The Way of Jodo Shinshu
Reflections on the Hymns of Shinran Shonin

About this web site

This website ( is in two sections. The original site (The Way of Jodo Shinshu - formerly Notes on the Nembutsu) is a series of articles on the hymns of Shinran (1173-1263). The Udumbara Flower is a supplement, which seeks to explore other writings of Shinran, and some teachers and thinkers influenced by his ideas.

All of the essays on both sections are a personal appreciation of the way of Jodo Shinshu.
