing to hinder him in his negotia- 54. The precepts are all included and present in zazen. ” (Shôbôgenzô zuimonki, II. 1). 55. We use the word “mantra” to render the word shingon 真言 (literally, “true words”), which refers to the mantras and dharanis employed in esoteric Buddhism. These magic or esoteric formulas are repeated to bring various benefits, such as unity with Buddha.
