Research purpose of this paper
In this paper I talk in detail about the
difference between “the law of the
origin and the specialized law.”
Among them, the effect of “the law
of the origin” acts on everyone,
regardless of differences in nationality,
ethnicity, gender, age, wealth, academic
background, status, etc. It also works
regardless of religious differences.
The important point is the fact that
this paper is not written for the spread
What I am talking about is about the
law called “Buddha-Nature / the law of
the origin” that was born and awakened
in the Buddhism civilization, so that
it may be thought as it speaks for the
spread and introduction of Buddhism.
But that is not the case.
This paper is written to study the law
which Buddha preached as “General law”
academically and introduce it to the world.
And I write because I think that it will
help to contribute to the realization of
international peace and international
cooperation and the happiness and
prosperity of each individual.

Nature / the law of the origin as
“General law”. However, its name was
the Buddhist term “Buddha-Nature”.
This is because in this era — especially
in the pre-modern era — for those who
found the truth, there was no other
way of expression other than the
language of civilization and religion
used in the state to which they belong.
For example, if a Greek person discovers
a certain truth, that truth was expressed
in Greek which was strongly influenced
by Greek civilization and its religion.
If it is the era of Roman, it was
expressed in Latin. And in the days when
Christians were state religions — From
the Middle Ages of Europe to the Early
Modern Period — Even if the discovered
truth was a “general truth”, it was
expressed in Christian religious terms.
This situation does not change in
Buddhism, Islam, or any other religion.
in order to study the truths found by
these geniuses purely academically,
they have often been studied
objectively outside the framework
of civilization, religion and state.
Then, it was examined in detail
whether the truth is a truth that
applies only to a specific religion,
civilization, or nation, or whether
it is a truth that leads to the general
phenomena world and its
movement, etc. In addition, whether
it can be explained scientifically
was also an important verification
item. It was “Study of Religion” that
was born in this way, and other study
of Religious Sociology and
Such studies are still conducted at
research institutes of many prominent
universities in the United States,
where research on religious thought
and philosophy is carried out under
scientific thinking method.
The word “Buddha-nature (The law
of the origin)” in my paper is also for
the purpose of examining it as a
general truth outside the scope of
Buddhism, and it is the same as the
position of Study of Religion or
However, I sometimes draw Buddhist
doctrines and literature in my paper,
or talk about the history of Buddhism.
However, that is only for research.
Since “the law of the origin” was
born and awakened in the civilization
of Buddhism, it is necessary to dig
deeper and study the contents of the
law, the history of Buddhism, the life
of Buddha, and the teachings and
information that Buddha preached.
And it must be studied objectively and
used as a reference material. In addition,
there is also a case to do classify and
study the doctrines that Buddha preached.
That is different from Buddhism’s
“faith or missionizing issue.” Faith is a
matter of personal choice. Its choice is
entirely at the discretion of each
individual, which is different from the
main point of this paper. The purpose
of this paper is to study religious
next point is that many people of
good thoughts and religion have to
cooperate in order to realize
international peace and international
cooperation. In that case, when it
comes to dialogue between different
religions, it is true that there is a
“difference” in thought and doctrines
in each religion. However, I think it is
important to overcome it and talk
with each other for peace and
coordination of society, country, and
international society where each
Also, when it comes to dialogue
between religions in order to realize
international peace or international
cooperation, I think in particular the
dialogue with Christianity will be
Because Christianity has a history
of establishing the ethics and spirit
of Western civilization, and is one of
the great religions.
Christianity, has taken on the wing
of one side to establish today’s
Western civilization along with the
“western scientific spirit”, which
was originated in Greece and
developed after the Renaissance.
And it has become one of the spirit
pillars. In addition, I think that the role
that Christianity has played is large
in forming the foundation of today’s
that some of your family, relatives
and friends are Christians.
Also you may be Christians.
Speaking from the relationship with
“the law of the origin” that is
described in this paper, even if you
are a Christian, if you take the
prescribed actions that I have
told you, the power of the law of
the origin will be exerted and the
power of the goodness and good
deeds of the Christians will be
further expanded and strengthened.
In addition, even if you are not a
Christian, if you perform a prescribed
action (procedure), the law of the
origin will expand and strengthen
the power of your good deeds and
support your life. And that will have an
immeasurable impact on your society
and the international community.
