Pruning the Bodhi Tree
THE STORM OVER CRITICAL BUDDHISM
Honolulu: University of Hawai'i Press, 1997. $45 cloth / $22.95 paper
Zen is not Buddhism. Buddha-nature is not Buddhism. Nor is original enlightenment or the non-duality of the Vimalakirti Sutra or the philosophy of the Kyoto school. For Hakamaya Noriaki and Matsumoto Shirō, these and many other elements of the Buddhist tradition have diluted the critical discrimination of the truth that is the heart of Buddhist realization and social justice.
"I am convinced that these essays on the critique of hongaku shisō will have a revolutionary impact on contemporary thought in general and Buddhist studies in particular.."
— Kamata Shigeo, University of Tokyo
"The appearance of this volume will introduce Western readers to issues important not only in Japan, but wherever Buddhism is taught and practiced."
— John P. Keenan, Middlebury College

Absolute Delusion, Perfect Buddhahood
THE RISE AND FALL OF A CHINESE HERESY
Honolulu: University of Hawai'i Press, 2001. xvii+333 pages. $45 cloth / $22.95 paper
In spite of the common view of Buddhism as non-dogmatic and tolerant, the historical record preserves many examples of Buddhist thinkers and movements that were banned as heretical or subversive. The San-chieh (Three Levels) was a popular and influential Chinese Buddhist movement during the Sui and T'ang periods. Absolute Delusion, Perfect Buddhahood uses manuscripts discovered at Tun-huang to examine the doctrine and institutional practices of this movement in the larger context of Mahayana doctrine and practice. By viewing San-chieh in the context of Mahayana Buddhism, Hubbard reveals it to be far from heretical and thereby raises important questions about orthodoxy and canon in Buddhism. He shows that many of the hallmark ideas and practices of Chinese Buddhism find an early and unique expression in the San-chieh texts.
