Notes on the Nembutsu
Reflections on the wasan of Shinran

About this web site

This website ( is in two sections. The original site (Notes on the Nembutsu) is a series of articles on the hymns of Shinran (1173-1263). The Udumbara Flower is a supplement, which seeks to explore other writings of Shinran, and some teachers and thinkers influenced by his ideas.

All of the essays on both sections are a personal appreciation of the life and teaching of Shakyamuni Buddha, the Pure Land Dharma Masters and Shinran.
