Item Description: Theclassics.Us, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1910 edition. Excerpt: . IX. NIRVANA. A STUDY IN SYNTHETIC BUDDHISM. I. It is not possible, O Subhuti, that this treatise of the Law should be heard by beings of little faith, --by those who believe in Self, in beings, in living beings, and in persons. --The DiamondCutter. There still widely prevails in Europe and America the idea that Nirvana signifies, to Buddhist minds, neither more nor less than absolute nothingness, --complete annihilation. This idea is erroneous. But it is erroneous only because it contains half of a truth. This half of a truth has no value or interest, or even intelligibility, unless joined with the other half. And of the other half no suspicion yet exists in the average Western mind. Nirvana, indeed, signifies an extinction. But if by this extinction of individual being we understand souldeath, our conception of Nirvana is wrong. Or if we take Nirvana to mean such reabsorption of the finite into the infinite as that predicted by Indian pantheism, again our idea is foreign to Buddhism. Buddhist reasoning pronounces the greatest of all illusions, and even the source of all sorrow and sin. The mind, the thoughts, and all the senses are subject to the law of life and death. With knowledge of Self and the laws of birth and death, there is no grasping, and no sense-perception. Knowing oneself and knowing how the senses act, there is no room for the idea of I, or the ground for framing it. The thought of Self gives rise to all sorrows, --binding the world as with fetters; but having found there is no I that can be bound, then all these bonds are severed. * Nevertheless, if we declare that Nirvana means the extinction of individual sensation, emotion, thought, the final disintegration of conscious personality, the annihilation of everything.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: .Spirit anwious only in the matter of little sister O-Noto;--with humble salutation, that she be honorably seen to, supplicate. To the August Lord Master, It is not true that Old Japan is rapidly disappearing. It cannot disappear within at least another hundred years; perhaps it will never entirely disappear. Many curious and beautiful things have vanished; but Old Japan survives in art, in faith, in customs and habits, in the hearts and the homes of the people: it may be found everywhere by those who know how to look for it, --and nowhere more easily than in this great city of ship-building, watchmaking, beer-brewing, and cotton-spinning. I confess that I went to Osaka chiefly to see the temples, especially the famous Tenn6ji. Tenn6ji, or, more correctly, Shitenn6ji, the Temple of the Four Deva Kings,1 is one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Japan. It was founded early in the seventh century by Umayado-no-Oji, now called Sh6toku Taishi, son of the Emperor Yomei, and prince regent under the Empress Suiko (572--621 A. D.). He has been well called the Constantine of Japanese Buddhism; for he decided the future of Buddhism in the Empire, first by a great battle in the reign of his father, Yomei Tenn6, and afterwards by legal enactments and by the patronage of Buddhist learning. The previous Emperor, Bitatsu Tenn6, had permitted the preaching of Buddhism by Korean priests, and had built two temples. But under the reign of Yomei, one Mononobe no Moriya, a powerful noble, and a bitter opponent of the foreign religion, rebelled against such tolerance, burned the temples, banished the priests, and ofiered battle to the imperial forces. These, tradition says, were being driven back when the Emperor s son--then only sixteen years. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130410716

Item Description: Rarebooksclub.com, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: .Spirit anwious only in the matter of little sister O-Noto;--with humble salutation, that she be honorably seen to, supplicate. To the August Lord Master, It is not true that Old Japan is rapidly disappearing. It cannot disappear within at least another hundred years; perhaps it will never entirely disappear. Many curious and beautiful things have vanished; but Old Japan survives in art, in faith, in customs and habits, in the hearts and the homes of the people: it may be found everywhere by those who know how to look for it, --and nowhere more easily than in this great city of ship-building, watchmaking, beer-brewing, and cotton-spinning. I confess that I went to Osaka chiefly to see the temples, especially the famous Tenn6ji. Tenn6ji, or, more correctly, Shitenn6ji, the Temple of the Four Deva Kings,1 is one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Japan. It was founded early in the seventh century by Umayado-no-Oji, now called Sh6toku Taishi, son of the Emperor Yomei, and prince regent under the Empress Suiko (572--621 A. D.). He has been well called the Constantine of Japanese Buddhism; for he decided the future of Buddhism in the Empire, first by a great battle in the reign of his father, Yomei Tenn6, and afterwards by legal enactments and by the patronage of Buddhist learning. The previous Emperor, Bitatsu Tenn6, had permitted the preaching of Buddhism by Korean priests, and had built two temples. But under the reign of Yomei, one Mononobe no Moriya, a powerful noble, and a bitter opponent of the foreign religion, rebelled against such tolerance, burned the temples, banished the priests, and ofiered battle to the imperial forces. These, tradition says, were being driven back when the Emperor s son--then only sixteen years. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130410716
