Ji ; (1) A suffix to a name, meaning temple-monastery. Thus Engaku-ji at Kamakura.

The suffix -In has the same meaning, as in Chion-In, the mother temple of the Jōdo sect.

The suffix -An means a smaller temple within a larger unit, as in Shōden-an, Dr Suzuki’s house in Engaku-ji.

(2) (also pronounced Shi), teacher, as Hakuin Zen-ji, the Zen teacher.

(3) A fact, event, object, particular thing; the opposite to Ri (q.v.), which means principles, rather as spiritual principles. (See Jijimuge.)
