SISTER CLARE CARTER
“Buddhism in the Modern World”

Sister Clare Carter is a member of the Nipponzan Myohoji Japanese Buddhist order, which focuses on healing modern civilization from materialism and violence by bringing human beings back to their spiritual foundations. The basic practice of the order is walking, beating a prayer drum, and chanting the prayer Namu-myoho-renge-kyo in order to bring peace into the world. Following this teaching, she has participated in many local and regional walks, and in some international walks such as the Interfaith Pilgrimage for Peace and Life from Auschwitz to Hiroshima (1995), and retracing the journey of the trans-Atlantic slave trade in the Interfaith Pilgrimage of the Middle Passage (1998-1999).
