A scholarly study of the evolution of Mahayana Buddhism in Japan. The author, Arthur Lloyd, says in the preface to the edition: I can only plead for my book that it is the work of a pioneer, and every pioneer knows that his labours must necessarily be crude and imperfect. I foresee all the strictures that criticism will pass upon my labours, and shall be more than content if what I have written stimulates others to further research. More should have been said about the lives and teachings of Honen, Shinran, and other leaders of the Jodo or Pure Land sects.
Book Description: "The third book of Lafcadio Hearn's Japanese period, Gleanings in Buddha-Fields is a volume of philosophical essays and sketches inspired by the teachings of Buddha. Through a series of loosely connected essays, the author offers readers a wealth of insights into Japanese life, art and religion. When the book was first published in 1897, it attracted the attention of The New York Times: "It is only Mr. Hearn who has made us understand something of the Japanese way of looking at life and things, something of that religion which is the very soul and substance of Japanese existence, thought, and action." Today's readers are sure to recognize the elegance and depth of thought which have made the work a classic."
