Namu Amida Butsu!
I will be posting some of the translated works of Zuiken Sensei from one of his books in Japanese. This book is titled as The Pitch-darkness - The Culmination of Anjin. I have got its chinese version which I can read and understand. Rev George Gatenby encouraged me to translate it into English so that more people can have access to it. I was a bit doubtful at the beginning as my fluency of English is lacking. However, since Rev George Gatenby is willing to help me to edit and proofread the manuscrtipts then I am more than happy to give it a try. In fact, it is Amida, Master Shinran and Zuiken Sensei doing it by making use of my hand and mind only!
I will post the passages here one after another for viewing. I am not sure I can fully grasp the meaning in those passages but I hope with the help of Rev George, the meanings will become clear to us as Rev George is someone who know very much of Zuiken's thought I guess.
For your knowledge, the passages will not come in actual order as display in the books. It is simply up to my choice to translate whichever passsages that I find them easier and convenient. In fact, each passage can stand on its own without interference.
However, I will first post the foreword of the book to give all an idea the purpose of this book to be published.
