PACIFIC SEMINAR - 21ST CENTURY

Spring Session

"The Benefits of a Life of Shinjin"= =

Guest Speaker:

Prof. Nobuhiro Fukagawa

Department of Shin Buddhist Studies, Faculty of Letters,
Ryukoku University - Kyoto,Japan
Resident MInister, Sainen-Ji Temple, Yamaguchi Prefecture

The title is intended to be a general reference to the "ten kinds of benefit realized in the
present life (by the person of shinjin)" (現生十種の益), the primary one being
the "entry into the ranks of the truly settled" (入正定聚). They are quite different
from the notion of seeking to obtain "worldly benefits" (現世利益).
Prof. Fukagawa's talks will discuss the meaning and significance
of the first two ideas, while contrasting them with the third.
