In July 1991, Satoru Ichijo is about to give a lecture in Tokyo Dome. The media pays attention to him as a "Great Charisma." People who know Satoru recall him. Time goes back to a spring day right before the college graduation, Satoru receives a message from the spiritual world and realizes he has a mission to lead humankind to happiness. While he has constant contact with the spiritual world, Satoru becomes a successful businessman who everyone envies as an elite employee. He publishes "Spiritual Message" books one after another with his family's support and to enlighten the world. One day, spirits tell him an overwhelming mission. "Your mission as the Buddha reborn, is to save all people by spreading the Truth." Satoru tries to rise up to fulfill his mission, but his decision is shaken by the devil's temptation. In solitude, Satoru chooses to live his mission as "Savior", leaves everything behind including his loved one, and steps out onto the stage of Tokyo dome.

Buddhism intro
31 October 2020 | by trimblairSee all my reviews

Asia is taking over the American movie industry. Here is the introduction to their religion. Well made movie, campy special effects but positive message. I'm Christian so a waste of time for me.
