​'May we, the disciples of the Buddha, when we come to die suffer no mental perversion, nor come under the spell of any hallucination, nor lose the consciousness of the Truth, but, free from agony of mind and body, may we in peace of mind, like those in an ecstasy, have that holy retinue of Amida come to meet us, and, embarking safely on the ship of his Original Vow, may we have our birth into Amida Buddha’s Pure Land, and sit upon the lotus of the first rank.'

(Zendo)

Description:


'Honen the Buddhist Saint' by Coates and Ishizuka, seems to be out of print but I highly recommend 'Honen the Buddhist Saint: Essential Writings and Official Biography' by Joseph A. Fitzgerald which is a a condensed version of the former. This book is a profound read for anyone who enjoys prayer.
