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.

Buddhism is one of the world’s six dominant religions; however, it has one significant difference. Buddhism has no Creator, no Omnipotent Being. The Buddha himself is simply a Great Teacher, and an ever-growing number of Westerners are now coming into contact with his philosophy finding that if they truly open their hearts, it can bring inner peace and happiness. This course is an intriguing introduction to the subject, demonstrating that study can indeed change the way we look and feel about things. bsygroup offer a course on buddhism, you can contact them via 0800 731 9271 which is a freephone number.

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.
