AbstractThe writings of popular lay Buddhist writers Kino Kazuyoshi and Hiro
Sachiya affirm traditional Japanese Buddhist ideas of original enlightenment,
suchness, nonduality, immediacy, Buddha nature, emptiness, ineffability, and
the valorization of everyday life. Kino presents his ideas of self-affirmation
through a loose association of stories and lessons drawn from life, literature,
and Buddhist texts. Rejecting early Buddhist teachings such as the Four Noble
Truths and dependent origination, Hiro Sachiya argues for a Zen that champions
individual freedom and disengagement from social expectations as an
alternative to the stresses of Japanese life. Despite their free and contemporized
interpretations, both writers present a pansectarian Buddhism consistent
with traditional Mahayana orthodox ideals.
