    Koyasan (Mount Koya) is the mountain in Wakayama and was designated as one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in 2004. It is known as the headquarters of the Koyasan sect of Shingon Buddhism since the monk named Kukai settled there 1200 years ago, and still remains an active monastic center. This short documentary captures glimpses of this spiritual and beautiful place through interviewing people who live in this mountain. 高野山には、清澄な空気と水がある。宿坊に泊まり、朝は声明を聴き、日中は美しい自然の中を歩く。身体を鎮める効果のある精進料理を食べて、二日もすると、驚くほどに心と身体は完全に別物になっているのが分かる。今でも地元の人達からお大師様と慕われる弘法大師空海によって開かれてから1200年、遺跡になることもなく、強烈な仏教文化が脈々と息づいていて、他にはない特別なパワーがみなぎっている。心身を浄化し、感覚を研ぎ澄ますことで見えないものを感じる力を得ることができる場所。それが、高野山が今まで、そしてこれからも、そこにあり続ける理由なのかもしれない。一生に一度は訪れるべき天空都市が最も美しく輝く紅葉の時期をとらえた映像と、そこに暮らす人達の核心に迫るインタビューで、その魅力に迫った特別編集版。 【Access】 http://www.wakayama-kanko.or.jp/worldheritage/koyasan1200/ 【Credit】 Director / Producer: Sidecar (Bruce Ikeda + Jun Nishida) www.sdcar.jp Cinematographer: Yayoi Arimoto , Osamu Yotsuya Music: Inner Science Programmer: FUTONE www.futone.org Editor: Osamu Yotsuya Client / Coordinator :和歌山県観光連盟

      • Virtues, Vices and the Environment: Ethics and Ecology in Early Buddhism


        from CSRS / Added

        1 Play / / 0 Comments

        Buddhism is often seen as an ‘eco-friendly’ religion with an expanded moral horizon encompassing not just human beings but also animals and the natural environment. But just how strong are Buddhism's ecological credentials? Is 'Green Buddhism' essentially a modern invention or do ecological values have a foundation in the earliest teachings? Adopting the role of sympathetic critic, Keown will explore the main approaches to this question, and evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. He suggests that while the development of a Buddhist ecology is not as straightforward as it appears at first sight, there are nevertheless grounds for optimism. Dr. Damien Keown is Emeritus Professor of Buddhist Ethics at the University of London, and one of the most eminent scholars working in the areas of theoretical and applied Buddhist ethics today. His writings have helped to define the frames of reference for the field over the last two decades. His works The Nature of Buddhist Ethics and Buddhism and Bioethics, continue to be cited as a ground-breaking monographs. Damien has also published widely in the top journals of Buddhist Studies and Religious Studies.
