Eiken Kobai Sensei is one of the world's leading scholars of True Shin Buddhism. On this website we have published two of his most important works in translation:
- Understanding Jodo-Shinshu
- Misunderstandings of Master Rennyo
In each of them, Professor Kobai explains the True Teaching, Practice and Realization of the Pure Land Way, as taught first by Master Shinran, and then by Master Rennyo.
For those new to Shin Buddhism, and for those confused by the different teachings being propagated today in Master Shinran's name, Kobai Sensei provides clear insight into the Dharma coming from 40 years of study as a faithful scholar of Shinran's thought.
It is our sincere wish that you will find Professor Kobai's words helpful in resolving all doubt and becoming a person of the same SHINJIN (True Entrusting) as Shinran himself.
May you come to know the inconceivable joy of Amida Buddha's salvation in the present, and the gratitude that comes from realizing that completion of your journey to Buddhahood is assured at the end of this life.
If you have any questions about the wonderful salvation being offered to us because of the Primal Vow of Amida Buddha, Kobai Sensei invites you to contact him directly using the link on the menu bar. He will be happy to answer all sincere inquiries.
