Storytelling with Eth-Noh-Tec, number 5
This episode: Tales by Moonlight!
Livestream on Thursday, Sept. 24, 5-5:30 pm PST
Listen with your Heart in this storytelling of stories from Pan-Asia to Asian America!
In many parts of Northern Asia, stories of the Moon’s alluring and guiding light are told in the Autumn chill. Though officially the Chinese Moon Festival starts on October 1, our celebration of the Moon begins a week early. We will share three of our favorite tales of Lady Moon: The “Tale of Chang’er” (or Lady Moon tale of China), Rabbit on the Moon (a Pan-Asian Buddhist tale) and Monkey Moon (a Tale of Lunar grasping foolishness from Tibet).
This series of online shows is free, but donations of all sizes are gratefully welcomed!

Past episodes include:
Episode 4: “Takashi’s Dream”
In honor of the 75th Anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States, we present our story of one Japanese atom bomb survivor’s journey from revenge to forgiveness.
Episode 3: Monkey King and the Pure Hearts
Foreign travelers cross a border to discover its civilians under a spell… A power hungry despot with a strange addiction… there are children in cages. Is this news from today’s current affairs? No! Eth-Noh-Tec performs an adventure from the famous sixteenth century, Ming Dynasty novel “Monkey King”.
Episode 2: “The Contagion” and “Onions”
This episode presents two stories, one from Tibet which we’ve retitled “Contagion” (adapted from “Boddhichitta”), and one from Korea, “Onions.” Both stories have been handed down from ancient times and distant cultures, yet have much to say about the here and now: epidemics, fear, illusion and assumptions. We share them in hopes of shedding a brighter light upon our journey towards compassion.
