honored to present this podcast episode with Rev. Marvin Harada,
the Bishop of the Buddhist Churches of America. In it
we discuss what makes Shin Buddhism a truly "everyday
Buddhism", meditation, mindfulness, chanting, ritual, and about the
teachers we have in common and what made them special.
I know you'll enjoy this talk with Rev.
Harada as much as I did talking with him. He is
down-to-earth and delightful, if you can't tell by his giggle! if
you've never heard of Shin Buddhism—or don't know too much about
it—this episode is for you.
Pure Land Buddhism is one of the most
widely practiced forms of Buddhism in East Asia, and in
Japan, Shin Buddhism, or Jodo Shinshu, is actually the largest
school of Buddhism in Japan.
CORRECTION TO THE
INTRODUCTION OF REV. HARADA: Rev. Harada served as a minister for
the Orange County Buddhist Church, but did not serve as head
minister throughout the entire 33-year
