Riassunto: In 1979, Maura O'Halloran moved to Japan and became the first woman--and the first foreigner--ever admitted to Toshoji Temple. Three years later, Soshin-san (O'Halloran's monastic name) became a dharma teacher. Although her life was cut short, today she is revered as a Buddhist saint. Through her private and heartfelt journals and letters, O'Halloran eloquently describes the rituals, hardships, and ultimat joys of Zen training and temple life. 2 cassettes.

Dall'audiolibro: The journal and private letters of this young Irish-American woman span the three years during which she studied and trained to become a Buddhist priest in a Japanese temple, with the ultimate hope of establishing a school in Ireland. Mare Winningham's smooth and softly lilting Irish accent creates a compelling intimacy. She draws the reader into the description of sparse daily living and challenges, conveying a strong sense of the inimitable humor and stubborn persistence that allowed Soshin to thrive despite the rigors and deprivations of life as a monk. In the letters home, which are interspersed, Winningham reflects a quiet loneliness and profound sense of purpose. The simple eloquence of this contemplative life is powerfully presented. J.E.M.
