Shin Buddhism


God can be "odd," from our perspective, but Love always knows what She is doing, and She always gets her way!:)

We have been reading about a mystical form of Japanese Buddhism, called "Shin." Its basic teaching is called jinen honi, and this is living out the will of the One, into which personal will disappears. This is called the "will of Amida," one of their names for the Buddha, and their mantra for vanishing into Lovemind is namu Amida butsu. This is a fine and very profound application of the principle of mysticism in Buddhism; so, we heartily can recommend it.:)
