    One Minute

    I had an rare opportunity to follow a guild of Buddhist sculptors from a workplace of Busshi, Koun Seki. Also, I had an rare connection to work with Buddhist priests, especially from Shingon (True Word) Buddhism.

    30 Second

    I was also grateful to be able to feature one of Japan’s foremost Busshi, Kourin Saito himself. Grand Master Saito shows not only the craftsmanship, but also the passion and discipline it takes to master this demanding art form.

    15 Second

    I was granted rare access into the life and rites of Buddhist priests, and especially those of Shigon Buddhism Goma Ritual.

    When I explained the import of the film, these priests granted me the honor and privilege of filming from within their altar area, a secretive space within temples that’s usually off limits to anyone outside the priestly class.
