Buddhism is Realism

Up to this time, Buddhism has been understood as a kind of idealism, and sometimes it has been understood a kind of nihilism. But reading a Japanese Buddhist monk Master Dogen , or an Indian Buddhist monk Master Nagarjuna's works, they clearly indicate that Buddhism is just realism. Therfore if we do not understand Buddhism on the basis of realism, Buddhism can never be understood for ever.

Opening Dogen Sangha Blog

My name is Gudo Wafu Nishijima, a Buddist Monk, who is 86 years old, and recently because of my old age, I finished my Buddhist lectures, which were held at many places for many years, and so I decided to open Dogen Sangha Blog, to express the Buddhist thought. It might be very short sentences, but I would like to continue it as far as possible almot every day.
