How lucky and blessed are we to follow the pureland path. It truly is Buddhism for the masses.

I have translated the Wikipedia Pure Land page into Esperanto.
Although Buddhism is popular among Esperantists, many terms simply have not yet been coined. I tried my best with approximating pronunciation of Sanskrit terms (Sukhavati -> Sukavatio) and others (phowa -> pobao, Jodo-Shu -> Ĝodo-ŝu).
There are a lot of cross-linked articles that will take time to do, but maybe now someone new will encounter the Pure Land teachings. :buddha1:

I discontinued the other Pure Land Tumblr blog a few months back. However, since I found the queue functionality, it's been much easier to keep a once or twice-daily stream of quotes, websites, images, and resources flowing on http://purelandbuddhism.tumblr.com/

It slants towards Jodo Shu and Shinshu, but occasionally there are bits of Chinese and Vietnamese Pure Land on there.
