Meet Boxi, Japan’s new, clergy-led rock band

There’s plenty of Buddhism-and-music talk here on the Horse. Now, add Japanese band Boxi to the list of dharma-music adventurers. (Though it should be noted that the band’s founder is the pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Tokyo Church.)

As Boxi bandmember Reverend Yoshinobu Fujioka says, “It’s just a stereotype that monks have to be quiet all the time. They look calm, but they also have energy. We monks have to pay attention to our dynamic instincts, because they are just different forms of Zen meditation.”

Check out the BBC’s video/story on Boxi here.

Thanks to Konchog Norbu for the heads-up.
