This is book number 23 in the Asian Thought and Culture series.


Simplicity: A Distinctive Quality of Japanese Spirituality focuses on simplicity as a distinctive mark of Japanese religious thought and practice. It articulates this quality as an essential attribute of Japan's ancient age, as a salient feature of its Buddhist medieval phase, and as a re-affirmed native endowment in the Tokugawa, the period of critical reflection prior to Japan's extensive engagement with the West. This work utilizes specialized monographs and primary sources to offer the western reader a refined category of appreciation for the Japanese sense of the sacred.
