The Tannisho

Reading the Tannisho is perhaps the most meaningful way for today's Shin Buddhists to touch the thought of Shinran Shonin, who founded the tradition in 13th century Japan. This is a wonderful, modern translation by the eminent Dr. Taitetsu Unno.

Virtual Shin

Welcome to DharmaNet's learning resource for Pure Land and Jodo Shinshu Buddhism.

Buddhism is a path of supreme optimism, for one of its basic tenets is that no human life or experience is to be wasted, abandoned, or forgotten, but all should be transformed into a source of vibrant life, deep wisdom, and compassionate living.
