The early work of the Russian Buddhologist 0.0. Rosenberg (1888-1919), a disciple and follower of Academician F. I. Shcherbatsky, was written in 1915 on the basis of observations of the religious life of Japan in the 10s of the XX century.

Thus, the analysis of the content of the article-essay allows us to trace the process of forming the religious views of one of the most prominent representatives of the St. Petersburg school of Buddhology.
