Shinran and the Sutra of Immeasurable Life: Reflections on Reading in the Buddhist Tradition

August 6, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Co-sponsored by the Ryukoku University Translation Center and Institute of Buddhist Studies, Center for Contemporary Shin Buddhist Studies.

In this symposium a number of Buddhist scholars and theologians will address the questions of how Shinran’s treatment of the Sutra of Immeasurable Life might help us to understand what it means to read a Buddhist text (scripture) and what such reading might entail, require or imply.

Papers will be presented by Dennis Hirota, Luis Gomez, Charles Hallisey, James Fredericks, Mark Csikszentmihalyi, Mitsuya Dake, Ichigyo Oyama, David Matsumoto and others.
