Pure Land Buddhism in South Australia

'In the history of Mahayana Buddhism, the Pure Land tradition has played a distinguished role in spreading the Buddhist message of universal compassion.'

- from the Introduction to The Three Pure Land Sutras, Vol II, Shin Buddhism Translation Series, p. vii

Shinran Shonin

Shin Buddhism (or Jodo Shinshu - the 'True Teaching of the Pure Land Way') is grounded in the Primal Vow of Amida Buddha, which was expounded by Shakyamuni Buddha and the Dharma Masters of India, China and Japan.

Shin Buddhism was founded - almost 800 years ago - by Shinran (1173-1263), a great and famous Buddhist teacher.
