Piggy Censer


On June 16, I stayed at the official residence of Seicho-No-Ie Head Temple in Nagasaki prefecture. On the tatami mat of the corridor of the residence I found this pig-shaped mosquito-coil hanger. It looked familiar and made me feel a little nostalgic. I briefly recalled my boyhood when I used a similar-shaped hanger while studying or reading. Nowadays, we rarely see this type of hanger. I liked the color combination, too.

Taniguchi Sensei,

volumes 19 e 20 of "Truth of life" (Seimei no Jisso, autobiography of Dr. Masaharu Taniguchi) have not been translated into portuguese, spanish or english, so far.

Do you intend to provide such translation?

Reverence,
