Overview

This is the first introduction to Pureland Buddhism, also called Amida Buddhism. Under-represented in literature, Pureland Buddhism is closely concerned with the relationship between life and death. It is both about going to heaven and about heaven on earth; a thoroughly spiritual form of Buddhism, but also a very practical one because it is a faith that recognizes people's limitations. It is not full of guilt, nor injunctions to be perfect. It is for ordinary people, the sort who make mistakes and weep when sad things happen.
