BUSTLE: Ruth Ozeki On 'A Tale For The Time Being': We All Have A Buddhist Nun Inside Us

I like to think we all have our own inner Jikos, the archetypal character who serves as a moral compass. She’s very much a part of our folklore — both our public folklore and our inner folklore. So I think that’s why people like her: they recognize her, because we all have one.
