By: Dennis Hirota
This is an account of Ippen (1239-1289) - a Japanese hijiri (holy man)who led an itinerant life, spreading the 'Pure Land' path among the people, reaching all levels of society. While well known in Japan, Ippen has - until of late, remained a relatively obscure figure in Western accounts of Buddhism. Dennis Hirota's book about Ippen will certainly alter that. The material here has been translated authoritively and yet sensitively, accompanied by illustrations.
