“Understanding Jodo-Shinshu” by Professor Eiken Kobai

Professor Eiken Kobai’s book “Understanding Jodo Shinshu” is now available online at his website, The Shin Buddhism Study Center.

If you are interested in Shinran’s TRUE teaching -
If you want to end your suffering, at last -
If you are confused by the many and varied modern Shin teachings that are only loosely based on Shinran’s thought -

…then this book will clear up the muddle.

In particular, Kobai’s precise reading and explanation of Shinran will give you the understanding you need to end your confusion, and become a person of “settled Shinjin”, the same “true entrusting” as Shinran had - the gift of Amida Buddha.

Shinran says this: that all who simply entrust themselves to Amida Buddha, learning of His Vow, and His Work - WILL take their next birth in the Pure Land that Amida Buddha has created for our benefit. There they will become Buddhas themselves - at long last.

This experience of SHINJIN - a single moment of thought of complete and utter trust in Amida - is what Shinran communicated about over and over again - insisting his teaching be preserved and presented with neither dilution nor divergence.

Why? Because, as Professor Kobai himself says: the purpose of the dharma is to teach us how to become a Buddha.

In this book, as a TRUE teacher, Kobai Sensei explains the dharma of Shinran so clearly that ANYONE can listen deeply, and fulfill their deepest aspiration, by responding to Amida Buddha’s call to the endarkened human heart.

Encountering a true teacher of Shinran’s True Teaching in Kobai Sensei has been a critical event in my own life - eliminating all confusion and all doubt, establishing me firmly in the same SHINJIN as Shinran himself.

NamuAmidaButsu. I am grateful beyond words.
