How would you describe Shin Buddhism with 25 words
Shin Buddhism is a religion that shows that the
compassion of the universe (Amida) flows through all beings to save them from samsara.
It is an egalitarian sect which holds that enlightenment
is assured to all beings regardless of their karmic standing. All that is required is to invoke the Name of Amida with a mind
of true entrusting. Then, what has been already accomplished will become manifest.
Shin is the path of transcendence, in which suffering
is assuredly transformed into liberation by entrusting solely in the great wisdom and compassion of Amida.
--Sensei G.R. Lewis
Shin Buddhism is meant to give assurance and release
people from religious fears and intimidation and does not attempt to control the spiritual destiny of people through threats
For me, it is more than a religious path, it is
a way of life based on faith in the Primal Vow of Amida. I’m embraced never to be abandoned by Boundless Compassion.
