Namu Amida Butsu

This work is especially dedicated to Zuiken Saizo Inagaki, who sheds light on the pristine and original teachings of Jodo Shinshu (Shin Buddhism) for many people, including myself. I regard him as my soul teacher and I am very much influenced by his words and thoughts, which are deeply imbued with the Wisdom of Compassion of Amida Buddha. I read most of his writings available in Chinese language and I wish to share some of his golden words in this blog in English. Rev. George Gatenby and Mr. Gabriel Schlaefer have been kindly and untiringly assisting me to edit the translated essays so that they are readable and true to the intent of Sensei. May all partake of the wisdom of Shinshu teaching and be overpowered by the light of Amida Buddha.

Namu Amida Butsu!

What's Namo Amida Butsu?

Amida Buddha Tathagata is the single Suchness of all things, the absolute truth (the Dharma-body as Suchness). Also, He is the functioning or temporal body for the sentient beings (the Dharma-body as compassionate means).
The Buddha-body that is both the absolute truth as well as the functional body, manifested as Namo Amida Butsu.
