Japanese Monks Use Rock Music to Spread Message

By: for BBC News on July 3, 2013

A group of Japanese monks and pastors are trying to spread the word through music, but not the type of music you might expect from a Buddhist monk.

Reverend Kazuhiro Sekino, the pastor in charge of the Evangelical Lutheran Tokyo Church, has formed a rock band called Boxi.

He said his self-composed lyrics are inspired by daily meditations on life and the human spirit.

Tim Allman reports.
