Chen-Yen (Buddhism) (Chinese Buddhism, Buddhism, ... Associated Concepts (hierarchy name))

 

Note: School of Tantric Buddhism in China. Its name is derived from the Indian Sanskrit word "mantra" meaning 'mystical world.The work of Shubhakarasimha brought about Chen-Yen in China in 716 CE and it was expanded by others such as Amoghavajra (705-774). Although it gained imperial favor for a time, it never became extremely popular in China. Instead, it flourished in Japan after Kukai brought back some Chen-Yen rituals and texts after his 804 trip to China; Kukai was responsible for founding the Shingon school of Chen-Yen in his native Japan. Chen-Yen received an infusion of life from Tibet during the Yuan dynasty (1279-1368) but the surviving school is as much Tibetan as it is Chinese and the intrinsic quality of Chen-Yen has declined.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Stroming van het tantrisch boeddhisme in China. De naam is afgeleid van het woord 'mantra' in het Indiase Sanskriet, dat 'mystieke wereld' betekent. Tsjen-Jen kwam via het werk van Shubhakarasimha in China terecht in 716 n. Chr. en werd vervolgens verder verspreid door onder meer Amoghavajra (705-774). De stroming was een tijdlang in zwang aan het keizerlijke hof, maar werd nooit bijzonder populair in China. De stroming maakte wel een bloeiperiode door in Japan nadat Kukai een aantal Tsjen-Jen-rituelen en -teksten meenam van een reis naar China in 804; Kukai richtte de Sjingon-stroming van Tsjen-Jen op in zijn vaderland Japan. Tsjen-Jen maakte een opleving door in Tibet gedurende de Yuan-dynastie (1279-1368), maar de stroming die vandaag de dag nog actief is, is net zozeer Tibetaans als Chinees en de intrinsieke kwaliteit van Tsjen-Jen is afgenomen. 
Spanish ..... El término que deriva de la palabra sánscrita india mantra, y que significa "mundo místico", se refiere a la escuela de budismo tántrico en China. La obra de Shubhakarasimha hizo surgir el Chen-Yen en China en 716 d.C y fue expandido por otros como Amoghavajra (705-774). Aunque ganó el favor imperial por un tiempo, nunca fue extremadamente popular en China. En cambio, floreció en Japón después que Kukai trajo de vuelta algunos rituales y textos Chen-Yen después de su viaje en 804;viajó a China; Kukai fue responsable de fundar la escuela de Shingon de Chen-Yen en su nativo Japón.recive una inyección de vida desde el Tibet durante la Dinastía Yuan (1279-1368) pero la escuela tibetana que sobrevivio era tan tibetana como china, pero la cualidade intrinseca de Chen- Yen habían declinado.
