The Telegraph - Safraz Manzoor
Safraz wanted to do something a bit different. We arranged for him to spend several days under the wing of the head monk at one of the temples on sacred Mt. Koya. As the most important place for Rinzai Buddhism in Japan, Safraz was able to learn more about the way of life in Koya, the beauty of its natural setting and about the contrasts and similarities that it has with the world as far as Osaka and Tokyo. A good read!
