Dear Visitor,

Welcome to ‘The Collected Works of Shinran‘.

It was recently brought to my attention that there is some missing text within the website. Pages (from the printed version) 456-469 from the “Notes on Essentials of Faith Alone” are missing. I will be correcting this as soon as possible. Apologies for not noticing this omission before now. I trust that your path on the Nembutsu remained unhindered!

Rev. Diane Jishin Dunn
