Day 6 – Q6: What does the name Illuminati mean?
Reply: Illuminati is Greek for illumination and refers to enlightenment. Light and lightness of being have always been associated with higher states of awareness.

It was originally used to refer to people who were unusually knowledgeable or enlightened about a subject. So a group of individuals who have refined their researches to develop themselves and are sharing their knowledge with others should deserve such a name.

Day 2 – Q2: When did you first hear about the Illuminati festival?
Reply: About 4 years ago, I was teaching Awareness through Movement at the Yoga Center in Ogikubo and just as I arrived for my lesson, crowds of exhilarated people were pouring out of the Museum on the second floor. Frankly I was curious as to why everyone was looking so delighted. They told me it was the “Illuminati”. I didn’t understand what kind of party they had been to but I soon found out.

Day 5 – Q5: Are there many vegetarians in Japan? What percentage of the population are vegetarian in Japan?
Reply: There are no reliable figures as far as I know. If we ask people if they are vegetarian I would guess that less than 1% say they are vegetarian. Though, there are a certain amount of people who avoid eating meat in Japan, as meat is not a traditional food of Japan.
