Dear Visitor,

Welcome to ‘The Collected Works of Shinran‘. (Translated, with introductions, glossaries, and reading aids, by Dennis Hirota (Head Translator), Hisao Inagaki, Michio Tokunaga, and Ryushin Uryuzu) As of June 16th, 2001 all texts of Vol. I (Shinran’s Writings) have been uploaded and are ready for viewing. The Glossary of Shin Buddhist Terms which is found in Vol. II (Introductions, Glossaries, and Reading Aids) is presently available from the drop down menu on each page.

Many thanks to Rev. Yuho B. Van Parijs for his incredible dedication to input the entire Collected Works of Shinran manually.

It was recently brought to my attention that the section [On “Provisional” and “False”] 106-113 was missing from the online version.  I have corrected that as of today. It was very difficult to recover all of the text last year after hackers corrupted the site, so please, if you see something is wrong with the online version of the Collected Works of Shinran, do not hesitate to bring to my attention.  Thank you very much.
