Event Details:  Fascinating Point】

“Japanese Buddhism” and its relations to people’s spirit & daily life

In this workshop, participants will have the chance to learn some clues of the way of life and get a brief glimpse of Japanese lifestyle based on the spirit of harmony.

Haven’t you wondered why Japanese Buddhist priest can eat meat? This is because Japanese Buddhism does not discern the life of animal and vegetable. This is well reflected on Japanese common phrase “Itadakimasu” which is called before the meal. It can be literally translated as “I am taking your life.” This is an expression of remorse and gratitude for all lives of foods that became our sacrifices. No one can survive without something life sacrifice. Accordingly, Japanese Buddhist priest can eat everything to not waste their sacrifice.

In addition to this question, didn’t you wonder why Japanese priest can marry and drink? This workshop will clarify these kinds of question through lecturer’s personal stories, and you will learn the reality of Japanese Buddhist priest. You can ask the lecturer any questions about Buddhism and Buddhist culture. Why don’t you deepen your understanding of Japanese culture based on Buddhist spirits? Please feel comfortable joining to the workshop!
