“Rurouni Kenshin” Modern “Ken” learned from the way of life of Himura Kenshin.
“It’s not the” sword “that creates the era, but the” people “that handle it.” These are the words of Kenshin Himura, the main character of “Rurouni Kenshin -Meiji Kenkaku Romantan-,” which supported the golden age of Weekly Shonen Jump.

The skill of reading sutras is a gift of discipline! How to practice the Buddhist priest’s Buddhist chant on your iPhone
“The monk who came to the funeral was not good at reading sutras!” It seems that funeral companies often receive such complaints. Monks who are not good at reading sutras may be rumored in the shadows. Even in the situation grasp survey conducted by the Buddhist sect, the quality of “reading sutra” is ranked high as expected from the monks. The hurdles that the world demands from monks, such as personality, abundant knowledge, and simple life, are high.
