When followers see the panel of Shinrankai history, they give a shout of joy. Similar panels were posted on the wall at Shikoku Center. On March 2, fifty one panels which display the history of Shinrankai were posted at Shikoku Center in Kagawa prefecture.
The panels at the Shikoku Center are a smaller version of the panels which were posted on the wall of the underpass of the headquarter on the 750th commemorative event of Master Shinran last year. Kyoko Tazaka said, “These panels tell us the orthodox current of Pure Land Buddhism passed down from Master Shinran and Master Rennyo to Shinrankai. I am really glad that I could receive these awesome panels at our local center.”
Director Akira Kusanagi smiled and said, “Once people come to this room, they exclaim with joy. The key teachings of Master Shinran, for instance, “The Name is the true object of reverence,” “Salvation in this lifetime”, “Attaining salvation occurs by faith alone” are explained on panels. I would like to explain these words one by one so that people understand the teachings of Master Shinran.
