2022 Ryukoku Lecture: Dr. Bunei Takada

March 14, 2022 - March 18, 2022

Ōjōyōshū- A Collection on the Essentials Concerning Birth and Shinran Shōnins 「往生要集』と親鸞聖人」 

Professor Bunei Takada, Ryukoku University, Faculty of Letters: Shin Buddhist Studies

Ōjōyōshū – A Collection on the Essentials Concerning Birth is the important scripture in Shin Buddhist studies. The author was Genshin, one of the Seven Pure Land Masters selected by Shinran. Shin Buddhist researchers and scholars tend to read this text in the context of Jōdoshinshū, and unconsciously overlook the original intension of Ōjōyōshū. This lecture is about two points: the intention of Ōjōyōshū, and how Shinran understood the text. Please join us to appreciate the profundity of scripture interpretations by carefully reading Ōjōyōshū.

『往生要集』は浄土真宗の「聖教」であり、その著者源信和尚は浄土真宗の「七高僧」の一人として尊崇されている。そのため私たちが『往生要集』を読む場合、最初から浄土真宗流に読んでしまい『往生要集』の原意は等閑に付されがちである。では『往生要集』は本来どういう教えなのか?そして親鸞聖人はそれをどう読まれたのか?この度の講義では、この2つの視点をもって『往生要集』を読み、聖典解釈の奥深さを味わいたい。
