Summary of the Content of Prof. Hirota’s Workshops:

This workshop will introduce materials designed to help readers interested in understanding what Shinran said in his own words. Through the provided materials, it will be possible to become familiar with important passages from his writings as he wrote them. No prior knowledge of Japanese language is necessary.

During each workshop, we will practice reading sample passages from Shinran with the help of romanization, literal translation, and simple grammar notes. After the workshop, it will be possible to continue using the materials for a number of important passages selected from Shinran’s writings.
