Abstract

This paper is a study about the reason why Ryochu (_??__??_) wrote the Ketto Jushuin Gimonsho (_??__??__??__??__??__??__??__??_). Honen, Shoko (_??__??_), and subsequently Ryochu, throughout their lives held a relative, not an absolute, standpoint. The typical explanation of this standpoint is just a metaphor of two rivers and a white path (niga-byakudo _??__??__??__??_), and we must try to understand the three thoughts (sanjin _??__??_) through this metaphor.
