About the course

Shin Dharma Net is pleased to present Rev. Dr. Alfred Bloom’s ”Shin Buddhism in Modern Culture: A Self Study Course,” which explores Shin Buddhism, also known as Jodo Shinshu, historically and in modern context.

Readers may respond to the content as desired. Hopefully, it will stimulate thought and enrich one’s understanding of the teaching. Self-study questions are provided at the end of each chapter for personal use to check comprehension of the material.

Dr. Bloom’s book, “The Promise of Boundless Compassion: Shin Buddhism for Today,” which is based on this internet course, is available in softcover from the Honpa Hongwanji Betsuin Bookstore, Honolulu.
