Dal retro di copertina:
In The Buddhist Goddess Marishiten , David A. Hall provides an in-depth exploration
of the Buddhist cult of the warrior goddess M?r?c?; its evolution in India, China,
and Japan; its texts and their audience; its rituals; and, finally, its efficacy as
experienced by the Japanese warrior class--the bushi or samurai.
In examining the psychological effects of these rituals on the Japanese warrior this
volume moves beyond a narrowly focused examination of a religious cult. David
A. Hall convincingly explains how these rituals aimed at preparing the warrior for
combat and acted as an antidote for the toxicity of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
(PTSD) when the warrior returned from the battlefield.
Dr. David A. Hall has trained in Japanese martial arts for over forty-five years.
Here, in addition to his martial arts experience, he draws on his military, academic,
and religious expertise to explore aspects of Japanese combative culture previously
inaccessible to most people.
Trained as a Navy Hospital Corpsman, David Hall was attached to Third Marine
Division during the Vietnam War Era. He was later ordained as a Tendai Buddhist
priest (1978), and integrated his religious training in Japan with graduate research
at U.C. Berkeley, earning a doctorate in Buddhist Studies with a related field in
Military history in 1990.
Dr. Hall continues to teach and train in classical Japanese martial arts. He is
currently a professor and Director of CyberWatch at Montgomery College,
