Contrary to its modern appearance, the building is almost entirely made of natural materials.
Parvathy Baul also subscribes to natural building and sustainable construction, and it is a wonderful interaction between the space and the artist.

4 pm – Concert

5:30 pm – Conclusion

While the program is in English, there will be simultaneous Japanese translation

The Kenjuin temple is a temple of the Jodo sect, with a dedication similar to the Bhakti of Baul.
Some of the last words of Sanatan Das Baul, Master of Parvathy Baul, were
‘Make your life into a prayer. Education may not be accessible to all, but singing is an act of prayer that anyone can do.’
A literary Master and the founder of the Jodo Sect said
‘Please do work in accordance with the mouth with Nanjidamida Buddha, live in the name of that Buddha’.
So while there may be apparent cultural differences, the spirit and thoughts of both practices can lead us deep within ourselves. May this interaction take us to this depth together.
