Great Living - In the Pure Encounter Between Master and Disciple

Great Living – In the Pure Encounter Between Master and Disciple

Great Living – In the Pure Encounter Between Master and Disciple – is a volume of essays and commentaries on the Japanese spiritual classic, the Tannisho (歎異抄), in a new English language translation for a western audience. The Tannisho is the most famous text of the Japanese Jodo Shinshu [浄土真宗] – True Pure Land School or ‘Shin Buddhist’ tradition and as such has seen several translations into English over the last 80 years. With Rev. Professor Sato’s translation and commentary, however, we have a meticulously detailed examination and profound appreciation of the text from the perspective of the living encounter between teacher and student that lies at the heart of the Shin Buddhist faith.
