AbstractThis paper introduces the teachings of three contemporary practitioners of
Tendai Buddhism. I argue that the study of Japanese Buddhism has focused
on doctrine and the past to the detriment of our understanding of contemporary
teaching. Through an examination of the teachings of contemporary
practitioners of austerities, I show that practice is drawn on as a source more
than classical doctrine, that conservative values are prized, and that the teachings
show strong similarities to the teachings of the new religions, suggesting
a broad-based shared worldview.
