Everything But Nirvana: The Authentic Leadership Journey of a Japanese Buddhist, Shoukei MATSUMOTO

World Shift Actions


The concept of "World Shift" was created by a professor, Ervin Laszlo.

Influenced by the movement overseas, WorldShift Network in Japan was built and the movement is spreading.

Among several events regarding WorldShift, an event called "World Shift Actions" invited me to present "Vision" and "Actions" for the future of Japan.

I presented at the event about my life and vision. It was a great pleasure to have such an opportunity to talk to young students about what I have done in my life as a Buddhist priest.

The theme of my presentation was the standard of choice in our lives.
I cited a phrase in Danmapada "Not to commit any sin, to do good, and to purify one's mind, that is the teaching of (all) the Awakened."
I think this is very important to choose an option according to how we can maintain our heart clean rather than how we can get more money.

Simple, but so important.
