Date: Sat 12th & Sun 13th May 2018 Place: Jodo Shinshu Shinrankai Headquarters

(2,000-Tatami-Mat Hall) Speaker: Kentetsu Takamori-sensei ●Profile of Kentetsu Takamori-sensei Born in 1929 in Toyama Prefecture, Japan. For 70 years, he has been giving Buddhist lectures across Japan and abroad, as well as writing books on Buddhism. He is the author of Unlocking Tannisho, which clarifies Master Shinran’s teachings—the essence of Pure Land Buddhism. He also wrote the script for the major hit movie Why We Live: Master Rennyo and the Fire at Yoshizaki, the million-selling book series Naze Ikiru (the first of which was translated into English as You Were Born For A Reason), and various other works. When you learn about Tannisho, the way you see the world will completely change! Your view on life, happiness, and humanity will all drastically change! When views change, the whole world will change. ●Praise for Tannisho Martin Heidegger, a German philosopher (1889-1976): I have only recently, through the English translation of Tannisho, come to know the Eastern holy man Shinran. If I had known ten years ago that such a great Buddhist master existed in the Orient, I would not have studied Latin or Greek. I would have learned Japanese, listened to Shinran's teachings, and devoted my life to making them known throughout the world. But now it is too late. (A diary entry from Heidegger’s later years)
