The Creed of Half Japan

Cover of book The Creed of Half Japan
Categories: Nonfiction

A scholarly study of the evolution of Mahayana Buddhism in Japan. The author, Arthur Lloyd, says in the preface to the edition: I can only plead for my book that it is the work of a pioneer, and every


pioneer knows that his labours must necessarily be crude and imperfect. I foresee all the strictures that criticism will pass upon my labours, and shall be more than content if what I have written stimulates others to further research. More should have been said about the lives and teachings of Honen, Shinran, and other leaders of the Jodo or Pure Land sects.
