All these elements have their roots in the enduring Japanese folk religious tradition that was based originally in a primarily agricultural society in which such actions as cyclical observances and rituals, petitions to deities for good harvests, concern for the spirits of the dead and their potential for malevolent actions against the living, and beliefs in the powers of the spiritual world to help or hinder humans in their pursuit of happiness in this life were paramount, but which continues to exert its influences in contemporary, industrialised Japan.

Edited by Mark Teeuwen and Fabio Rambelli. RoutledgeCurzon, London, I suspect my approach may be fairly typical, and it certainly is convenient. Buddhism may be more complex, but its basic principles are not that difficult to grasp. Japanese Buddhism, moreover, offers a neat sequence of patriarchs and their sects that are easily parsed to help beginners keep track of them. At the introductory level, this approach seems to work reasonably well.

Se alle arbeider i Cristin. The transformations Buddhism has been undergoing in the modern age have inspired much research over the last decade. The main focus of attention has been the phenomenon known as Buddhist modernism, which is defined as a conscious attempt to adjust Buddhist teachings and practices in conformity with the modern norms of rationality, science, or gender equality. This book advances research on Buddhist modernism by attempting to clarify the highly diverse ways in which Buddhist faith, thought, and practice have developed in the modern age, both in Buddhist heartlands in Asia and in the West. It presents a collection of case studies that, taken together, demonstrate how Buddhist traditions interact with modern phenomena such as colonialism and militarism, the market economy, global interconnectedness, the institutionalization of gender equality, and recent historical events such as de-industrialization and the socio-cultural crisis in post-Soviet Buddhist areas. This volume shows how the re invention of traditions constitutes an important pathway in the development of Buddhist modernities and emphasizes the pluralistic diversity of these forms in different settings.

Unifying Traditions, Cosmological Perspectives and the Vitalistic Universe

Nature and varieties

This volume offers a multidisciplinary approach to the combinatory tradition that dominated premodern and early modern Japanese religion, known as honji suijaku originals and their traces. It questions received, simplified accounts of the interactions between Shinto and Japanese Buddhism, and presents a more dynamic and variegated religious world, one in which the deities' Buddhist originals and local traces did not constitute one-to-one associations, but complex combinations of multiple deities based on semiotic operations, doctrines, myths, and legends. The book's essays, all based on specific case studies, discuss the honji suijaku paradigm from a number of different perspectives, always integrating historical and doctrinal analysis with interpretive insights.

This theory, created and developed mostly by Tendai monks, was never systematized, but was nonetheless very pervasive and very influential. Divided in ten volumes and 50 chapters, it supports the Tendai and Ise Shinto honji suijaku theory according to which Japanese kami were simply local manifestations of the Indian gods of Buddhism. This theory was never systematized, but became nonetheless the most important tool through which foreign Buddhism was reconciled with local kami beliefs. The book illustrates it through tales dedicated to various shrines and to the Buddhist gods which are the true nature of the kami they enshrine. The common point of the tales is that, before being reborn as a tutelary kami of an area, a person has first to be born and suffer there as a human being.

The Japanese word kami is usually translated as god, however, it is often claimed that the word kami and the English word god are quite different concepts. Needless to say, they differ remarkably on many points since they were originally used in cultures with completely different backgrounds. The basic structure of the monotheistic ideas in the Judeo-Christian tradition strongly contrasts with that of the polytheistic ideas in Shinto. In addition to the question of whether kami is to be understood as monotheistic or polytheistic, consideration must also be taken of whether it is to be viewed as a god of creation or one of transformation; whether an absolute gap or continuity exists between the god and human beings; and whether or not the god is viewed as the source of strict commandments. Likewise, ideas of kami have changed in many ways historically.

The theory was never systematized but was nonetheless very pervasive and very influential. The term honji suijaku itself is an example of the Japanese practice of Yojijukugo , a four-character combination of phrases which can be read literally or idiomatically. Early Buddhist monks did not doubt the existence of kami but saw them as inferior to their buddhas. The expression was originally developed in China [7] and used by Tendai Buddhists to distinguish an absolute truth from its historical manifestation for example, the eternal Buddha from the historical Buddha, or the absolute Dharma from its historical forms, the first being the honji , the second the suijaku. In the 10th and 11th centuries there are numerous examples of Buddhist deities and kami pairings: The deities are usually Kannon , Yakushi , Amida or Shaka Nyorai.

 Не понимаю, - сказала.  - Мы же говорим не о реверсии какой-либо сложной функции, а о грубой силе. PGP, Lucifer, DSA - не важно. Алгоритм создает шифр, который кажется абсолютно стойким, а ТРАНСТЕКСТ перебирает все варианты, пока не находит ключ. Стратмор ответил ей тоном учителя, терпеливого и умеющего держать себя в руках: - Да, Сьюзан, ТРАНСТЕКСТ всегда найдет шифр, каким бы длинным он ни .

 Я просматриваю регистратор лифта Стратмора.  - Мидж посмотрела в монитор и постучала костяшками пальцев по столу.  - Он здесь, - сказала она как о чем-то само собой разумеющемся.  - Сейчас находится в шифровалке. Смотри.

 - Нужно сразу быть точным. У шифров-убийц обычно есть функция злопамятства - чтобы не допустить использования метода проб и ошибок.
