Jodo Shinshu is a Buddhist teaching that all the people
who say the Nembutsu can be born into the Pure Land through the working
of Amida Buddha's Primal Vow.
Shinran Shonin, through his rigorous practice, sought
to discover what is true and what is truly reliable in this world
filled with falsity.
Ryukoku University asks all persons involved with the university as the spirit of school establishment that they can discern what is true at all times without wavering in falsehood and can grow into true self who disciplines himself by learning Shinran Shonin's life as a guide.
The above is a brief summary of the Jodo Shinshu teaching, that is, the spirit of Shinran Shonin, which serves as the foundation upon which Ryukoku was established in order to learn and follow the teaching.
