If there was ever an article that would have benefitted from a photo, this is it.

Sounds impressive.

"The calligraphy reveals her soul which is as pure as the Buddha's. I want as many people as possible to see it," said Koshi Kimiya, the 40-year-old chief priest at Ryoun-ji temple in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture, which shows Kanazawa's work.

I'd love to see it, too.

Thank you Shoko Kanazawa.

But Japan Buddhism doesn't have 12 signs horoscopes like China and Nepal. There are hundreds of different Buddhism in Nepal alone, almost all for the business. Monks are so rich with their own big houses and lands with free food, free accommodation, free travel.

But Buddhism is part of Hinduism, i found out after watching both Japanese films 1979 Nichiren and 1984 Kukai.
