Yuzu-Nenbutsu is interesting as Ryonin applied Avatamsaka philosophy to Nenbutsu practice, he also introduced Chinese tonal Nenbutsu chanting,which is very beautiful. Pork Chop are there any nice sound files? thanks for the explanation.
Namu Kanzeon Bosatsu
The Tai-ching states "the women in the realms of Mara, Sakra and Brahma all neither abandoned ( their old) bodies nor received (new) bodies. They all received buddhahood with their current bodies (genshin)" Thus these verses state that the dharma nature is like a great ocean. No right or wrong is preached (within it) Ordinary people and sages are equal, without superiority or inferiority

Haven't had much luck yet finding audio tracks.
This page has more videos, including vids of their services - one of them has a much cleaner version of the song used in the Manbu-Oneri. Another one of the videos has the biggest mala I've ever seen (beads the size of baseballs, lots of people using it at once, stretches for yards and yards).

According to this page, the 5 main sutras they promote are the Avatamsaka, the Lotus, and the 3 Pure Land.

PS - was a little wrong before, Ippen was a great-grand student of Honen: Honen -> Zenne-bo Shoku -> Shotatsu -> Ippen.
