By Kemmyo Taira Sato.
This commentary on the Tannisho, a central work for modern Jodo Shinshu (True Pure Land) Buddhism, is one of the most detailed examinations of the text in English. The author provides a new translation of the text along with a careful analysis of the work that is ground in traditional Shin scholarship and his own religious experiences as a Shin Buddhist who has practiced in both Japan and England. Rev. Sato's new commentary will be a valuable resource for practicing Buddhists and of great interest to those studying the development of Japanese Buddhism in the 20th century.
