This article is focused on Venerable Yin-sun's Thought on Pure Land Buddhism, expounding the relationship between Pure Land Buddhism and Humanistic Buddhism, and discussing his criticism of Chinese Pure Land Buddhism. About his criticism of Chinese Pure Land Buddhism, Ven. Yin-sun was influenced by the aspects of Western academic studies, and inferred that Amita Buddha was connected with sun mythos. This kind of idea would deconstruct the sacredness of the Buddha, and does not take note of the mutual respect between different religious beliefs. Besides that, the teachings of traditional Pure Land Buddhism may not avoid the abuse of becoming a kind of deity worship and lost the spirit of mahāyāna Buddhism. Ven. Yin-sun's criticism of this issue is advisable, however, his expresses are too sketchy and easily misunderstood. Regarding the position of Pure Land Buddhism, according to Indian Pure Land Buddhist texts, Venerable Yin-sun advocated restoring its original status of easy and expedient path, so is to preserve its special practice value. Some ancient masters of Chinese Pure Land Buddhism advocated Mind-only Pure Land and Amita Buddha as Own Nature, confused the expedient path with the truth path, as a result, clouded the meaning of Pure Land Buddhism as easy and expedient path. The hallmark of Ven. Yin-sun's Buddhist thought is Humanistic Buddhism, and the concern of Humanistic Buddhism is embraced in his Pure Land discourses. He criticized the biased views of many Western Pure Land practitioners, who pursued self-transmigration to Western Pure Land and disregarded the practices on earth. Ven. Yin-sun suggested that for the practice of Humanistic Buddhism, the Pure-lands of Maitreya, Aksobhya and Bhaisajya-guru are endowed more meaning. Humanistic Buddhism and Pure Land Buddhism are not mutually contradicted, one important condition to transmigrate to the Western Pure Land is to arise the Bodhi Mind, and the practices of Human-Heaven Vehicle and path of Bodhisattva help promote the status of transmigration in pure land. Ven. Yin-sun pointed oout the contemporary meaning of the combined practice of Pure Land Buddhism and Humanistic Buddhism is to win more approval from the general Buddhist community.
