In order to suggest an alternative to methods of Shin
Buddhist-Christian dialogue that focus on doctrinal comparison, I will
discuss a number of analogous elements in Shinran’s delineation of the
Pure Land Buddhist path and Heidegger’s early lecture course
“Introduction to the Phenomenology of Religion,” which presents a
reading of the earliest letters of Paul. Noting the constellation of
similar approaches, concerns, and conceptual motifs found in Shinran
and Heidegger may help to articulate the significance of various
elements of Shinran’s delineation of the religious path, and also
identify a trajectory of thought that unifies those elements.
