Beatrice Lane Suzuki † [+-]
Beatrice Lane Suzuki (1878-1939) was a very well informed and sensitive expositor of Mahāyāna Buddhism and the American wife of the well-known Zen Buddhist Suzuki Daisetsu. She lived in Japan for many years and came to know the leading temple centres of various Buddhist schools - especially in Kyōto and Kamakura - very well.

Description

In this chapter, Suzuki explains the origins of Mahāyāna Buddhism, especially as it expresses itself in the sects in Japan. Therefore, it is necessary to be familiar with the teaching of the Gate of the Saintly Path (Shōdōmon 聖道門) and the Gate of the Pure Land (Jōdomon 浄土門) which the author analyses thouroughly.
