Honen, Shinran and Nichiren

Lecture no. 22 from the course: Buddhism

 Honen, Shinran and Nichiren

Taught by Professor Malcolm David Eckel | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

During the Kamakura Period (1192-1333) political unrest in Japan led some to doubt whether Buddhism could be practiced in such a "degenerate age." Three Buddhist thinkers—Honen, Shinran and Nichiren—set new traditions in motion that have had enormous influence wherever Japanese Buddhism has traveled in the world.
