The plaque reads:

Shinran Shonin is the founder of the Jodo Shinsu sect of Buddhism. He developed the doctrine that reveals the one unobstructed way through which we can receive salvation and Buddhahood. This teaching is the torch that lights the way and guides our footsteps through life. This inspiring statue depicts Shinran Shonin in his missionary travel robes, as he appeared through most his life propagating the teaching.

The statue originally stood in Hiroshima at a site 2.5 killometers northwest from the center of the first atomic bomb attack. Having survived the full force of the bomb the statue was brought to New York in September of 1955 to be a testimonial to the atomic bomb devastation and a symbol of lasting hope for world peace.

St. Bartholomew's Church, commonly called "St. Bart's", is a historic Episcopal parish founded in January 1835, and located on the east side of Park Avenue between 50th and 51st Street in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. Here we see the service entrance which still retains much of its original flavor.

I am the resurrection and The life saith the Lord he that believeth in me though he were dead yet shall he live and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
