Buddhist Critical Spirituality: Prajna and Sunyata

Shohei Ichimura (Author)

With the ending of a century marked by broad ideological conflict, post-modern philosophers, including those who quest the nature of human spirituality, stand at a turning point. It is due to this nature inherent in all humans that an individual is prompted to move to knowledge, faith, meaning, hope, transcendence, connectedness, love and compassion. This volume is a collection of fifteen essays which were presented by the author on different occasions. Each essay is complete for the meaning of its own title. These fifteen research articles are primarily based on the discipline of Indian and Buddhist Studies. The collection is designed to propose a Buddhist philosophy of religion – that the insight of Prajna and Sunyata initiates a future religion which is freed both from conflict between reasoning and believing, and from goal-oriental cycles of life. It addresses transformation from the conflict-ridden quest for a supreme being, to the search for a non-theistic nature of spirituality that provides a foundation for universal human happiness and salvation. For the discipline of Buddhist Studies, this collection also demonstrates the productive value of drawing upon cross-cultural and cross-racial literary sources and traditions.
