AbstractWithin the doctrine of the Shingon School there is the theory that the activities of body,speech and mind are essentially of the same nature as the corresponding activities of a buddha. These three forms of activity are thus referred to as the 'secret of body,' 'secret of speech' and 'secret of mind,' and are known collectively as the 'three secrets.' The present work,"The Meanings of Sound,Word and Reality," deals with the 'secret of speech.'

Quoting from the Mahavairocana-sutra (No. 39),Kukai states that 'sound' and 'word' are in essence manifestations of the virtues of Mahavairocana, the embodiment of truth itself,and that therefore mantras (Jap.:shingon) are actually manifestations of truth. The name Shingon School derives in fact from this view that the word is truth itself.
