We would like to invite you to dive more deeply into the beautiful and imaginative world of Great Faith, Great Wisdom: Practice and Awakening in the Pure Land Sutras of Mahayana Buddhism by Ratnaguna and Śraddhāpa. Great Faith, Great Wisdom is our newest book, launched earlier this year.
Please visit the new Great Faith, Great Wisdom book site, which provides the audio reading of the sutras, an excerpt from the book, and an interview with the author Ratnaguna all in one place. We hope the site conveys the beauty of the book itself; we collaborated with thebuddhistcentre.com as part of their ‘stories’ initiative to bring it to life.
In a beautiful and imaginative review in Pure Land Notes (the Journal of the Shin Buddhist Fellowship UK), Steve Lane states,
“Reading Great Faith, Great Wisdom is exciting, surprising and thoroughly rewarding. It is a book that needs to be read again and again – not because it is difficult, but because it offers us . . . the opportunity to see the familiar anew. That is always worthwhile.”
