Tannisho (Lamenting the Deviations) is a beloved classic text of Pure Land Buddhism that points the way to real happiness. As a record of the words of the extraordinary Japanese Buddhist monk Shinran, who lived some 800 years ago, Tannisho has become the mainstay of the Japanese spirit. Hundreds of commentaries have been published on the meaning of Tannisho, but Unlocking Tannisho is the only definitive commentary, based entirely on Shinran's own writings. The original Japanese version of Takamori's Unlocking Tannisho (2008) has been unusually successful for a book about Buddhism, with 200,000 copies sold to date. Rendered beautifully into English by Juliet Winters Carpenter, who stands unchallenged as today's finest translator of Buddhist texts, Unlocking Tannisho will help you to uncover the answer to the question, "What is real?"
