Well, there you go...........Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 January 2018
For me there are far better works out there ( perhaps in a more "westerly' direction ) that would serve as both an introduction to Pure Land Buddhism or/and as a devotional book to reflect upon and contemplate. Try Unno or D T Suzuki, the Journals of Saichi, that wonderful mykonin, found in Suzuki's little book on Christian/Buddhist mysticism, readily available and cheap! Yes, many. Here, in this book, we are told that ALL other religions wish to see this Sutra ground into dust. Really? We are told that ONLY "master" Hsuan Hua has the necessary qualifications to expound its subtleties; we MUST attend dharma lessons given by the "qualified" to learn. Oh dear, just about everything I have gratefully gleaned from reading Honen, Shinran and others is thus thrown into the bin. No matter, Namu Amida Butsu!

This book changed my life. Laid up and disabled after surgery I had run out of electronic fun, so I decided to pick this up off my shelf. I'd ordered from Amazon ofter listening to a piece about it on NPR. I transformed from a semi-arguementative agnostic, to a mindfull, open and accepting being/vessel. Diagnosed to walk in six months, I played in a golf tournament only nine weeks from corrective ankle surgery. Namo Amithaba Buddha.
