Curious, is The Bodhidharma Anthology considered to be a definitive account of Bodhidharma and his teachings? I read that previously Bodhidharma actual teaching and life, etc. were somewhat suspect of being genuine Bodhidharma. Does the finding of this text settle the matter once and for all?

I have a couple of recommendations, if I may?

The stereotype of the "souhei" of Late Classical and medieval pervasive and damaging, and it's also entirely inaccurate. So I'd recommend reading a couple of works by historian Mikael Adolphson.

The first deals directly with the "warrior monk" image, and comes to the conclusion that it was a politically inspired, anachronistic urban legend of sorts. Monasteries did indeed become militarized as Japan's middle ages progressed, but Adolphson points out that this was part of a trend in which society as a whole became increasingly militarized and dominated by warriors. It's called The Teeth and Claws of the Buddha: Monastic Warriors and Sohei in Japanese History

The second one is a history of Japanese monastic institutions and their political influence from the beginning of the Heian period to the end of the Kamakura period. It is refreshingly impartial, and also debunks the "warrior monk" stereotype at some length. This book also deals with the delicate web of politics and religion in Classical and Medieval Japan without being judgmental or preachy. It's called The Gates of Power Both books are put out by the University of Hawai'i Press.

Good for comparing alternate translations:

Already posted, I believe, but wouldn't hurt to point to this particular page of teachings:

I have a blog where I post Pure Land quotes, poetry, and passages. I also try to translate things into Esperanto for the international community. I'll soon begin adding French translations as well.

Awesome blog!
I'm tempted to offer translation into Japanese, but I really don't have time.
The good news is that for some of the quoted works, Japanese & Chinese may already exist somewhere online.

Since I'm posting on this thread again already I figured I'll add some of the links I posted last night:

Interesting article & video (that I got from Greg K) that gives insight to an eldest son expected to take over as high priest as his family's Jodo Shin Shu temple.

Rev Kosen Ishikawa has started doing live Jodo Shu dharma services.
I think the standard start time will be 4pm EST (8pm GST) on Sundays.
Future Dharma services and his previous Dharma Services can be accessed at his youtube channel.

This website is a video site that's been used to broadcast 24 hour Nembutsu marathons from Japan & Hawaii. The info doesn't look to have been updated since 2013, but I was told it's still the site to go to in order to learn about & participate in (view) upcoming events.
