The filmmaker will be present for the screening & discussion 

Director's Comment : Most people are not aware that numerous Hindu deities are very actively worshipped in Japan. In fact, there are hundreds of shrines to Saraswati alone. There are innumerable representations of Lakshmi, Indra, Brahma, Ganesha, Garuda and other deities. In fact, deities we have practically forgotten in India, such as Vayu and Varuna are still worshipped in Japan.

Sanskrit letters are to be found in practically every home in Japan. The ‘havan’ is conducted in more than 1,200 temples every day in Japan, with Sanskrit chanting.

In many ways, I find that Japan has preserved ancient Hindu traditions, even when they may have changed here in India. A study of Japanese Buddhism also provides missing links in our study of the evolution of Buddhism in its present form in Tibet.
