Eshinni and Kakushinni, the Mothers of Jodo Shinshu


- 
the memorial stone of Kakushinni
Have you ever thought to Eshinni, the wife of Shinran Shonin or to his daughter, Kakushinni? I often think to them and my feelings are those of a son to his mother.
To us, the members of Amidaji sangha, Eshinni and her daughter are the mothers of Jodo Shinshu.
They didn’t preach like Shinran, never appeared in front of the disciples,  but this doesn’t mean their contribution was small.
