In the moment Dharmakara became Amida Buddha, his 48 vows and his Pure Land became real and effective methods for the salvation of sentient beings. This book is my personal attempt to provide easy to understand explanations on the vows so that people can live in accordance with them and acquire the true and real  salvation from birth and death.

Rennyo and the Roots of Modern Japanese Buddhism
Oxford Publishing Press, 2005
298 pages, Hardcover; 
Price: 50 Euro or 62 US Dollars (shipment included)

Rennyo Shonin (1415-1499) is considered the second founder of Shin Buddhism. Under his leadership, the Honganji branch grew in size and power, becoming a national organization with great wealth and influence. Rennyo's success lay in conveying an attractive spiritual message while 
exerting effective administrative control. A savvy politician as well as religious leader, ennyo played a significant role in political, economic, and institutional developments. Though he is undeniably one of the most influential persons in the history of Japanese religion, his legacy remains enigmatic and largely overlooked by the West. This volume offers an assessment of Rennyo's contribution to Buddhist thought and the Honganji religious organization.

Sensei, please reserve this book for me if you still have it:

Zuiken's Shinshu Dharmapada

Josho Adrian Cirlea said...

I will keep one copy for you!

Juho said...

I have to say that you should remove "Mokugyo" and "Hanya Shingyo scroll" from your items-for-sale website. These items are recognized as symbol of "self power way of teaching" and strictly prohibited to use at Jodo-Shinshu temples.

Josho Adrian Cirlea said...

for Juho:

The items on sale on this part of the website, which is like a general Buddhist shop, are not for Jodo Shinshu followers only.
"Mokugyo" and "Hannya Shingyo" are not sold to be used in Jodo Shinshu temples. I have friends, visitors and readers from other schools too, so they might wish to buy them, for their own practice, and in the same time, support the construction of Amidaji.
So, I will not remove them until they are sold. I have only one copy of each.

Thank you for the support!
