“This Ambiguous Concept of the Sacred”


I’m reblogging this article because it’s a beautiful, thought-provoking commentary on the Japanese response to disaster in their land (the 2011 earthquake and tsunami) and how this response relates to Shintoism and Buddhism. It also perfectly sums up my own feelings on suffering, character, and transformation.

From Religion and Ethics Newsweekly: Jeffrey L. Richey: Disaster in Japan.
