Brian Edward Brown holds doctoral degrees in law and theology. He has lectured and taught on the history and philosophy of comparative religions.
The fundamental tenet of Mahayana Buddhism, which is responsible for guiding and sustaining the doctrine and discipline of its spiritual paths, is that all animate beings have the potential to reach the ultimate and perfect enlightenment known as Buddhahood. This book examines the ontological presuppositions and the corresponding soteriological-epistemological principles that sustain and define such a theory. This book provides a context for Buddhist studies to understand the major insights and influence of various Buddhist schools. The dynamics of the Buddha nature is central to zen praxis. However, it is not thematic or implicit. It is also a key articulation of Tendai, Shingon and Kegon thought. The book aims to create a coherent metaphysics (Tathata) that integrates the various traditions of the Tathagata–embryo and the storehouse consciousness. The books contribution to the broader field of the history of religions rests in its presentation and analysis of the Buddhist enlightenment as the salvific-transformational moment in which tathata awakens to itself comes to perfect slef-realization as the absolute suchness of reality, in and through phenomenal human consciousness. The book is an interpretation of the Buddhist path as the spontaneous self-emergence of embryonic absolute knowledge as it comes to free itself from the concealments of adventitious defilements and possess itself in fully self-explicitatedself-consciousness as the ‘Highest Truth’ and unconditional nature of all existence, it does so only in the form of omniscient wisdom.
