The much-awaited 2nd printing of December Fan: The Buddhist Essays of Manshi Kiyozawa, is now available. Translated by Dr. Nobuo Haneda (Maida Center of Buddhism, Berkeley, California), December Fan is a collection of essays written by Reverend Manshi Kiyozawa, one of the most influential Buddhist thinkers in the modern era. He is regarded as the reformer of the teaching of Shinran Shōnin, known as Shin Buddhism or Jōdo Shinshū. With his deep insight into human existence but still with a down-to-earth approach, Kiyozawa beautifully integrated the traditional Shin Buddhist teachings into modern thoughts in these essays. With a new preface and revisions by Dr. Haneda, this new edition is now presented by the Shinshu Center of America.
