International handbook of funeral customs by Kōdō Matsunami( Book )

Information on the various funeral customs in the world, particularly those conducted by people who were acquainted with the deceased. Matsunami (international cultural studies, Ueno Gakuen U., Japan) began collecting the information after he was asked to hold memorial services for fatalities from several major plane crashes, and mediated between survivors of many countries and cultures and the airline companies over appropriate measures to be taken. He considers the continents one by one, and the Middle East and the Commonwealth of Independent States. He describes the legal requirements as well. Indexed only by country and territory.

Introducing Buddhism by Kōdō Matsunami( Book )

This title was originally published in print form by Tuttle Publishing in 1976. This book, as the author explains in his preface, does not attempt to give an exposition of any particular thought from the authoritative point of view. It is rather, a collection of essays on Buddhism as understood by a Japanese student who sets out on a journey in search of his true self. As such ir expresses the author's desire to write a comprehensive book on Buddhism from within - a book that will lead the reader to an understanding of Buddhism as it existed in the past and continues to exist today
