Antique Japanese Gobunsho Ofumi
This is an antique Japanese Buddhism Jodoshinshu sect collection of letters "Gobunsho or Ofumi." In Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, it is an important text that is read at funerals, the first seven days, the forty-ninth day, and the first anniversary of the death. Rennyo VIII, who is said to be the founder of the restoration of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, wrote down the teachings of Jodo Shinshu called 'Gobunsho' or 'Ofumi' in simple sentences to convey them to believers in an easy-to-understand manner. He has left about 80 letters.
