1666 Buddha Origin Japanese Buddhism Manuscript Shakamuni Hassou Monogatari 5v
[Osaka] Shinsaibashi Dori (Namihana): Heisuke Shioya, 1666. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Buddhism originated in Northern India, or present-day Nepal where the historical Buddha (Prince Siddhartha, Gautama Buddha), was born and lived. When Buddhism arrived in Japan, Siddhartha became known in Japan as Shaka or Shakamuni. Stories of Shakamuni's life were commonoly told through selecting eight events to represent his life. This 'Story of the Eight Phases of Sakyamuni,' was aimed at the general populace, using these "eight phases" as a device to teach the important points of Shakamuni's life.
