About The Book

Buddhism does not recognize a concept of the existence of God (Theos) such as found in Christianity, but here Theos is not used to refer only to an absolute deity like the Christian god. By "theology," the author means the systematic delineation of the confrontation with the condition of the times while carrying on the engagement between the divine and oneself.

Buddhism has spread widely down to the present and it manifests great diversity, in such forms as the neo-Buddhism of India, the Newar Buddhism of the Kathmandu basin, the Theravada Buddhism of Southeast Asia, Japanese Buddhism, and so on. But although Buddhism has taken various forms in different historical and cultural contexts, this does not necessarily mean that the construction of a "Buddhist theology" is insurmountably difficult. "Buddhist theological research" is a matter of researchers confronting contemporary conditions while based on Buddhist traditions belonging to diverse social and cultural conditions. In this way, a theology addressing the historical and cultural context will be born.

Hence, the "Buddhist theological research" is rooted in the Buddhist traditions and the teachings of Tibetan and Indian Buddhism. This background is reflected in the basic understanding of such concepts as emptiness and dependent origination in the present book.
