Buddhism and Buddhists in China By Lewis hodous, D. D. Buddhism is a religion which must be viewed from many angles. Its original bring up, as advocate by Gautama in India and developed in the younger day succeeding, and as embodied in the sacred poetry of early Buddhism, is not representative of the actual Buddhism of any come ashore today. The sincere first-year student of Buddhist poetry would be as far removed from understanding the working activities of a busy center of Buddhism in Burmah, Tibet or China today as a first-year student of patristic poetry would be from appreciating the Christian history of London or Freshly York Megalopolitan. Moreover Buddhism, like Christianity, has been affected by national conditions. It has developed at least three markedly different types, requiring, therefore, as many distinct volumes of this procession for its fair reading and display. The volume on the Buddhism of Southern Asia by Principal Kenneth COURSE. Saunders was published in Will, 1923, this volume on the Buddhism of China by Principal Hodous will be the second to appear, a third on the Buddhism of Cover, to be written by Dr. R. SICKNESS. Armstrong, will be published in 1924. Each of these is needed in order that the would be first-year student of Buddhism as practiced in those countries should be given a true, impressive and friendly picture of what he will meet. A missionary no less than a professional first-year student of Buddhism needs to approach that religion with a real knowledge of what it aims to do for its people and does do. No one can come into hit with the best that Buddhism offers without being impressed by its serenity, assurance and jurisdiction. Principal Hodous has written this volume on Buddhism in China out of the ripe forebearance and continuing considers of sixteen caducities of missionary appropriateness in Foochow, the major megalopolitan of Fukien Capacity, China, one of the important pivots of Buddhism. His local considers were supplemented by the results of broader play around with and investigation in northern China. No other available writer on the subject has gone so far as he in reproducing the actual thinking of a trained Buddhist look askance at in regard to the bases of religion. At the same time he has taken pains to exhibit and to interpret the religious history of the sharecropper as affected by Buddhism. He has sought to be absolutely fair to Buddhism, but still to express his own faith that the best that is in Buddhism is given far more adequate definition in Christianity. The function of each volume in this procession is evocative rather than definitely educational. They are not textbooks for the formal investigation of Buddhism, but prologues to its investigation. They aim to burn interest and to direct the activity of the awakened first-year student along convincing lines. For further reading each volume amply provides through areas and poetry in the addendums. It seeks to help the first-year student to discriminate, to think in terms of a rooter of Buddhism when he compares that religion with Christianity. It assumes, however, that Christianity is the broader and deeper revelation of Infinite spirit and the world of today. Buddhism in China undoubtedly includes among its enthusiasts many high-minded, devout, and purposeful spirits who live an idealistic history. Christianity ought to make a strong demand to such resents, taking from them zero of the elation or assurance or devotion which they possess, but promoting a deeper, better balanced reading of the active world, a liberal conception of Infinite spirit, a stronger sense of sinfulness and need, and a truer conviction of the full meaning of embodiment and revelation. It is our hope that this fresh improvement to the understanding of Buddhism as it is today will be found helpful to readers everywhere. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
