Auxiliary Practices and Deathbed Nenbutsu

(p.263) Chapter Ten Auxiliary Practices and Deathbed Nenbutsu
Genshin's Ojōyōshū and the Construction of Pure Land Discourse in Heian Japan

Robert F. Rhodes

University of Hawai'i Press

Although Genshin maintained that the nenbutsu is the central Pure Land practice, he also argued that it must be undertaken in conjunction with various auxiliary practices, such as keeping the precepts, in order to ensure the efficacy of the nenbutsu. This chapter takes up the various auxiliary practices that Genshin enumerates in the Ōjōyōshū. In addition, this chapter also describes the deathbed nenbutsu ritual which Genshin also highlights in the Ōjōyōshū.

Keywords:   Nenbutsu, auxiliary practices, precepts, deathbed nenbutsu
