About the Book

With a foreword by Prof. Alfred Bloom. This completely new study of Japanese Shin Buddhism offers a valuable combination of historical development, carefully selected readings with commentaries and illustrations. Widely welcomed both for its scope as course work reader and as a general introduction to the subject.


'An easy-to-understand and informative book that examines the history, teachings and ceremonies within one of the Japanese Buddhist schools, namely the Jodo Shinshu (Pure Land) Movement.' - David Moreton, Pacific Affairs
