The meeting of philosopher Wallace Gray and Japanese scholar Eiji Hattori expresses the many encounters of life-of persons, places and things that seem no more than "Winking Fireflies."...Authentic human encounters and Divine-Human encounters may seem to be initially low-wattage and infrequent but taken together they light up our lives and the universe. -- The Reverend Dale W. Robison, Ph.D.

The translator has retained the poetic elegance of the original Japanese throughout these essays, making them a joy to read. -- Sidney Devere Brown, professor, Far Eastern Studies, University of Oklahoma
