     View Summary

    The objective of this research project is to take up for consideration the important scriptures and treatises that were composed in India, extract the definitions (or rules about usage) of terms used in those works, and, as well as comparing these, establish standard tranalations in both Japanese and English. The research was executed by the effective use of XML (Extensive Markup Language).The three years' term of this research from 2016 to 2018 has seen its outcome opened to public in five books as well as in the Website (http://www.l.u-tokyo.ac.jp/~b_kosha/start_index.html). Among those results is The Seventy-five Elements (dharma) of Sarvastivada in the Abhidharmakosabhasya and Related Works which was published in English in 2018

  • A Comprehensive Study of Sthiramati's Thought

    Project Year :

    2013.04
    -
    2017.03
     

     View Summary

    This study was undertaken because discrepancies can be found between traditional accounts of Sthiramati, accepted as conventional wisdom in Buddhist studies, and the information obtained from his Sanskrit commentaries, and it started out from the premise that there may have been more than one Sthiramati. The following points were ascertained. (1) The Sanskrit commentaries on the Madhyantavibhaga, etc., attributed to Sthiramati were written by the same person, who differs, however, from the author of the commentary on the Mahayanasutralamkara surviving in Tibetan translation. (2) Sthiramati’s ideas as presented in traditional doctrine cannot be found in his Sanskrit commentaries. (3) The account of Sthiramati given in modern Buddhist studies represents an erroneous view that arose because the Sthiramati mentioned in copper-plate inscriptions from Valabhi was identified with Jianhui mentioned in the Da Tang xiyuji, but this Sthiramati differs from both of the above commentator

  • A Synthetic Study of Buddhist Ritual: Its formation and Development

    Project Year :

    2011.11
    -
    2016.03
     

     View Summary

    This research project focuses upon the Buddhist ritual, especially its formation, development and transformation in the history of Buddhism in Asian countries. The research was carried out in the style of the interdisciplinary joint project consisting of several researchers of various fields: such as Indology, Buddhist studies, history, anthropology, art history, architecture, religious studies and so on. In order to realize the interdisciplinary research we set up five frameworks, i. e. kingship, representation, space, technique and human body. One of the most significant results of the project is the proceedings of the symposium about consecration ritual (abhiseka). This publication has enabled to display the general picture of this ritual all over Asian countries and to lead to the new horizon of ritual studies. As a concluding project we organized an international symposium about the relationship between rituals and the visual imagery

  • The Creation of Bauddhakosa: A Treasury of Buddhist Terms and Illustrative Sentences

    Project Year :

    2016.03
     

     View Summary

    During the five-year term of this project from 2011 to 2016, the research was executed by the effective use of XML (Extensible Markup Language). The project applies the method, which was previously established by our related project on the analysis of Sarvastivada's Seventy-five dharmas, to the other two fields, namely the corresponding dharma-systems of both Early Buddhism and Yogacara scool.The above research brought to us the following two books: The One Hundred Elements (dharma) of Yogacara in the Abhidharmasamuccaya and Pancaskandhaka, Bauddhakosa II, ed. by Akira Saito et al and Pali Terms Corresponding to the Seventy-five Elements (dharma) up to Buddhaghosa, Bauddhakosa III, ed. by Fumio Enomoto et al, both of which were published from Tokyo: Sankibo Press, 2014. Besides, Those contents, along with its more detailed data, are now widely opened in the Home-page of this project (http://www.l.u-tokyo.ac.jp/~b_kosha/html/preface_1.html)

  • A Comprehensive Research of Meditation and Visualization through Digital Restoration

    Project Year :

    2012.04
    -
    2015.03
     

     View Summary

    (1) The paintings on the rear wall of Toyok Cave 20 are poorly preserved, but by referring to fragments kept in the State Hermitage Museum and a record of the German Turfan expedition, I have restored significant portions. In addition, through infrared photography and image processing, I have made it possible to observe to a certain extent paintings and inscriptions, which are covered with mud, on the side wall of that cave.(2) Through digital processing and (somewhat hypothetical) restoration, I have made the faded long inscription on the rear wall of Qumtura Cave 75 partly legible. By comparing its content with the paintings on the same wall, I have shown that they are tied to Esoteric visualization.(3) Through infrared photography and image processing, I have clarified images of a Guanijng bianxiang (MG. 17669) kept in the Guimet Museum. It turns out that this Guanjing bianxiang is closely tied to another Guanjing bianxiang (Дx. 316) stored in the State Hermitage Museum

     View Summary

    本年度の主たる成果は,以下の二点である.(1) 『観仏三昧海経』 (『海経』)の中心的テーマである「観仏」の修行は,仏像を用いた観想行であったと考えられるが,このような行法を明確に説くインド文献が殆ど確認できないことが,従来の観仏経典研究の上での大きなネックであった.ところが,『大宝積経』中に編入されている「弥勤師子吼経」(「師子吼経」)には,『海経』の記述と極めて類似した観仏行が説かれている.ここで,「師子吼経」のインド成立には疑問の余地がなく,かつ本経が『海経』成立段階で漢訳されていないことは重要である.『海経』が疑経であったことを否定するのは難しいので,以上の事実は,恐らくは『海経』が中央アジアで成立したということを示唆するであろうまた,「師子吼経」の背後にはさらに『維摩経』があったものと思われ, 『維摩経』にみられるような極めて哲学的な「仏を見る」思想が,「弥靭師子吼経」を経て『海経』に見られる極めて視覚的な行へと変化していったことが伺われるのである.(2) 『海経』にみられる陰馬蔵相をめぐる四つの説話は,極めて特異なものであり,他の仏典に類例を見ないものである.これらの説話には,明らかにインド・シヴァ派のリンガ崇拝の影響が認められるが,リンガ崇拝が中国では殆ど知られていなかったことは,上述の「師子吼経」の場合と同様の問題をはらむものであり,示唆的である.さらにまた,『海経』における陰馬蔵の記述には,リンガのイメージとナーガのイメージとの混淆が見られること,中央アジアの美術表現からの影響が伺われること,漢訳仏典にみられる要素の不用意な導入が認められること,天山地域に確認される生殖器崇拝が,これらの説話の背景となっていた可能性があることなどを指摘した.これらの諸点は,『海経』が中央アジアの多文化混在状況の中から生み出されてきたものであるとする私の仮説を支持するであろう

  • On the Development of Buddhist Visualization in Central Asia: A Comparative Study of Art and Text

     View Summary

    1. Visionary consecration is a common image in Buddhist visualization texts. This is a mystical experience in which the meditator encounters various deities (like Brahma and Indra) in his vision and is consecrated by them. In this experience, the liquid sprinkled by these deities enters the head of the practitioner and fills his body. I believe this image originally came from the legend that the Buddha was consecrated by Brahma and Indra just after his birth. This originally legendary motif was at some point combined with the old meditative image of gratification and happiness filling the body like water, and another legendary motif of rays of light entering the head of the Buddha. Thus, the alleged experience of the Buddha was internalized and became something that the meditator could experience by himself.2. In my doctoral dissertation, I argued that the Guanfo sanmei hai jing was an apocryphal text compiled in the Turfan area in the fifth century based on prior Chinese texts. This time I tried to demonstrate the availability of those source texts in the Turfan area in that period by pointing out the existence of early manuscripts of the relevant texts found there.3. Guanjing bianxiang are paintings supposedly based on the Amitayus Visualization Sutra. However, relatively late pieces of Guanjing bianxiang in Dunhuang substantially deviate from the Amitayus Visualization Sutra. Namely, these paintings contain many objects of visualization not mentioned in the sutra, and the arrangement of the items of visualization does not agree with the system of the sutra, either. I believe both of these phenomena were caused by the misunderstanding of previous paintings of the same motif on the part of the painters. In other words, the painters based their works on their own artistic traditions and were not directly guided by any textual tradition

  • A Study of Buddhist Visualization in Central Asia Utilizing Digital Image Restoration Technology

     View Summary

    Pictures were taken in a few caves at Toyok, Bezeklik, and Baixihar(in the Turfan area) and at Qizil, Qumtura, and Subashi(in the Kucha area). These images have been digitally processed in order to obtain clearer images of the faded paintings and inscriptions in these caves. Some illegible inscriptions have already become legible.In addition, various aspects of visualization were examined. In particular, there has been progress in the ongoing research of the transformation tableaux based on the Amitayus Visualization Sutra

  • 実践的観点からみたアーラヤ識説の総合的研究

    2016  

     View Summary

     本研究の眼目は,禅定実践における身心相関の重要性に着目し,アーラヤ識をその身心相関の要となるものとしてとらえ直すことにある.アーラヤ識は種子説と不可分であるから,その双方に目を配りつつ研究を進めた. アーラヤ識そのものに焦点をあてたものが,9月に日本仏教学会で行った発表であって,禅定の実践における身心の転換がアーラヤ識の転換と連関していることを論じた。 一方,種子説に焦点をあてたのが,5月に大正大学でおこなった発表と,11月にU.C. Berkeleyで行った発表である.前者では,種子をめぐる異時因果と同時因果の問題を考察し,後者では,種子説の発展において概念構想が果たした役割について検討した.&nbsp;

  • 『瑜伽師地論』「本地分」と「摂決択分」の文献学的比較研究

    2015  

     View Summary

     今回は『瑜伽師地論』の「本地分」から「摂決択分」に至る形成過程のなかで、どのようにして瑜伽行派固有の概念である「アーラヤ識説」が導入されたかに焦点を絞って研究を進めた。 シュミットハウゼン教授の大著Ālayavijñānaにおいて、教授は『瑜伽師地論』「本地分」の「三摩呬多地」の滅尽定に関する一節を、アーラヤ識説導入の本来の文脈を示す「最初の一節」として重視するのであるが、私は「摂決択分」冒頭のアーラヤ識説存在の八論証、特にその第一、第六、第八論証を重視して、そこで述べられるアーラヤ識による身体維持の問題と身体的感受の問題が、アーラヤ識説導入の背後にあったのではないかと考えている。私見によれば、アーラヤ識説は身心双方の基盤としてそれ等双方の状態と密接な相関関係にあり、従って禅定の実践によって身心が麁重から軽安の状態に転換するとき、その転換はアーラヤ識自体の転換に支えられているのである。
