Tibetan texts and art from Virginia University

Post by Kim O'Hara » Mon Jan 27, 2020 6:16 am

This "online exhibit" records a very good university library display from the late 90s - but its age doesn't seem to matter since the content is far older.
The catalogue essays were well done and seem to be reproduced in full. Images are a bit small, perhaps because the bandwidth at the time was so much less than what we enjoy now.

With a heart wandering in ignorance down this path and that, to guide me I simply say Namu-Amida-Butsu. -- Ippen

The Fundamental Vow [of Amitabha Buddha] is just for such people as woodcutters and grassgatherers, vegetable pickers, drawers of water and the like, illiterate folk who merely recite the Buddha's name wholeheartedly, confident that as a result of saying "Namu Amida Butsu" they will be born into the western land. -- Master Hōnen
