AbstractThe author presents the essentials of Buddhist philosophy. The different schools of thought formerly or still existing in Japan are systemized on the theory that these schools have preserved and fairly represent all of the doctrines of both Hinayana and Mahayana Buddhism. There is a brief introduction and historical note tracing the Indian background of Buddhism. Six fundamental principles of Mahayana philosophy are presented. Eleven Japanese Buddhist schools of thought are then discussed. These brief expositions include remarks as to historical derivation and the essential elements of the philosophy involved.
