Facets of Buddhism is a collection of essays that one of the most prominent Japanese scholars in the field has written over many years. The ten essays are loosely linked together by the common themes of (a) dependent co-origination (pratitya-samutpada), (b) the effect of Madhyamika and Yogacara ideas on Japanese literature and culture, and (c) the tension and harmonies amongst different religious traditions and different Buddhist sects. This collection of essays will be of interest to scholars because it provides access to wide-ranging Japanese scholarly exchange and opinions, which was previously only available in Japanese. They will be particularly interested in the Chinese, Tibetan, and Japanese interpretations of key passages in classical Indian Buddhist texts. Also, they will be interested in the comparison of meditation techniques by Tibetan, Chinese, and Indian writers. Professor Iida draws on his long and distinguished career as an educator and scholar to provide valuable insights into the role of women in Buddhism, the convergence between folk beliefs and philosophical Buddhism within Japan, and, through the comparison of Buddhist, Christian, and SufiYogic practices, modern psychology, the differences, similarities, and interdependence among the various faiths.
