Description

This chapter is an overview of the rite for the reception of new members into the Ōtani branch of Jōdo Shinshū (Jōdo Shinshū Ōtani-ha), followed by translations of the sections marked with an asterisk. This rite is known as the Kikyōshiki. Where applicable the translation follows the Service Book of the Higashi Honganji (Shinshū Ōtani ha) of the North America District. The word gāthā means “verses” in Sanskrit, and is used here to correspond to its Japanese transliteration ge, as in Shōshinge.
