Principal Teachings of The True Sect of Pure Land

Meiji period, dated 1910 / Book, typeset on paper

An English translation of Shinshū yōshi, giving an explanation of the essential concepts of Shinshū Buddhism. The Japanese work is attributed to Eijitsu Ōkusa (1858-1912), but it is thought that Suzuki translated it with Gesshō Sasaki (1875-1926). The first edition was printed by Tokyo Asakusa Ōtani-ha Hongan-ji Betsu-in in 1910, and the translators' names were not included in the printing. From the 1921 (third) edition, the work began to be published under Ōtani-ha Honganji.
