This is the first of Mr. Unno's books I've read and I found it one of the more beautifully written books on religion I've encountered. He is an exceptional author. I wish I might have been one of his students in his classroom at university. Highly recommend to those interested in Shin Buddhism for its clarity. Brief chapters, concise writing, inspiring.

I had the opportunity of eating dinner with Dr. Unno and his wife Alice in 1999. I was young and full of my self at the time. I missed a great opportunity to listen. Now as I read this book, I understand what a great teacher he was. If you are ready to listen deaply, this book is a glimpse at the heart of Amida's gift. I highly recommend it for anyone who has exhausted jinriki. In gasho, a fan of this book.

I am re-reading this wonderful book. I read it through quickly the first time, excited to have found Shin Buddhism explained in a style that I could relate to.

The book is written in short chapters which made the concepts seem more focused and clear. The author uses simple analogy and straightforward language to explain the deeper concepts. I read each chapter now as a prompt for sitting meditation practice.

The concepts and tenets of Shin Buddhism are beautifully contained in this small and unpretentious book. It has been pivotal to my journey. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in understanding Shin Buddhism.

Beautiful. The author reveals how Shin Nembutsu recitation connects one to the Reality beyond the ordinary perspectives of the mind. That Other Power will do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. This is a Way of salvation through faith.
Saithi
superior jodo book, one of the best.
the author has intuitive insights that
can only come from amida butsu
(other power). this book presents
a direct line - via your mind - to the
reality of amida butsu.

great quality
This book by far is the best in explaining Shin Buddhism and the Pure Land tradition. Also what really makes this book really nice is it isn't too complicated and has personal expirence throughout it. No longer do I carry missconceptions about this wonderful tradition. This gets 5 stars and has changed a Zen Buddhist's(that's me) ideas on once thought of as lazy chanting group.
