AbstractIn this intriguing work, Hayao Kawai, Japan's first Jungian
psychoanalyst, examines his own personal experience of how the
Buddhism that was part of his culture gradually reacted to his
becoming a Jungian.
Kawai reviews his method of psychotherapy and looks at I
in the context of Buddhism. His analysis provides a new
understanding of the human psyche from the perspective of someone
rooted in the East.
Kawai begins by contemplating his personal koan: "Am I a
Buddhist and/or a Jungian?" His honest reflections parallel Jung's
early skepticism about Buddhism and later his positive regard for
Buddha's teachings. He then relates how the individuation process is
symbolically and meaningfully revealed in two philosophical and
artistic picture series, one Eastern and one Western.
After exploring the Buddhist conception of the ego and the self,
which is the opposite of the Western view, Kawai expands
psychotherapy to include sitting in silence and holding contradictions.
He concludes that true integration of East and West is both possible
and impossible, but his work should help readers deepen their
understanding of this area of psychology and of Eastern philosophy.
