    The massive outpouring of consumer products available today might alone lead one to ask "How much is enough?"

    University of Hawaii Press 2017; US$ 65.00

    For close to a thousand years Amida?s Pure Land, a paradise of perfect ease and equality, was the most powerful image of shared happiness circulating in the Japanese imagination.
