Unlocking Tannisho: Shinran's Words on the Pure Land Path, by Kentetsu Takamori, translated by Juliet Winters Carpenter, Ichimannendo Publishing, 2011 ISBN 978790-471-52.

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?"

I absolutely fell in love with this book as well. The first time I heard the words of Tannisho that "If even a good person can be saved, how much more so an evil person!" I felt a very powerful message yet not so clear. After I read the book, that mesmerizing power of Tannisho was revealed to me in a way unlike any other books I had read on Tannisho. I always had difficulty believing that once you "confess" your sins to a priest, they are "forgiven." So it puzzeled me that with all the sins we commit every day, how could there be any salvation whatsoever for anyone? But after reading this book Unlocking Tannisho, I realized that evil beings are just another name for human beings. No matter how hard we try to avoid evil, we kill many other lives for our own survival whether consciously or unconsciously. I got my answer from this book regaring all the evil energy that I felt I was accumulating. It is so liberating to know this world of no hindrance taught in this book. Thank you for publishing such an amazing book I can apply to my every day life. I must say though, reading the book Something You Forgot along the Way enriched my understanding of Unlocking Tannisho. So perhaps it is a prerequisite to Unlocking Tannisho if you happen to be new to Buddhism. thank you again!

"Unlocking Tannisho" is a clear, concise and beautifully written book, wonderfully translated. As is the case with most Japanese writings I've read, this book can be simultaneously thought-provoking, surprising, amusing and lyrical. It's full of pithy expressions like "Living in a world such as this is like dancing on a live volcano." I find deep philosophical concepts easier to absorb and more calming when they're accompanied by imagery and wit.

This book looks closely at and corrects common misconceptions in the original, 13th-century religious teachings called "Tannisho" ("Lamenting the Deviations"), by Japanese Pure Land Buddhism founder Shinran. "Unlocking Tannisho" looks at Shinran's words and teachings and explains common misinterpretations of them. Because it seeks to explain misinterpretations of a text that itself sought to explain misinterpretations (of a religious belief system), "Unlocking Tannisho" is a little meta. Nevetherless, it's completely clear and an excellent introduction to the concepts of Pure Land Buddhism, which is different from the form of Buddhism we more commonly know in the U.S., Zen Buddhism.

The book itself is constructed gorgeously and includes a glossary, the original Japanese text of "Tannisho," a timeline of PLB and a map of Japan, along with several gorgeous photographs of cherry blossom orchards in the mountains. (Ahhh.) I found the experience of reading this book to be restful and educational, and I would recommend it as a gift. The craftsmanship makes it the kind of book you want to display proudly on a shelf or keep close by on the bedside table.

When I got this book in the mail I opened it up immediately and started underlining the passages that have stuck with me since I first read the text 8 years ago, such as the memorable line "Even if I find I have been deceived by Master Honen and end up falling into hell because of the nembutsu, I have no regrets." I soon regretted my hasty underlining. This book is too beautiful to be touched. The printing, typesetting, and photography are magnificent and there is Japanese calligraphy in the back. It is wonderful that the level of beauty of the book corresponds so perfectly to the beautiful words of Shinran. Mr. Takamori is very lucky to have secured the talents of the estimable translator Juliet Winters Carpenter for his message of salvation and faith.

Don't look any further -- this is the book that will give you Shinran's teachings in a form that it is a pleasure to own and preserve.

I read this book once and thought I got it, but I keep re-reading this book, because it is so deep and intriguing. What I really like about this book is that it is not about the author's personal opinions or interpretations on the famous, Japanese Buddhist book, Tannisho. Rather, it expounds on Tannisho in the most unbiased, definitive, and clear-cut way. When it comes to Buddhism and salvation, I feel like I need to keep referring back to this book.

The Japanese Buddhist scholar, Shinran, struggled to precisely convey the teachings in his native tongue of Japanese. But the teachings apply to all the world, all its languages and all its peoples. Imagine the challenge to exact the same precision of this Buddhist master and convey his message just as effectively without a single nuance lost in translation.

This is just what Japanese Buddhist teacher and author Takamori Kentetsu has done with his book Unlocking Tannisho: Shinran's Words on the Pure Land Path. With the help of English translator Juliet Winters Carpenter, the book has combined the Tannisho, a classic work of Buddhist literature, with Mr. Takamori's expert commentary and analysis.

The arrival of Unlocking Tannisho has finally provided English followers of Pure Land Buddhism a reference book with which to explore Shinran's teachings more correctly, more clearly, and more concisely.
