The Pure Land sect, weare a sohei order that was an extreme wing of the Lotus Shinseism sect.

Founding Edit

Pure Land sect was founded in 1004 in the 96th Great Convocation. [1]

Tradition Edit

The Pure Land Shinseists believed that only through complete devotion to Shinsei could one attain the Pure Land, as they called enlightenment. They were somewhat anti-establishment in outlook, preaching that all men were equal before Shinsei and as such, were popular amongst oppressed peasantry. [2] Their ranks had swelled over the past twenty years or so, and more than a few samurai were nervous about the hordes of armed monks in monastery fortresses across their lands. [citation needed]
