More than thirteen centuries of clergy, laity, and social conditions intera cted to mold Japan's Buddhism. Today's resulting characteristics, which dis tinguish it from its mainland sources, include a proliferation of independe nt sects, emphasis on religion for lay members, and de-emphasis of clerical codes. The twenty main biographies and seventy-five sketches presented in this book reveal both the individual and social aspects of Buddhist evoluti on and in Japan, spanning from the sixth through twentieth centuries. They cover the many separate interchanges that brought Buddhist texts and practi ces from Korea and China as well as the innovations that arose in Japan.
