Nowadays in Japan，New type of religion，called Neo-newrising religion or Hyper religion，is prevailing and captivating mainly among young people. Along with such a trends, what could do the traditional Zen Buddhism in Japan? Or，what action is possible to do from the traditional Buddhism? In modern age，especially after the World war，under the economic development. Japanese Buddhism was corrupted to the outward formalism，and was losing its vital power. On the other hand，many young people feel the lack of satisfaction of mind. Therefore, they are converted to Neo-newrising religion such as AUM. Then，what is the role of Traditional Zen Buddhism of Japan? And what could or should do from its side? It's a serious question. So，I'd like to try to join this problem，by analyzing the Traditional and Neo-newrising one from many sides.
