 Dōgen's Interpretations of This Lotus Sutra Story

(p.67) 4 Dōgen's Interpretations of This Lotus Sutra Story
Visions of Awakening Space and Time

Taigen Dan Leighton (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter gives a close reading of a range of references throughout Dōgen's writings on Lotus Sutra Chapters 15 and 16, organized in terms of earth, space, and time. It also looks in to how Dōgen uses these citations as practice encouragements for his students. These commentaries reveal Dōgen's strong lifetime allegiance to the Lotus Sutra text, and also his approach to awakening as a function of the nature of reality, intimately connected with the dynamic support of the earth, space itself, and a multidimensional view of the movements of time.

Keywords:   Dōgen, Lotus Sutra, earth, space, time
