Joint Buddhist seminar sponsored by Higashi Honganji and Honpa Hongwanji:
Shakyamuni Buddha and Shinran:
Buddhism as the Teaching of Self-Examination
with Rev. Dr. Nobuo Haneda, Maida Center of Buddhism
Shakyamuni (ca. 469-380 BC), the founder of Buddhism and Shinran (1173-1262) lived in their respective social and religious environments. Their teachings seem different, i.e., they used different terminology and expressions in their teaching. Some Buddhist scholars, in fact, claim that Shinran’s teachings are historical deviation from the original teachings of Shakyamuni. I, however, believe that their teachings are basically the same; they focused on one issue of self-examination.
