    MOBI escortgps.co æ 納棺夫日記 eBook ß 納棺夫日記 pdf, 納棺夫日記 MOBIShinmon Aoki writes about his job as a Shin Buddhist mortician He explains how death is a taboo subject and working with the dead is frowned up and dishonorable He explains the different beliefs of Shin Buddhism especially about their belief in death and afterlife Aoki includes beautiful poetry and the way he wrote was just as poetical There are three sections and overall it is a short book I did enjoy it but I lost a bit of interest in the end I think this is the first book of a Mortician from a different culture that we do not know a lot about

    MOBI escortgps.co æ 納棺夫日記 eBook ß 納棺夫日記 pdf, 納棺夫日記 MOBIIt's about death I found the beginning—where he tells the story of the genesis of his work as a mortician—much interesting than the latter parts where he muses philosophically religiously and scientifically about the very final moments of life Can't say that I recommend it But if you're on a death kick why not?

    MOBI escortgps.co æ 納棺夫日記 eBook ß 納棺夫日記 pdf, 納棺夫日記 MOBIThis one is well outside my traditional milieu but well worth the time and patience to experience Aoki's uniue worldview shaped by his work as a Buddhist morticianAny comments I add here about Buddhism the Inconceivable Light or Aoki's inferences or interpretations would fail to capture the serenity of his words so I'll share two passagesIf you go into your line of work thinking it inferior as you perform your duties it shows that you beat within yourself a feeling of inferiority You try to make up for it by doing it for the money As long as you go around thinking there is money to be made from this dirty line of business whatever the job might be people around you will always look down on you for itFor the endstage patient encouragement is cruel reassurance sheer misery and se

    MOBI escortgps.co æ 納棺夫日記 eBook ß 納棺夫日記 pdf, 納棺夫日記 MOBIFor the most part enlightening COFFINMAN is less a daily journal reflecting on death and a series of seasonal treatises observing Shinmon Aoki's life and profession as a journal unto death itselfAoki's personal encounters with the dead dying and mourning conjure an array of profound imagery and critical thinking surrounding the modern functions of religionmythology the human conflict of beginning and end and the role of contemporary Buddhist comprehension The discourse of COFFINMAN crosses paths of religious texts transcendental poetry and even everyday fiction and all in the name of trying to understand how and why people are so anxious about deathThis journal repurposed as book does not consistently dwell on any of the beforementioned subjects to the point where I was truly satisfied Like any other journal most entries are but a taste of what's going on inside the author's head It's transitory And as such many of Aoki's finest writings are interrupted by the r
