Kaneko Daiei


Kaneko Daiei

Kaneko Daiei (1881-1976) was a Japanese born son of a Shin Buddhist priest from Niigata Prefecture. He was a student Kiyozawa Manshi and had taught for several years at Otani University. In 1928 he was excommunicated from Jodo Shinshu for having charged the organization had become shrouded in materialism. A decade later his excommunication was overturned and he was welcomed back.

Kaneko authored many essays on Shin thought that are held in very high regard today, helping to sculpt modern day Shin philosophy. He was a good friend of Soga Ryojin (1875-1971), another student of Manshi who likewise taught at Otani University.
