高僧和讃 (親鸞聖人 御作)

世俗の君子幸臨し
 勅して浄土のゆゑをとふ
 十方仏国浄土なり
 なにによりてか西にある

鸞師こたへてのたまはく
 わが身は智慧あさくして
 いまだ地位にいらざれば
 念力ひとしくおよばれず

 高僧和讃 (親鸞聖人 作)
曇鸞和尚 釈文に付けて

Photographs of the historic statue of Shinran Shonin, founder of the Jodo Shinshu school of Buddhism, in front of the New York Buddhist Church. This statue of Shinran Shonin survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, in which 150,000 people died, and 90 percent of the buildings in the city collapsed or burned.

"One cannot turn away unchastened from the blistered statue of Shinran Shonin outside the New York Buddhist Church on Riverside Drive, a figure of gently imposing nobility that somehow survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima." - David W. Dunlap (New York Times, January 25, 2002)
