Description

Shin Buddhism arises from the teachings of Shinran, a profoundly compelling spiritual authority of 13th century Japan. Shinran taught men from all walks of life to find solace and strength in Amida Buddha, a compassionate aspect of the Cosmic Buddha who renounced his own enlightenment until all men could be saved through his power. The place of Shin Buddhism in the contemporary spectrum of Buddhist traditions has been gaining in significance and depth of scholarship. From many angles, scholars are exploring the relation of this teaching to the ancient tradition from which it emerged as well as discerning its contemporary relevance. Living in Amida’s Universal Vow offers a broad spectrum of essays concerning Pure Land and Shin Buddhism. The selection of authors ranges from major teachers in modern Shin Buddhism to more recent scholars who are making significant contributions to the study of the tradition. It also furnishes material on the social perspective of Shin Buddhism and its ethical orientation, as well as comparative approaches. As the foundation of the largest popular Buddhist sect in Japan (and overseas in the West), the many-faceted aspects of Shin Buddhism merits increased attention. Though Zen and Tibetan Buddhism have generated much interest in the West among students and some practitioners, Shin Buddhism has always reached out to the masses with the message of Amida Buddha’s universal compassion. Groundbreaking in its content and approach, this book succeeds in showing the continued relevance of Shin Buddhism to both scholars and seekers alike.
