The layout of the website is a bit confusing. If you can’t figure out where to start, the featured articles page is a good starting point.
Head off to the article on “ The Teppou” and you’ll get a taste of the kind of things the website deals with.The article on “ The Rise of Buddhism in Politics and War” is also an interesting read.
I can’t believe that the articles are 100% authentic. As the creators of the website themselves say, “ Nonetheless, inevitably mistakes will be made or reprinted – readers are heartily encouraged to let us know!
