Welcome to our six-week online video course with Dharmavidya David Brazier, a psychotherapist and head of the Amida Order, an international Pure Land Buddhist community. With a background in both Soto Zen and Pure Land Buddhism, each week Brazier will be leading us through six foundational teachings of the Pure Land path. This week he begins with an explanation of “other-power,” as well as reasons why, even if you are not a Pure Land practitioner yourself, it is well worth your time to learn about the world’s most-followed Buddhist tradition.
