The promise of Amida Buddha : Honen's path to bliss by Hōnen( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hōnen Shōnin, who lived in Japan in the twelfth century, saw that the complexity of traditional Buddhist practices made them inaccessible to people outside the monastic elite. Drawing on the Chinese Pure Land tradition, he re-imagined Pure Land practice for Japan and ushered in a new and dynamic practice that continues in the present day. In our degenerate age, says Hōnen, we cannot hope to reach enlightenment via the practices employed by the Buddhist masters of old. For us there is only one avenue to liberation--rebirth in the Pure Land of Amida, from whence our progress is irreversible and our ultimate release assured. The Pure Land is a heavenly destination made manifest through the pure vow of Amida to save all beings, and we secure passage to this land in our next life through pure faith in Amida at the very moment of death. The practice of faith in Amida is performed through nembutsu, the continual recitation of the mantra Namo Amida Butsu, which bonds us to Amida and brings us into his care."--Jacket

Honen(113-1212) is one of the outstanding figures in history of Pure Land Buddhism. Honen's life long search for spiritual illumination and enlightement lead him through an exhaustive, journey into the Buddist teachings.

This sparked a revolution in Buddist practice in Japan wich led to the popularization of Buddism amongst the masses and spurred the emergence of other great masters of the time like Dogen, NIchiren, and Shinran, Honen's disciple
