This and the following two chapters focus on the teachings of the Ōjōyōshū. This chapter takes up the first two chapters of the Ōjōyōshū, which describes the suffering inherent in the six realms of transmigration and the bliss that awaits all who are born in the Pure Land. The section on the six realms of transmigration includes the most famous section of the Ōjōyōshū: a graphic description of the suffering that await people who are reborn, as the result of their evil deeds, in the eight hells of the Buddhist cosmology.

Keywords:   six realms, transmigration, hell, Buddhist cosmology
