In this book, Mark Blum offers a critical look at the thought and impact of the late 13th-century Buddhist historian Gyonen (1240-1321) and the emergent Pure Land school of Buddhism founded by Honen (1133-1212). Blum also provides a clear and fully annotated translation of Gyonen's only surviving Pure Land text, the Jodo homon genrusho. This text, the first hitory of Pure Land Buddhism, documents the transmission and philosophical evolution of this school from India to China to Japan. It is an unparalleled record of the remarkable rise of Pure Land Buddhism as a dominant religious force during the Kamakura period (1185-1333).
