Professor Jeff Wilson was asked to speak on New England Public Radio, discussing parents who are adopting a Buddhist ritual to mourn miscarriage and abortion. “Kuyo rituals are an ancient format of Japanese Buddhist practice. But kuyo for mizuko, for a departed child spirit, so far as we can tell, really only goes back to the post-World War II situation,” explains Professor Wilson. You can read the transcript of the interview or listen to it on the New England Public Radio website.
