Do you believe in a religion?

June 28th, 2008


I believe in religion. Now, there are many religions such as Christianity, Buddhism and Islam all over the world. Obirin university is Christianity.  I believe in it also.  When I was a child, I went to a Catholic Kindergarten. Every morning and before meals, I always prayed to God and said “amen”. I have believed in God would help me since I was a child. Fortunately Obirin has Chapel Hour. There we can hear good ideas related to the Bible. I think it is a good opportunity to think about God.
When I went to Paris, I experienced a Mass in “Notre-Dome”. Many French and people from other countries were there. It was a moving sight. Many people believe in God.

I believe in fate

June 27th, 2008

I will be 20 years old this year. Its considered to be adult in Japan. I have lived by now without big matter.

Sometimes, I think all of my life is fate. I was born in Tokyo, and now I am university student. I have a great family and relative. I have met many people by now. All of them gave me some influence. I think all of things is an accident, but it is fate. I have impressed apecific news, music, scenecy and of course people. Its because of I was born in this generation.

“Ichigoichie(????)” is compound word. That means everything as if it were a once in a lifetime chance. It is my favorite word and I always keep my side. I meet someone, and possibly I will never have meet again. I think all encounter is fate, So I want to feel precious.


Me believing in two religions

June 27th, 2008


I was born in Laos. Many Laotians are buddist. But for me, I think I believe in Buddism and Christianity.

Believing in two religions is not a problem for me, because I can learn the good points from each religion. I do believe in Buddism same as my parents. We always went to the temple to pray on new year day. We payed our respects and pray to Budda images at the temple, and we also have one at home. So, we can pray by ourself at home when we dont have time. But, I also believe in Christianity. The reason why i can say that i believe in Christianity is when I was a child I sometimes went to church on Sunday to pray, and also went to celebrate Christmas every year. Beside, everytime when I wish things to become true, I always pray and look up to the sky and say ” PLEASE” . Which means ” God please help me”, and it always comes true.
