Abstract
The meticulous commentary of the Dámóduōluó chánjīng 達摩多羅禪經 (T 15 no. 618) by Tōrei Enji constitutes one of the few resources for the study of this early meditation treatise in seventeen fascicles. It goes further than the work of Fórì Qìsōng 佛日契嵩 (1007–1072) in its scrutiny of textual sources but tends to agree with Fórì regarding the confusing attribution of this text to Bodhidharma.
Description
Tōrei gave a series of teachings on the Damoduoluo chanjing in 1777, in 1781, and in 1786. The first publication of his commentary is dated 1784 (Tenmei 天明 4) but the woodblocks for this first edition were burned in the 1788 fire that devastated Kyoto. The text provided here in PDF is based on the 1894 (Meiji 明治 27) edition, published in Tokyo by Keisei Shoin 經世書院. It includes six volumes, with a total of 948 pages. The preface by Kōgaku Sōen 洪嶽宗演・洪岳宗演—known as Shaku Sōen 釋宗演・釈宗演 (1860–1919) while alive—indicates the importance given to this text even at the end of the nineteenth century. It is hoped that making this resource available to the scholarly community will stimulate research on this area.
