Visitors of the Life Ending Industry EXPO 2017 had an opportunity to see a robotic Buddhist priest celebrating a mass at the Tokyo Big Sight in the Japanese capital on August 25، according to "Press TV".

Multinational telecommunications corporation SoftBank Group showcased its latest invention، a humanoid robot 'Pepper'، which wears a Buddhist robe، taps a drum and chants sutras in a computerized voice. The robot was created in order to substitute unavailable human priests in funeral celebrations.
