Il riflesso di sé e dell’altro
Una traduzione source-oriented del Baojing sanmei 寶鏡三昧
This paper focuses on the translation of the Baojing sanmei (The jewel mirror samādhi) [T nr. 1986b] (1761), a liturgical chant of the Zen Soto Buddhist school. Attributed to the Dongshan Liangjie (807-69) (Jap. Tōzan Ryōkai), the text is related to the Chan re-elaboration of Huayan themes. The introductory part includes eight sections illustrating the context of formulation, the canonical sources, the genre, the function, the exegetical tradition, the doctrinal framework, the themes and the linguistic notes. Attention is paid to highlighting the textual precedents in the Zutang ji (Collection from the Patriarchs’ Hall) [B nr. 144].
