Lecture by Professor John Nelson from the University of San Francisco

September 27, 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Manoa Campus, Sakamaki A302

Title: "Experimental Buddhism in Contemporary Japan" _______________________________________________ What's a good Buddhist priest to do when faced with the profound challenges of late modernity and persistently unfavorable opinions about religion in his own society? Declining temple membership, increasing secularism, and negative public opinion that sees Buddhism as having little relevance all add up to a "perfect storm" threatening the future of mainstream Japanese Buddhism. Based on a forthcoming book (fall 2013), this presentation will advance the concept of "experimental Buddhism" while profiling some progressive Buddhist priests trying to reboot their roles as religious specialists and the services they provide through their temples.
