THE JODO SHU RESEARCH INSTITUTE

COMPREHENSIVE STUDIES IN PURE LAND BUDDHISM

Welcome to the Jodo Shu Research Institute homepage. Inside you will find in-depth history, analysis and translations of Pure Land Buddhist resources related to Japan's first independent Pure Land denomination, Jodo Shu, founded by Honen Shonin in 1175. We have divided the materials into multiple sub-headings in order to allow for varying levels of interest, to those general readers wanting a simple overview, to students and scholars looking for detailed treatment of points and access to further sources. In addition, we have included information about our ongoing work and projects at the Research Institute.
