I am presenting you here, a very good article written by my Dharma friend, Paul Roberts, in which he deconstructs some false statements made by one of the many false teachers of our international sangha - Takamaro Shigaraki.
Please have the patience to read it - I assure you it will be very helpful.
And also please read the discussions about Shigaraki that took place on true shinbuddhism yahoo group
This group is indeed the most active and reliable online place for discussing and understanding the Jodo Shinshu Dharma.
