What is the reason for this temple decoration? In this age of unbelief about religion, an initiative has been taken to create such an exception to attracting young people to Buddhism. The video of the temple has already been viral in the social media.
Today, on Monday, BBC News reports that the temple was decorated with illumination and rhyme twice a year. Behind the scenes, Goosen Asakura, a DJ priest, He used his DJ skill in it.
Goosen Asakura said, 'I received a lot of feedback from people about this. Received positive and negative two types of reactions. Those who have supported this work, they say that they can feel themselves near the "pure land" of their Buddha. And those who oppose it, they say it should have been serious and calm.
Asakura is working to attract young people to Buddhism, he said. He said, 'I did this as a tune fan. I thought, through the beautiful tune I can highlight the pure land of Buddha to the people. So I added the tune to my work. Illumination is a big thing here. It is said in the holy scriptures of Buddhism that the pure land is such a beautiful place, which is full of extraordinary illumination. In the past, when there was no electricity, people made such an impact. The Buddha was decorated with gold-plated, so that wax light was reflected. I wanted to create that effect with electric technology.
