collected works os our beloved teacher.

the three Mind are MAKOTO-KOKORO.
nothing is equal with SHINJIN.Of the Other Power...for it is working
the universal Primal Vow;this Vow embodying great Love and great
compassion,which brings ALL sentient beings into the suprime Nirvana.
The Name of this Buddha surpasses the names of all ther

- One of my favorite passages from all of Shinran's writings is from Notes on Essentials of Faith Alone.
"To abandon the mind of self-power" admonishes the various and diverse kinds of people - master of Hinayana or Mahayana, ignorant beings good or evil - to abandon the conviction that one is good, to cease relying on the self; to stop reflecting knowingly on one's evil heart, and further to abandon the judging of people as good and bad.
