Re: Tibetan Pure Land Buddhism?
- Hi Peter and All!
Peter, I think you are right, in that I will have to "color outside
the Shinshu lines" in order to accommodate my devotion to Kannon
(i.e., Kwan Yin, Chenrezig, Avalokitesvara, Arya Tara(?))while still
practicing the Jodo Shinshu Pure Land path! Thanks to the group, and
especially to you Peter for helping me to realize it!
Namu Amida Butsu!
Namu Kannon Bosatsu!

- New to group, will introduce myself when time permits-hopefully by the end
of week. As to tibetan Pure Land practice, there are several Pureland
schools, one monastery of such located in the Los Angeles area. I also
started in Jodo Shinshu, which I adore, but do the Amitabha powa and also
attend a zen sitting on Sundays. I ascribe legitamacy to all practices, and
choose from the practical aspect of what I need and the amount of time I
have to practice. As to Tantric Pure Land, a web search will put you in
touch with the details.
