Quote of the Day: A Buddhism for Every Class

"During the Kamakura period, Zen received its warmest reception among the warrior class — the samurai. According to a popular saying of the time: 'Tendai is for the imperial court, Shingon for the nobility, Zen is for the warrior class, and Pure Land for the masses.'"

Heinrich Dumoulin, Zen Buddhism: A History (Japan), p. 31
