A Japanese translation of D.T.Suzuki's English article discussing Shinran's pure land doctrine of other powers. Zen as a doctrine of self-reliance, seeking enlightenment by one's own power. Pure Land Buddhism as the doctrine of other forces to seek the attainment of Buddhahood by relying on the Buddha's compassion. The two teachings were different ways to attainment of Buddhahood. The pure land doctrine of transversal power, which was developed by Shinran, teaches that ordinary people have realized the present satori as the original Buddhist path by giving up their own discrimination, directing themselves to the Buddha's compassion, and opening the way to live surrounded by the Dharma itself. The translator, a disciple of the last years of D.T.Suzuki's life, translates the text based on D.T.Suzuki's understanding of Shin Buddhism. Half of the articles in the book are translated into Japanese for the first time!
