By Reverend Hogen Yoshihiko Fujimoto.
In what has become a "classic" text on Jodo Shinshu chaplaincy, the late Rev. Fujimoto shares his reflections on his work with inmates under incarceration as well as their correspondences with him. The inmates' letters to him reveal poignant and profound realizations as they deeply connect with the true heart of Shin Buddhism. As fellow seekers of the truth, the inmates can be bodhisattvas to us all who are bound and imprisoned by our own ignorant, ego-centered selves.
