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, the author emphasizes the beauty of the Kamakura temples and how some of them survived the intemperances of time and remained intact. Some were destroyed by earthquakes or fires, therefore today their ruins are the only indication of their existence.
