Zen and the art of magic, amulets and funerals
November 27, 2017 - 13:15-15:00
– introduction to Japanese religion past and present
Public talk by Jørn Borup, Aarhus University
Japanese religion is Zen meditation in mountain monasteries. But it is also funeral business and folk religious rituals, ancient mythologies, nationalistic Shinto and post-3/11 green Buddhism. The lecture will give an overall introduction to some of the many facets of Japanese religiosity, including the crises of contemporary secularization.
