Buddhist Discussion: What is Shin Buddhism?
Please join us as we listen to an old 1950’s recording on Shin Buddhism. This talk was written by D.T. Suzuki and given by Mihoko Okamura. Ms. Okamura was D.T. Suzuki’s assistant from the early 50’s until his death in 1966. This rare recording has been in storage from the early 70’s and this is the first time being played in many years.
A discussion will follow the recording. We will compare our knowledge of Shin Buddhism today to how it was explained back in the early 1950’s when few American knew about Shinran Shonin and his teachings.
This program is for all who want to learn more about Shin Buddhism, its teaching, and its founder.
A donation $5 for ABSC members and $10 for all others are requested.
Place: American Buddhist Study Center Library 331 Riverside (between 105 and 106 Street and Riverside Drive)
