Nembutsu for your home altar

Here is an original nembutsus for you to to use for a home altar. The written nebutsu was first introduced by Shinran Shonin when he was teaching the poor in the outer districts of Japan. The people were so poor they could not afford a Buddha statue so the name of the Buddha was written out and took the place of the Buddha statue. In addition the nembutsu is the “Name that Calls” and is the representation of the Grace that attends all of life and is personified in Amida Buddha.  I will load others later.
