Fudo Myo-O for a good career !

First read the basics about Shusse Daruma :

Daruma for a good career !



At Fukagawa, Tokyo 出世不動尊
(長専院不動寺)
東京都江東区三好1-6-3


This temple was built by the Edo government and belongs to the Jodo Sect of Buddhism.
It was first build on the reclaimed land near the river Kandagawa, but the construction on the unstable land was difficult.
At that time the priest at the Temple Mii-Dera in Omi had a dream about the Fudo Statue in his temple: Fudo appeared in his dream and told him, he should be carried off to Edo to help build the temple.
So they did and put his statue in a contemporary building close to the construction site. Now the building was finished without much more problems and the statue had come to be called "Fudo for a good career".
In 1653, after the great earthquake, the temple was relocted to the present position and the statue now is called: "The Career Fudo from Fukagawa".

The original temple was built more than 1200 years ago by Chishoo Daishi Enchin 智証大師, but now the small building amongst the scyscrapers is all that remains. It was later relocated here to protect the Hitotsubashi Family of Daimyos.
It is still very popular with the sumo wrestlers to pray here for a good career.
