The Jodo Shinshu Buddhist Creed
Composed by Master Rennyo
I give up trust in my powerless self, and abandon all practices that rely on the false ego.
I know that, because of Amida Buddha's Boundless Compassion, I am assured of re-birth in His Pure Land the very moment that I put my trust in Him.
I call His Name, Namu Amida Butsu, in happiness and thanksgiving for the gift of His Universal Vow.
I am grateful to Shinran Shonin and his followers for leading me to this profound teaching.
I will try to live, throughout my life, according to the way of Nembutsu that they have taught.
