(p.126) Chapter Six Genshin and Pure Land Buddhism
Genshin's Ojōyōshū and the Construction of Pure Land Discourse in Heian Japan

Robert F. Rhodes

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter takes up Genshin’s involvement with Pure Land Buddhism after he secluded himself in Yokawa. It first discusses Genshin’s Byakugō kanbō, his first (albeit extremely short) work on contemplating Amida, written just shortly after he turned to the Pure Land faith. Then it provides a brief outline of the Ōjōyōshū. Finally, the chapter ends with a lengthy analysis of the Nijūgo zanmaie, a Pure Land association in which Genshin took a leading role.

Keywords:   Yokawa, Byakugō kanbō, Nijūgo zanmaie, Pure Land association
