7:00 p.m. Reading and Discussion

This session will conclude our journey through the Shoshinge, which began in the Spring of 2020.  As we read this final section, we will reflect upon the significance of Shoshinge as a whole and consider the essential teachings that Shinran Shonin illuminates in his verses.

The mahasattvas and masters who spread the sutras
Save the countless beings of utter defilement and evil.
With the same mind, all people of the present, whether monk or lay,
Should rely wholly on the teachings of these venerable masters.
