Writings of Nichiren Shonin: Doctrine 3
Author: Nichiren Shonin; Editor: Kyotsu Hori; Sakashita, Jay;
This volume, the eleventh project of the English Translation Committee of the Nichiren-shu Overseas Propagation Promotion Association (NOPPA), constitutes all seventeen writings of Buddhist reformer Nichiren Shonin (1222–1282) included in the Nichiren Shonin Zenshu (Complete Writings of Nichiren Shonin), Volume III: Theology 3, published in Tokyo in 1994. The Nichiren Shonin Zenshu is a modern Japanese version of Nichiren’s original writings, translated and edited with annotations by modern scholars of Nichiren Buddhism. Despite its all-inclusive titles, the Zenshu is highly selective in that it takes into account only writings considered bibliographically authentic (i.e., attested to by original manuscripts). Among such texts, those included in the Showa Teihon Nichiren Shonin Ibun (Writings of Nichiren Shonin Standardized in the Showa Period), compiled by the Rissho Daigaku Nichiren Kyogaku Kenkyu-jo (Center for the Study of Nichiren Buddhism), are considered the most authoritative, and they provide the basic texts for this volume.
