While visiting the temple of Tsukiji Honganji in Tokyo, Japan, my wife and I picked up some nice Buddhist gifts, when I noticed something on the shopping the bag. The words were:
Asa ni reihai
Yū ni kansha
This means “worship in the morning, gratitude in the evening” based on my own poor translation. I think this is a wonderful summary of the Jodo Shinshu daily practice because in the morning one may show veneration and worship to Amida Buddha before starting the day, but by night we reflect in gratitude on the life we’ve lived, for better or worse.
