Jātaka, Nihon ryōiki, and Girei... Oh my!

Postby Karma Jinpa » Mon May 19, 2014 1:11 am

Thanks to the Center for Japanese Studies Publications, The Three Jewels : a study and translation of Minamoto Tamenori's Sanbōe by Edward B. Kamens is now available in its entirety online. I've loved Kamens' translation of the the Mahāsattva Jātaka for quite a while now, but it wasn't until recently that I discovered the treasure trove of a tome that it's part of...

The full book in PDF format: http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/p/pod/dod-idx/three-jewels-a-study-and-translation-of-minamoto-tamenoris.pdf?c=cjs;idno=1077715.0001.001

From the Introduction:
"The Sutras, Tantras, and Philosophical Scriptures are great in number. However life is short, and intelligence is limited, so it's hard to cover them completely. You may know a lot, but if you don't put it into practice, it's like dying of thirst on the shore of a great lake. Likewise, it happens that a common corpse is found in the bed of a great scholar." ~ Karma Chagme
