Description

The martial arts of Japan have been strongly influenced by the meditation practices of Zen Buddhism. Though Japan is not a very religious country, the ancient Buddhist traditions still influence society. This video, filmed in Japan, looks at the connection between Buddhism and day-to-day activities and the value of meditation for our own lives.
