Abstract

The same concern holds true for the gratuitous use of the expression "going beyond" for various concepts in the Shbgenz. For example, in the "Bendwa," where Dgen uses the term ichinyo , which Tanahashi renders as "going beyond" (vol. 1, p. 3), instead of choosing simpler options such as "oneness" or "unity." While can indeed be understood as a transcendental concept, this interpretation is highly debatable. A literal choice would, in my eyes, have been more appropriate. The overuse of "going beyond" is also apparent in the "Genjkan," "Gybutsu igii," and "Shoji" fascicles, where Dgen writes on the important concepts of fush and fumetsu . In all these cases, Treasury of the True Dharma Eye renders the negative terminology via the positive, in the form of "going beyond birth" and "going beyond death." This is especially intriguing in light of the original meaning of fu being a negation -- which only in a much broader context could be seen as a transcendental designation. The same is true for the term mushin as it appears in the "Raihai tokuzui," which Tanahashi translates as "beyond heart" (vol. 1, p. 73).
