AbstractThis "Teachings Essential for Rebirth in the Pure Land" is a collection of important passages selected from numerous Buddhist scriptures and relating to rebirth in Sukhavati,the western paradise of Amitayus. It was complied by Genshin,a monk residing in the Eshin-in Temple on Mt. Hiei.

This work is regarded as a source book of Buddhist thought on heaven and hell,and exerted considerable influence on posterity,not only within the Buddhist community and literature and art. In particular,it should be noted that the concept of nenbutsu propounded in this work provided the momentum leading to the establishment of the various branches of Pure Land Buddhism as independent schools. It can therefore be regarded as holding first place among the basic texts of Pure Land Buddhism.

It is divided into 10 chapters, the final chapter taking the format of questions and answers. It thus serves as a lucid introduction to the teachings of Pure Land Buddhism.
