Re: English Language Material on Shingon?

The books by Taiko Yamasaki are a great introduction to practice. I understand the English version is much more adaptation than translation. If i remember correctly it's the concatenation of two books. However it doesn't disparage with my undestanding of Shingon Shû and more importantly with my Mas...

Re: Usnisa Vijaya Heart Mantra

If I'm not mistaken, the name in japan is "Bucho Soncho Darani". The short version provided makes me think of a mantra of Amida: On amirita teizei kara un.

Re: Shingon daily practice

I don't know if there's an "official nenbutsu practice" in Shingon, but the feeling that i gather from frequenting my teacher is that the Shingon worldview is compatible with many many forms of buddhists practices. Until the Edo period there wrerent intersectarian barriers. I've read here: http://de...

Re: Shingon daily practice

Since my teacher transmitted me the shingon in japanese I use the japanese version. The sanskrit vs japanese is an age old debate.

Re: Shingon daily practice

Hello, I'm a practitionner of Buzan-Ha Shingi Shingon. I live very far from my temple, my daily routine is very close the one provided by Shingon.org . I only add the 25th chapter of the myôo renge kyô and Ajikan. The pratice of Jusanbutsu(mantras of the shingon's 13 divinities) is somewhat "problem...

Re: sravakayana et pratyekabuddhayana in ancient japan

Dears misters, Thank you for your answers. The pdf is really interesting. As a side note, it seems to me that intersectarian barriers in japanese buddhism are often taken by scholars as something far too absolute. I gather from what I read that there were 2 schools in Nara time centered around vinay...

Re: Dream & Sleep Yogas

Hello,

As an unordained practionner i would say that there aren't such practices in Shingon. Although, my knowledge is scarce, so i may be mistaken. None the less dreams seem to play an important role in the spiritual life of some practitionner, EG Myoe to cite only one.

sravakayana et pratyekabuddhayana in ancient japan

Hello, To further my research on japanese buddhism I need to understand what does "sravakayana" ans "pratyekabuddhayana" was meaning for a japanese monks of yore.

There exists an english book by Hisao Inagaki which is a dictionary of Japanese Buddhist terms. I glanced through it and it seems very very good and very thorough. Of course it contains much more then only yogacara terms. I have access to a copy of it if there is something particular you are intere...

Hello everyone,

I'm Phyllobius, from south of france. I'm a Shingon practionner, friend, father and husband, maybe a Boddhisattva. I'm deeply in love with japan and begin to learn classical chinese (by myself) in order to read the writings of Kukai to name a few.

May all beings attain boddhi.
