The Shin Buddhist Creed
I rely on Amida Buddha, with my whole heart, for the attainment of Nirvana.
I give up trust in my powerless self, and abandon all practices that rely on the false ego.
I know that because of Amida's Boundless Compassion, I am assured of re-birth the very moment I put my trust in him.
I call his Name, Namu Amida Butsu, in happiness and thanksgiving for the gift of his Universal Vow.
I am grateful to Shinran Shonin and his followers for leading me to this profound teaching.
I will try to live, throughout my life, according to the way of Nembutsu that they have taught.
