AbstractWhat was the response of Soto Buddhist priests to the social situation facing Japan at the beginning of the twentieth century ? What influence did
their religious background have on their responses to the modernization of
Japan ? This article examines the lives and thought of two Japanese Soto
Buddhist priests-Takeda Hanshi and Uchiyama Gudo-both with the
same religious training and tradition, yet who chose diametrically opposite
responses. Takeda Hanshi supported Japan’s foreign policies, especially in
Korea; Uchiyama opposed Japanese nationalism and militarism, and was
executed for treason. What led them to such opposite responses, and what
conclusions can be drawn concerning the influence of religious traditions
on specific individual choices and activities ?
