Gratitude: Chanting the Pure Land Sutra

I am profoundly grateful to Chuo Bukkyo Gakuin for the chance to chant the entire liturgy of the Three Pure Land Sutra (the Sutra on the Buddha of Infinite Life, the Sutra on the Contemplation of the Buddha of Infinite Life, and the Sutra on the Buddha Amida), the foundation of Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha doctrine. I can barely follow the chanting, which is done at very high speed, but I am inspired by the chance to participate in a tradition of oral transmission that goes back more than 2500 years to the Buddha Shakyamuni. Mahalo!
