A short talk with Abbot Shucho Takaoka on his work during funerals. I had just seen the movie Departures, which I recommend very strongly, and it deals with this topic. I asked him about it.
(Takaoka was mentioned in many chapter of A Different Kind of Luxury. He inspired many of the people in the book. Please read about him in the book to find out more.)
