Doubt as Two Minds By Rev. Dr. Takashi Miyaji

“In this episode, we will look at the Jodo Shinshu stance on the issue of Capital Punishment. In doing so, we will look at the issue of ethics in general. In the second half, we will look at doubt defined as “two minds” or the “wavering mind” as well as talk about what doubt is directed towards. “
