I am a lay Shin Buddhist who relies on Amida but also appreciates the broader range of Mahayana teachings. FYI, I have a Buddhist YouTube channel called “acalaacala” with many sutra recitation uploads and various commentaries. I also have a secondary YouTube channel with the same name as this podcast to which I have uploaded a complete inventory of podcast episodes in video format. That includes those less viewed episodes that have been deleted from this audio-based platform. Namu Amida Buts! 🙏
