Buddhism, War, and Nationalism

This thesis examines the doctrinal grounds and different approaches to working out this ",new Buddhist tradition,", a startling contrast to the teachings of non-violence and compassion which have made Buddhism known as a religion of peace. In scores of articles as war approached in 1936-37, new monks searched and reinterpreted scripture, making controversial arguments for ideas like ",compassionate killing", which would justify participating in war.
