I have not. Is it available on line?

Do you have any comments on it? How do you see Shinran in connection to Zen?

The 13th century in Japan was definitely a stimulating time for Japanese Buddhism when we think of Dogen, Shinran, Nichiren, and others.

No, I haven't seen it and I can't find it online either.

I found the link on a Hungarian Buddhist phorum and to be honest, I thought Shinran was a Zen monk for some reason. :blush:

Another find for lazy youtubers like me. This one is about Shinran's master, Honen.

There is a deep Zen connection, and not only historically. DT Suzuki, for example,
wrote extensively on Shinran and Pure Land Buddhism. His translation of Shinran's major has recently been republished. Suzuki highly praised Pure Land from a Zen perspective. As I recall, he said Zen relies on self power, Pure Land on other power. If you go all the way through you find that other power and self power are the same.
