Thought Questions

1. In chapter VIII of “Tannisho,” it is written that “the saying of Nembutsu is neither a religious practice nor a good act.” If it is neither of these two things, what is the Nembutsu, according to Shinran?

2. Do you think the Nembutsu can become the foundation of the life of the modern Shin Buddhist? In other words, is it possible for people today to “live” the Nembutsu?
