    it was an interesting read but basically can just read the epilogue which contains the draft messages for western museums & eastern temples & know all you need to about the book (ie the swastika has 2000 years of history & isn't a symbol of evil, Hitler's symbol should be called a "hooked cross" & not a swastika, keeping this ancient symbol free from the hatred that Hitler brought to it). it was an interesting read but basically can just read the epilogue which contains the draft messages for western museums & eastern temples & know all you need to about the book (ie the swastika has 2000 years of history & isn't a symbol of evil, Hitler's symbol should be called a "hooked cross" & not a swastika, keeping this ancient symbol free from the hatred that Hitler brought to it).

    I enjoyed this book. It tells about the traditional meaning of the manji, whose meaning was abducted and twisted by Hitler. This book would be a great resource book for Shorinji Kempo students.
