Re: Tiantai in East Asia

The revival in the Republican Era is really interesting. Do you know more about it? It seems like it was initiated by a monk named Dixian and there is a dissertation about him online, but it is not for free (https://m.dissertationtopic.net/doc/1909585). Dixian had a disciple, Tan Xu (https://en.m.wi...

Tiantai in East Asia

Hello everyone, I was wondering about the state of Tiantai practices and studies in East Asia, apart from Japanese Tendai. In Korea, Cheontae (http://www.cheontae.org/) seems to be quite active. They have their own university (though it is probably rather small) and they have several large temples t...

Re: California Tendai Learning Center

Do you know about the relationship between Tendai USA and the Tendai Buddhist Institute? The TBI is not mentioned in the link list of their website - is there a cooperation between both groups?

Re: New book about Genshin's Ōjōyōshū

I had no idea BDK was even translating it! You might be interested in Genshin's Esoteric Contemplation of Amida which I cross-posted here with Rev. Jikai's (he translated it) permission. Ah right, thank you. I'll read that again! :) Thank you for sharing it! I only read about BDK planning to transl...

New book about Genshin's Ōjōyōshū

Maybe you already heard about it - a new book about the Ōjōyōshū (written in 985 by Tendai scholar Genshin) came out: https://www.uhpress.hawaii.edu/p-9756-9780824872489.aspx Here is an excerpt/article(?) by the author Robert F.

Re: Meditation in Tendai

Yes, I am really interested in learning more about the details of Tendai mediations though this is probably something I would have to study with a teacher and ultimately practice by myself to get a broader understanding. So far I have only experience with Zen and Jodoshu where explaining the basics ...

Re: Meditation in Tendai

Thank you all for your replies! It is really interesting reading about modern Tendaishu and your experiences. I have to apologize for not being more active in this thread before.

Meditation in Tendai

Hello, I wonder how mediation in modern-day Tendai in Japan and the West looks like. Are the Four Samadis still being practiced today and how much was changed to apply the techniques to lay practitioners and priests? So far I could only find that meditation on the breath (including visualitions of t...

Re: Jakucho Setouchi

The only book in English I could find is "Distant Rain". Did you hear from Jiko Kohno and Chiko Komatsu? Both are also Tendai nuns, who's books were translated to western languages.
