Printed version of my last book - JODO SHINSHU BUDDHIST TEACHINGS

Finaly the printed version of my last book, JODO SHINSHU BUDDHIST TEACHINGS is ready for sale!
You can buy it from this link where you may also find other books for sale:

The book contains easy to understand explanations of the major doctrines of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, questions and answers, and corrections of some modern divergences from the Dharma.


Jodo Shinshu does not give moral speeches and it doesn’t contain difficult practices. While other Buddhist methods talk about the ideal of Buddhahood and the possibility to attain it in this life, Jodo Shinshu starts with the sense of failure.

It is a simple path for ordinary people like you and me, lost from morning till evening in the fight for daily survival, filled with illusions and attachments to which we see neither the beginning nor the end. Jodo Shinshu is not a path for saints, but for losers, for those who cannot attain by themselves anything stable in the spiritual life.

Not the promise of purification, but of salvation as we are is the essence of Jodo Shinshu. Nothing special, no state of mind to be attained or developed.  Only faith in the Infinite Compassion of Amida Buddha.
