The Legacy of Buddhist ModernismBuddhism in Sri Lanka, Nepal and Southeast Asia

Yoshio Sugimoto, "The Legacy of Buddhist Modernism" - Why did the Sri Lankan Civil War Occur? Buddhist Nationalism and the Link Between Religion and Violence

Sri Lankan scholar Ovesekara called the Sri Lankan Buddhism created by Dharmapala "Protestant Buddhism (Reform Buddhism). Sri Lankan Buddhism may give the impression that it is the inheritance of the oldest Buddhism, but in fact it was not, but rather a movement that became active in the 19th century. This book takes a detailed look at the history of how Buddhism and Sinhalese nationalism became linked and led to civil war. In particular, we will take a close look at the life of Dharmapala, as if he were a biography. The book is a unique history of Sri Lankan Buddhism.

Learning from the Bosnian Conflict and the Tragedy of the Rwandan Genocide: International Conflicts after the Cold War

7 recommended reference works to learn about the Rwandan genocide - there was a hell there that made me want to turn away...

The Rwandan genocide is so shocking. It could be a traumatic read. It is such a hell. One can only be horrified that human beings can be so cruel.

I learned about the Rwandan genocide this way because of the Bosnian conflict, but reading these books reminded me that Bosnia, Rwanda, and Somalia are not each unique and abnormal, but that we all have something in our nature that allows such things to happen and that we all could have done it. I was reminded once again that human nature is such that such things can happen, and that we all have the potential to do them.

It is a history that we would like to turn away from, but if we do not pass through it, history will repeat itself in a different form. To prevent this from happening, we must learn about the tragic human history.

The author, Branka Takahashi, is a writer from Serbia. She studied Japanese at the University of Belgrade, where her advisor was the poet Kayoko Yamazaki, whom we have mentioned on our blog.

I would highly recommend it.

Modern Russia and the Russo-Ukrainian War

Kayoko Yamazaki's "Belgrade Diary" - Winner of the Yomiuri Literary Award! Pearls of Words Spun from Life in Serbia after the Airstrikes

What did the author, a poet, see and feel in the city of Belgrade after the Yugoslav conflict and NATO bombing?

The casual, everyday life that continues after the conflict.

In the words that describe the daily life, the shadow of the conflict gradually appears and disappears...

I think this work is very rare in that it captures the daily lives of people who still live there, rather than easy-to-understand "special events. It is a wonder that it does not merely cut out everyday life, but also gives us a sense of the depth of human life.

I thought it was quite plausible that this work won the Yomiuri Literary Award. This work has a mysterious power.

Modern Russia and the Russo-Ukrainian War

Taku Morisumi, "Iraq: Children of the Gulf War" - depleted uranium munitions, which were also used in NATO's air strikes on Yugoslavia - and the ongoing threat of radioactive contamination

In 1999, during the Kosovo War, NATO forces conducted heavy air strikes on Belgrade and Serb settlements on the pretext of "stopping the Serbian genocide. The weapons used were depleted uranium munitions, which cause radioactive contamination in areas where they are fired. These weapons cause radioactive contamination in the area where they are fired. I was shocked to learn that NATO forces were shooting such dangerous weapons in large quantities, and I picked up this book because I thought, "I must know more about the realities caused by these weapons.

This article will discuss the horror of such depleted uranium munitions.
