Pure Land sect

This Pure Land sect was founded by a monk named Shinran (1173–1263), who simplified Buddhist thought to one essential teaching: all you need to do is repeat the words “namu amida butsu” or “Praise to Amida Buddha”. 

Shinran believed that Amida Buddha had vowed to save all those who sincerely repeated these words.
