EXPERIENCE BUDDHIST SUTRA COPYING

EXPERIENCE BUDDHIST SUTRA COPYING

To deepen understanding of Japanese culture, the Kagoshima International Exchange Foundation will invite monks from Kojoji Temple and hold this event.
Would you like to take a break from your busy daily life and refresh yourself with self-reflection?
Then, this will be a great opportunity!
Try "shakyo (写経)", the practice of hand-copying Buddhist sutras by carefully writing each letter.
A sutra is a religious text or excerpt from Buddhist teachings, and copying the text by hand is thought to heighten awareness and calm your mind.
