I have been a Zen practitioner for the last 2 years and also done some Samatha (Theravada) meditation and study. Somehow, something hasn’t quite sat 100% right though and I have continued to search for the perfect practice and tradition. Perhaps, this is something many Buddhists do.
I have been looking for a warm and friendly Sangha and I tripped across something online about Pure Land Buddhism, extolling it’s beauty, simplicity and acceptance of people ‘just as they are’.
Something was calling me. I searched on google, that brought me to Amida Shu 🙂
I have started chanting Nembutsu for maybe 20 mins per day and I love it. I’m reading ‘Just as you are’ and it truly resonates. I feel as though I am coming home.
