description: When a piece of cloth is removed from a frame construction on stage, the tree spirit is revealed. It addresses a wandering Buddhist priest: The willow tree . . . has encountered The holy Law, the teaching Of Amida, who guides Even the crooked Straight to Paradise. The spirit hopes that the priest, by reciting the name of the Buddha Amida, will help it attain rebirth in Amida's Western Paradise.
