さて、お届けしてまいりました「いざ鎌倉編ふたたび」。
本日が最終回でございます m(_ _)m

で、やってきたのは「建長寺」
あいかわらず立派なお寺さんデスね~^^

ワタシは特にココが好きでして。。。朽ちかけた木の色合いが、昔住んでた実家を思い出すんです(^-^)/

建長寺にある建造物は、どれも絵になって、あまりの荘厳さに、前回のブログ記事ではほとんど画像ばかりでした。。。

・・・で、今回ネタ切れ(笑)

そういえば鎌倉にあるお寺って、「禅寺」が多いですよね~。やっぱり「禅」の思想がサムライたちの嗜好に合ったんでしょうかね~。

ではいきなりですが、いつものやつを(←今日は早いねっ!?・笑)
本日は「日本の禅宗」で、いってみましょう!

The schools of Zen that currently exist in Japan are the Soutou (曹洞), Rinzai (臨済), and Oubaku (黄檗). Of these, Soutou is the largest and oubaku the smallest. Rinzai is itself divided into several subschools based on temple affiliation, including Myoshin-ji, Nanzen-ji, Tenryu-ji, Daitoku-ji, and Tofuku-ji.

In the year 1410 a Zen Buddhist monk from Nanzen-ji, a large temple complex in the Japanese capital of Kyoto, wrote out a landscape poem and had a painting done of the scene described by the poem. Then, following the prevailing custom of his day, he gathered responses to the images by asking prominent fellow monks and government officials to inscribe it, thereby creating a shigajiku poem and painting scroll. Such scrolls emerged as a preeminent form of elite Japanese culture in the last two decades of the fourteenth century, a golden age in the phenomenon now known as Japanese Zen culture.

Zen was not introduced as a separate school until the 12th century, when Myouan Eisai traveled to China and returned to establish a Linji lineage, which is known in Japan as Rinzai. Decades later, Nanpo Shoumyou (南浦紹明) (1235–1308) also studied Linji teachings in China before founding the Japanese Otokan lineage, the most influential branch of Rinzai. In 1215, Dougen, a younger contemporary of Eisai's, journeyed to China himself, where he became a disciple of the Caodong master Tiantong Rujing. After his return, Dougen established the Soutou school, the Japanese branch of Caodong. The oubaku lineage was introduced in the 17th century by Ingen, a Chinese monk. Ingen had been a member of the Linji school, the Chinese equivalent of Rinzai, which had developed separately from the Japanese branch for hundreds of years. Thus, when Ingen journeyed to Japan following the fall of the Ming Dynasty to the Manchus, his teachings were seen as a separate school. The oubaku school was named for Mount oubaku (黄檗山), which had been Ingen's home in China.

・・・という感じでしょうか。
日本には中国から伝わってきたんですね~^^

では、その「禅」を中国に伝えたのは、誰でしょう?(←いきなりクイズかよっ!)

・・・答えは「達磨(だるま)」さん。
というわけで、その「達磨さん(=Bodhidharma)」についても少々 m(_ _)m

Bodhidharma was a Buddhist monk who lived during the 5th/6th century and is traditionally credited as the transmitter of Zen to China.

Little contemporary biographical information on Bodhidharma is extant, and subsequent accounts became layered with legend, but most accounts agree that he was from the southern region of India, born as a prince to a royal family. Bodhidharma left his kingdom after becoming a Buddhist monk and traveled through Southeast Asia into Southern China and subsequently relocated northwards. The accounts differ on the date of his arrival, with one early account claiming that he arrived during the Liú Sòng Dynasty (420–479) and later accounts dating his arrival to the Liáng Dynasty (502–557). Bodhidharma was primarily active in the lands of the Northern Wèi Dynasty (386–534). Modern scholarship dates him to about the early 5th century.

Throughout Buddhist art, Bodhidharma is depicted as a rather ill-tempered, profusely bearded and wide-eyed barbarian. He is described as "The Blue-Eyed Barbarian" 藍眼睛的野人 in Chinese texts.

・・・ですねっと。

さて、お楽しみの「唐門」を見て、おいとましましょうかね(^-^)
