The Sino-Japanese reading of this phrase is konjaku, and it is from the Chinese-style reading that the collection is named. Since it is an anthology rather than a single tale, however, the longer title is more accurate. The collection emphasizes the path in which Buddhism takes to Japan in order to further understand what Buddhism means to Japan.

Firstly, Buddhism leaves India and becomes very popular in China. As many things have been borrowed from the Chinese, Buddhism then travels to Japan. Each move leads to a morphing of the basics of this religion so by that time it arrived in Japan, it became a new Buddhism for the Japanese. Contents Edit The subject-matter is largely drawn from Buddhist and secular folklore. The anthology contains no mythology , and references to Shinto -related themes are notably few.

The folkloric tales mostly depict encounters between human beings and the supernatural. The typical characters are drawn from Japanese society of the time — nobility, warriors, monks, scholars, doctors, peasant farmers, fishermen, merchants, prostitutes, bandits, beggars.

Their supernatural counterparts are oni and tengu. Date and authorship Edit The work is anonymous. So far no substantive evidence has emerged to decide the question, and no general consensus has formed.

The date of the work is also uncertain. From the events depicted in some of the tales it seems likely that it was written down at some point during the early half of the 12th century, after the year Designated as a National Treasure in , it was assembled by a Shinto priest named Tsuretane Suzuka in the Kamakura period — The manuscript was then brought to Kyoto University by a descendant who was a librarian at the university for donation and archiving.

The manuscript has been scanned and made available in digital format on the internet. By assigning human traits to the animals, and through the utilization of these anthropomorphic animals, the authorship was more effectively able to communicate the various motifs, which impart a variety of moral teachings. To be able to implement such a paradigm, the authorship would have utilized pre-conceived common traits which were attributable to specific animals.

The animals and their respective traits would have been common and implicit knowledge in ancient Japan, and therefore known ubiquitously. The types of tales in Konjaku which include the use of anthropomorphic animals can be broadly classified into categories, in which a particular moral is accentuated. Significance Edit Many of the tales which appear in the Konjaku are also found in other collections, such as ghost story collections.

All these tales, having passed into the common consciousness, have been retold many times over the succeeding centuries.

The religious aspect is important in leading the reader into a deeper understanding of Buddhism and what it means to the Japanese people. In these tales both the reward for faith and the punishment for sin will be immediate.

The secular aspect of these tales is that they can entertain an audience as well as provide enjoyment for an individual reader. Selected translations Edit Chinese Beijing bian yi she, ed. Jin xi wu yu. Da duan wen ku Di 1 ban ed. Beijing Shi: Xin xing chu ban she.
