Book: Listening to Shin Buddhism

Chapter: The concept of the Pure Land in the Teaching of Nāgārjuna (1966)

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.20366


A profundity is implied in Yamaguchi Susumu’s article on the concept of the Pure Land in the teaching of Nāgārjuna. Here we learn that Shin Buddhist conceptions, despite what for some may be their apparent simplicity, bear an intimate relationship to the notion of emptiness (śūnyatā ) which characterizes all Mahāyāna teaching.
