True Entrusting: Shinran, the Buddha and Bhante 2024
‘The awakening of faith in Shin Buddhism is a moment of pure egolessness…. Faith of this kind is not faith in the current sense of the term, but the emotional counterpart of wisdom.’
- Sangharakshita, A Survey of Buddhism

With meditative mornings, study afternoons and devotional evenings, we’ll explore what Shinran, the Buddha and Bhante have to say to us around receptivity and devotion, failure and forgiveness, surrender and entrusting.
