The Teachings of Shin Buddhism, the Japanese Way of Wisdom and Compassion
Shin is the uniquely Japanese flowering of the type of Buddhism known as "Pure Land". It originated in the thirteenth century with the charismatic and prophetic figure Shinran (1171-1263), whose interpretation of the traditional Pure Land techings was extremely influential in his own lifetime and remains so today. In a period when Japanese Buddhism was dominated by an elitist monastic establishment, Shinran's Shin teaching became a way of liberation for all people, regardless of age, class, or gender.

The Pure Land School is a form of Mahayana Buddhism that centers around the Buddha of Infinite Light and Life, known in Japanese as Amida, in Chinese as O-mi-t'o, and in Sanskrit as Amitabha and Amitayus. This Buddha is dwelling in the Land of Happiness, far to the west of this world, beyond the realms of samsara. With boundless wisdom and compassion, he perceives the problems of existence of those who are suffering from evil karma in samsara and provides means of emancipation.
