The Shinsei Sutra were five sutra that were widely accepted to have been taught by Shinsei himself, including the Tao of Shinsei. [1]

Sermon on the Path of Purification Edit

According to legend, the "Sermon on the Path of Purification" was the final lesson taught by Shinsei, immediately before he and the Seven Thunders set out into the Shadowlands. This lesson laid out the rules that govern monastic life for the monks of the Brotherhood of Shinsei. It included instructions for abstinence, poverty, and the shunning of politics. He said for his followers to wander Rokugan and spread his philosophy, though they should meet frequently to consider communal issues. These teachings led directly to the establishment of the Great Convocations and the establishment of monasteries. [2]
