An Introduction to Shinran and the Pure Land

by Maitrisiddhi (2021)

Maitrisiddhi's magnificent contribution to Glasgow Buddhist Centre's series on the pure land. In it she introduces us to Shinran, the Japanese teacher on the refuge tree of the Triratna Buddhist Community.
Maitrisiddhi explores what Shinran has to tell us about faith and ordinariness. Both of them encourage us to rest in Metta towards our our unenlightened mind. Or as Maitrisiddhi puts it delightfully "seeing our own numptiness and orienting again and again towards the infinite"
