Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Shinbutsu-sh g literally "syncretism of kami and buddhas" is the syncretism of Buddhism and kami worship which was Japan's religion until the Meiji period. When Buddhism was introduced through China in the late Asuka period rather than discard the old belief system the Japanese tried to reconcile it with the new, assuming both were true. As a consequence, Buddhist temples were attached to local kami shrines and vice versa and devoted to both kami and Buddha.show more
