How, according to Shinran and Zonkaku, do we recognize sin? For Shinran, sin is first made known by Amida Buddha. For Zonkaku, sin is something of which beings become self-aware. Amida Buddha's grace transcends one's self-awareness of sin. We should directly experience truth through religious experience, not intellectually like Shinran.
