Meditation within movement is a million times superior to meditation in stillness—Hakuin Ekaku, referring to Dahui Zonggao

動中工夫勝靜處百千萬倍
Calligraphy by Hakuin Ekaku kept at Ryūtakuji

After more than twenty years in Asia, I currently live in the midst of the Pacific. Religious Studies constitutes my field, my hobby, and my passion.


I am affiliated with the Department of Religion at the University of Hawaii, Mānoa Campus:  http://www.hawaii.edu/religion/faculty/mohr/


In addition to my expertise in East Asia’s religious and intellectual history, I have a broader interest in historical and philosophical issues including universalism and nonsectarian approaches to religious practice. My teaching competence includes Asian religions, Buddhism in particular, with a broader familiarity with philosophy and history of religions. Because Yoga flows in my veins, Indian traditions often inform my research on Japanese or Chinese culture and history.
