Excerpted from the preface: In this great river of life that flows endlessly, there were moments of deep feeling when I realized that my life is a gift. Each such moment resembles an eternal spring gushing forth with the joy of "being helped to live and helping others to live." We can live as recipients of life from all others and all else. Striving to live with all, I present this book as a kind of landscape of encounters...a portrayal of thoughts and experiences that call on privileged instants in the process, instants by which I have been coming to encounter myself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A great contribution to the cross-culture exchanges, which support a peaceful coexistence of humans... -- Andrew Targowski, Western Michigan University and President of the International Society for the Comparative Study of Civilizations
Important points are made here on minority expression and the importance of dialogue. -- Dr. Gordon Mercer, professor of political science, director, Public Policy Institute, Western Carolina University
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.
This exquisitely written collection of vignettes allows us to see the West, its cultural monuments, the ideas of its great philosophers, through Japanese eyes. 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
