I like going to the FusimiInariyama.The nature in the FushimiInariyama is very beautiful.There are mountains,valleys,
forests and streams. In the valleys are small a pond. I often think it would be nice to live on a banks of the pond.
Sometimes I go hiking in the FushimiInariyama.It's a nice feeling to be in a mountain forest. The air is clean and it's very peaceful. If I hike to the top of FushimiInariyama, I can get a good view of the surroundings.
The ongoing social unrest from the end of theHeian Period (AD794-1185)
strengthened people's desire for salvation.
Buddhist religious sects which met such desire were born in the Kamakura Period.(AD1185-1333)
Honen started the Jodo Shu Buddhist denomination and taught that whoever believed in the Amida Buddha and earnestly chanted a Buddhist prayer would be saved.
Honen's disciple Shinran(1173/05/14-1263/0 1/19)took the teaching even further and spread it as the Jodo Shinshu .
