To the World！
Multi Language Project
Heart of Buddha (Busshin)
Until 2020, volunteers individually translated and subtitled the YouTube channel "One Question One Answer" by Osho Taigu into a language other than Japanese, but this time, a volunteer translation team, 'Osho Taigu Mind Translation Club' was officially launched. From the start of the team in February 2021 to the present, more than 150 volunteers across the world have gathered, and more than 60 people have already started activities. (As of April 2021)
In parallel with the production of multilingual subtitles, the team is also making a dictionary of 'Busshin' (Heart of Buddha) to make the translation content consistent. By working as a team, we can help each other and produce higher quality subtitles. Currently, five support members are working hard to manage the team.
All the members are participating with great compassion that people all over the world who have troubles and sufferings will be able to find hints for solving the problem and turning suffering into hope by listening to the story of Zen Buddhism by Osho Taigu.
The translation team "Osho Taigu Mind Translation Club" is the precious Sangha connected by mind, heart and Buddhist faith. We hope that the members will come together and expand the "ring of Busshin (Heart of Buddha)" to as many people as possible.

We hope that our club will become a place for people with great compassion to foster new relationships, away from the workplace, home, friends and acquaintances we meet in everyday lives and completely away from the gain and loss games.
We wish that we can provide an opportunity for people with great compassion to be connected by heart, mind and Buddhist faith. We pray that as many people as possible will come together and expand the “ring of Busshin (Heart of Buddha)” to as many people as possible.
“We are not alone.” “We have a connection with someone somewhere in the world somehow.”
It makes us feel less lonely when we know that there are friends in various places who have a heart-to-heart connection, not because of gains. We hope that we will provide the opportunity to meet such friends, who will be connected loosely yet surely, by heart, mind and Buddhist faith. This can be our emotional safety net especially when our life is not kind to us.
As in Miyuki Nakajima’s song, we don’t know where we were born and where we have lived. But now, here, the ties are connected, they become bonds, they warm someone, they comfort someone, they can help someone, and a single thread gathers to form a blanket that wraps around someone.
You don’t have to be or do anything special.
It can be a broken thread, a jerky thread, an incomprehensible thread, an ordinary thread, or any thread is welcome.
What we only ask is compassion. That’s more than enough. We wish you will join us.
If you are interested please fill out this form.
We look forward to hearing from you soon. Till then……
