By: Shin Buddhism Translation Series
A translation of Shinran's Yuishinsho-mon'i.

Shinran wrote these Notes to explore the meaning of important passages from the Pure Land Scriptures.  The passages are those quited in Essentials of Faith Alone, an outline of Honenes teaching by Shinran's contemporary Seikaku; spanning the basic themes of Pure Land Buddhism, they make Shinran's Notes an occasion for profound reflection on the central issues of Buddhist teaching - what it means to attain Buddhahood, and how it is possible.
