Diskurs zur Klärung des Weges: Das Bendōwa von Dōgen


Steineck, Raji C (2021). Diskurs zur Klärung des Weges: Das Bendōwa von Dōgen. Bunron : Zeitschrift für literaturwissenschaftliche Japanforschung, 8(2021):168-209.

Abstract

Was bedeutet das protestantische Motto »zurück zu den Quellen« eigentlich für die Möglichkeit einer Open-Source-Theologie? Ist der Quellcode der Theologie, z. B. der biblische Kanon, offen, zugänglich, veränderbar?
//
In his first extensive doctrinal exposition, the “Discourse on Negotiating the Way” (Bendōwa), Dōgen (1200–1253) explained the virtues of seated meditation in light of his idea of the unity of practice and realization and defended it against possible objections. The text was written while he was living in relative obscurity on the grounds of a dilapidated monastery south of the capital Kyōto. It not only contains seminal elements of his later teachings, but also reveals how Dōgen sought to position himself within the Buddhist tradition. His claim to represent the single true understanding of the Buddha Way stands in a marked contrast both to his actual position at the time and the later identification of Dōgen as the founder of the Japanese Sōtō Line of Zen Buddhism. The text is presented with extensive annotation and comparing the final version with an earlier draft preserved at Shōbō-ji.
