 I am sorry, but I do not know its history bforee Hakuin, for lack of a better term, popularized it. The history of the Sutra was briefly touched upon years ago in Tricycle magazine, but I no longer have that issue.I could ask for you, if you'd like. It is sometimes popular, especially with the Rinzai sect, to chant Enmei Jukku Kannon Gyo during the New Year. I know that has done so in the past (I do not know if they do so annually). I have an ongoing relationship with them, so I would feel comfortable to ask them. I'm sure you would receive an equally kind and helpful reply if you prefer to ask. P.S. Remember my long-winded email to you a while back? This is one of the things I chant often, especially when I feel the need for more compassion in the world. The words help me to open my heart and realize the spirit of Kannon . I try to carry that with me throughout the day- like I am one of Kannon's thousand arms, reaching out in gentleness to everyone I meet.Hope I didn't go too cornball on you.

 Dear S. Dhammika, though I have never had a ccnahe to live in a Buddhist country or know personally Asian traditional Buddhists, I still do not think all is foul and stinky in Theravada. No doubt, cases of corruption are there. It is naive to expect that all or even most Buddhists are True Buddhists, just like all or even most Christians are True Christians. I assure you that I could write in a similar way a book on Orthodox Christianity or Russian Buddhists. If we go by silly traditions and superficiality of faith even among clergy then no religions are what they claim to be. Theravada in this respect is no better and no worse than any other Buddhist Tradition or any other religion. And I find the book too negativistic. No kindness or compassion to Theravadin monks or lay people, however deluded they may be, and clear DOSA (aversion) to that tradition including its history. The purpose is NOT to help Theravadins mend their ways, the book is not even addressed to them - they are like rotten apples only to serve as bad examples and then be thrown away and forgotten. Hardly an approach that the Buddha could have recommended. As far as I remember the Buddha always opposed attempts to set some Buddhists against others, but that is what this book attempts to do, as I see it. Your call to start a New tradition in Buddhism Buddhayana is OK. If you have something to offer show it , preach it, teach it. But it seems to be a wrong start to trample on some other tradition to draw attention to your own understanding of Dhamma. Whatever the problems of today's Theravada, I am deeply grateful to this tradition to offer me the least mystical, very practical and effective way to better understand the world and people including myself. Grateful to the tradition which produced such wonderful teachers like Ajahn Chaa, Ajahn Sumedho and Ajahn Brahm.

 I intended to write you this very liltte note so as to thank you once again on the awesome basics you have shown above. This has been strangely generous with you to give without restraint just what most people might have marketed for an electronic book to generate some money on their own, primarily considering the fact that you might have done it in the event you considered necessary. The thoughts additionally acted as the great way to be aware that other people have the same zeal like my personal own to grasp more concerning this issue. I know there are millions of more fun periods in the future for those who scan your site.
