Shōshinge: Hymn of True Shinjin and the Nembutsu (Session 20)

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

In this month’s session we will learn about the Chinese Pure Land Master Tanluan, who abandoned his quest for immortality after meeting the Buddhist monk Bodhiruci who introduced him to the teaching of Amida Buddha’s Pure Land.

Turning toward the dwelling of Master T’an-luan, the Emperor of Liang
