Spirituality in the Anime Blogosphere: First Prayer, Silent Prayer, and 9/11 Prayers

Following a testimony he shared last week, David Gilman-Frederick shares another beautiful story – this time of a most interesting young lady helping with relief efforts in Tohoku.

In remembrance of 9/11, Tenchi provides a list of prayers and thanks and Eugene Woodbury takes the opportunity to educate about mokutou, or Japanese silent prayer.

Alafista.com displays a beautiful picture featuring a Buddhist temple in the foreground and the Tokyo Tower behind, with notes about each.

Though I’m a little late on this, I also wanted to mention Ashita’s recent review of Toaru Majutsu no Index II, which includes a mention of religious issues in the series.

And though not about anime or manga, I just had to share Matthew Hyde’s recent posts about Raiders of the Lost Ark and the real ark’s location and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and how the grail leads to grace.

    1. I’m really digging your blog these days! Those two testimonies were very encouraging to me (and I’m sure others also).

  1. Thanks for the links to my blog – they’re really appreciated. And thanks for the other links you gave – I especially liked the 911 prayer and the testimony from Tohoku. Really powerful writing, thanks for bringing them to a wider audience.
