Shinto Kagura is distinct from the court kagura and instead features older ritual styles similar to that performed at Shinto shrines. This style of music involves the preparation of a shinza or place of worship to which the gods are invited. A priestess or miko is central to the ritual which is generally performed on winter evenings.

Mokujiki and his Fudo 木喰の不動さま

(1718-1810)



This file moved to the BLOG of Enku 円空
January 2012

. Welcome to Master Carver Enku 円空 ! .



:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


Saint Mokujiki was born in Marubatake in 1718. He converted to Buddhism when he was 22 years old, and received his ordination with the name Mokujiki at the temple Rakanji in Tokiwa at the age of 45.
Mokuji underwent a type of severe ascetic training that does not allow the consumption of grains, fish, boiled food and salt. He kept to the rules of this training for his entire life.

He went on a pilgrimage throughout Japan until he was 93, and carved more than 1000 Buddist images during this time.

In his old age, when he had passed 80 years, he realized that people need something king and gentle to become kind themselves.

「みな人の心を丸くまんまるに  
どこもかしこも丸くまん丸」

"Peoples hearts need to be all round,
everything needs to be all round and smooth!"

He then started carving Buddha statues with the special smile on their faces, for which he is now so famous. The smile and roundness makes his statues so different from the ones of his fellow Enku.

From temple Enzoo-Ji, Joetsu Town, Niigata
木喰上人は、俗姓を伊藤といい、享保3年山梨県に生まれ、22歳で仏門に帰依し、その後45歳で木喰戒(火食を絶ち、五穀をさける)を受け、92歳でこの世を去るまで、5度の日本回国を行いました。
この仏像は、文化3年円蔵寺で彫られたものです。上人は、昼、寺に集まる人々の病気や苦悩の相談相手となり、夜は黙々とナタをふるい、一夜に最高3体を刻んだと言われています。

Fudo Myo-O Statue

Quoted from Maha Kala.com

FUDO-MYOO or O FUDOSAN

Sanskrit Seed: KAN
Sanskrit Seed: UN
Name: Acala-vidyaraja
+ God of Fire +
Acalanatha means "Immovable"



"Some also say Fudo is the Hindu God Shiva. Flames in background said to represent the purification of the mind; in Kamakura, Fudo is enshrined at Joju-in and Myoo-in. Others say flame behind Fudo originated from the vomit of the mythical Karura."

"Personification of Dainichi Nyorai; best known of the five, and one of the main deities of the Shingon sect. Converts anger into salvation; furious, glaring face, as Fudo seeks to frighten people into accepting the teachings of Dainichi; carries "kurikara" or devil-subduing sword in right hand (also represents wisdom cutting through ignorance); holds rope in left hand (to catch and bind up demons); often has third eye in forehead (all-seeing); often seated or standing on rock (because Fudo is "immovable" in his faith).

In sculpture, Fudo is often flanked by two attendants, Kongara Douji and Seitaka Douji. "


This is quoted from a long illustrated list of Buddhist deities and other information on Buddhism.

Singing Bowls of the Himalaya Region



The history of the Singing Bowls is quite mysterious. Some say that they were in use during the time of Shakyamuni Buddha, over 2500 years ago, in the indigenous communities of the Himalaya, while others speculate even earlier origins. The theory and practice revolving around the Bowls involves refination, geomantik perception, chakra healing, invocation, prayer, mantra, and astral projection.

They speak of the unified field of quantum physics, the tantric doctrine of vibration and the harmony of the spheres. The higher quality Bowls seem to have a particularly healing effect on the chakras, massaging in a sense the subtle energy channels of the light body in a way that relaxes both both body and mind, restoring a peaceful balance to the individual in relation to the environment, and heightening awareness. There is a magik about them that is impossible to describe outside of the singularity of the moment in which they are played.

Mikamo Fudo Son

[ . BACK to DARUMA MUSEUM TOP . ]
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 
Mikamo Fudo Son みかも不動尊
Tochigi Prefecture, Fujioka Town

Including other Fudo to wash your money



This statue is outside and people pour water over it when making a wish. They also wash their money, a custom usually associated with Benten (Zeni-arai Benten 銭洗い弁天, for example in Kamakura). You wash some money, coins or paper, dry them properly and put them back in the purse. You then have to spend that money within a week, and it will come back to you in double, triple and even more ... if you wash it properly. Below are some more of these money-and-water-friendly Fudo statues.

みかも不動尊には、「銭洗い不動尊」もあります。

よく、弁天様は見かけたりしますが、お不動さまの銭洗いは珍しく思い紹介させていただきました。
お不動さまの霊験あらたかな銭洗いです。みなさんも、御祈願してみてください。ひょっとしたら・・・

At this temple there is also a special statue of Jizo.

Zeni-Arai Benten at Kamakura :
Zeniarai Benten

... there are a handful of devout worshipers, mostly merchants, who deeply revere the Shrine and wash bundles of 10,000-yen (roughly US$80) bills. (As noted above, zeni means coins, not paper money.) In fact, hundreds of torii gate appearing near the entrance of the Shrine were donated by those merchants who believe their wealth was brought by virtue of the power of Ugajin here.

Those merchants come visit here every month on the Day of Serpent by all means to attend the rituals held by the Shrine. Police warns car-drivers not to drive into the neighborhood on weekends and the Serpent Days in particular. Most crowded is the first Serpent Day of the year, which usually falls on an early February day and Benten Festival takes place.

A comment from Mark Schumacher on the subject

Curious that Fudo is associated with the money-washing tradition.

Benzaiten, a goddess of fortune, is easy to understand. She is always located near water (river, pond, lake, ocean). She is associated with the NAGA (serpents and dragons), who guard treasure.

But why Fudo? His real symbol is fire. His aureole is almost always the flames of fire. He is also the main honzon for GOMA , a fire ceremony still popular today in which defilements are symbolically burnt away.

So why would people wash money under Fudo's protection? Because he washes away impurities, kanna? Hmmm. Does not sound right. Maybe, perhaps, because drawings of Fudo show him standing on a rock rising from the sea?

For example, the drawing at Daigoji, Kyoto, and the famous 1282 drawing by Shinkai of Fudou standing on a rock rising from the sea. Moreover, Kurikara, a dragon wound around a sword, may appear in paintings of Fudou.
Also, both Kurikara and Fudou are found often near ascetic places of religious practice, such as small waterfalls. Perhaps this is the reason.

For much more on Fudo iconography and history in Japan,
please see the JAANUS page.

Meaka Fudo

[ . BACK to DARUMA MUSEUM TOP . ]
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Me-aka Fudo, the Red-eyed Fudo 目赤不動

One of the Fudo with five different eye-colors of Edo. For LINKS, see below.
Temples to these five Fudo were constructed by the third Shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu to protect the town of Edo.
Meaka Fudo was called as Akame Fudo before it was moved to Hon-Komagome 駒込. Iemitsu had the Meaka Fudo installed at Do-Zaka 道坂 on the way to his grounds for hawk hunting.

The color red was associated with the element fire.

Recapitulate the basics of the five colored Fudo.

Below is also the Red Fudo, Aka Fudo.

At Temple Nankoku-Ji 南谷寺



南谷寺

当寺は不動尊をもって廻国していた伊賀赤目山の住職満願が元和年間(1615-24)に下駒込村動坂で庵を結んだことに始まる。寛永14年(1637)鷹狩の折にこれを目にとめた三代将軍徳川家光が、現地に寺地を与えたという。
本尊の不動尊は目赤不動と呼ばれ、江戸の五色不動の一つで、既に十七世紀末から十八世紀前半の案内記で名所として取り上げられている(「江戸名所記」他)。

五色とは青・黄・赤・白・黒で梵語で言う地・水・火・風・空をあらわし、家光がこの五色不動の目として東西南北中央の五方眼で江戸を守るために五色不動を設定したという説がある(夏山雑談)。しかし実際には色と方角が一致せず、目黄不動が3ヶ所もあるなど、この説には疑問も多い。

目赤不動尊は、 もとは赤目不動尊と言われていた。 元和年間(1615~24) 比叡山の南谷(みなみだに)に万行律師がいて、 明王を尊信していた。ある夜、伊勢国(三重県)の赤目山に来たれとの夢見があり、赤目山に登り、 精進を重ねていた時、虚空から御声があって、一寸二部の黄金造りの不動明王像を授けられた。

赤目山を下り、比叡山南谷の庵室に安置した。しばらくして「黄土衆生の志願を起こし」関東に向かい、下駒込(いまの動坂)に庵を結んで、万民化益を祈念した。参詣の諸人は奇瑞を得て群参した。

寛永5年(1628)、 三代将軍家光が鷹狩りの途中、 立ち寄り、「御徳御尋になり由来を言上したところ、府内五不動の因縁を以て赤目を目赤と唱へる様にとの上意が」あり、 現在の地を賜った。

後に、寺院を建立して、智證大師作 不動明王を御前立に安置した。以後、目赤不動尊として、 「年を超え月を重ねて利益日々に著しく参拝の諸人絶えること」がない。 としています。




目赤不動 駒込浅香町にあり。伊州〔伊賀国〕赤目山の住職万行(まんぎょう)和尚(満行、?~一六四一)、回国のとき供奉せし不動の尊像しばしば霊験あるによつて、その威霊を恐れ、別にいまの像を彫刻してかの像を腹籠(はらごも)りとす。
将軍家光と関連し、最初は「赤目不動」であったのが、「目赤不動」になったとします。そのきっかけは、「府内五不動の因縁を以て」(縁起)、「目黒、目白に対して」(江戸名所図会)として、五色不動設定との関連を示します。堂には、上のような平成7年の大きな奉納額があり、いまもって不動信仰のなみなみならぬものを告げています。

Aka Fudou - The RED FUDO 赤不動



The chief of the Five Great Myoo and the Eight Great Myoo.

He appears in wrath; vanquishes all evil and renders virtue, making trainees decide to attain enlightenment. He has the power to make people attain enlightenment with the wisdom of Buddha. He was called Fudou (immobile) because he never moves in the perfect spiritual state of concentration in fire, vanquishing all kinds of sins. He appears in a child style; hanging down a pigtail of hair over his left shoulder with his left eye shut thin sitting on the rock. He also holds a sword of wisdom in his right hand, a rope in his left subduing earthly desires of ordinary people.

There exists the iconography of Esoteric Buddhism in Giki (the book of secret ritual practice), however, many of them are created freely. He was attended by Kongara Douji and Seitaka Douji. Gurikara Fudou appears not in Myoo, but a dragon (Gurikara Myoo) coiling itself around the sword of wisdom thrusting on the rock and trying to swallow the sword from its top. The color of the skin of Fudou Myoo is generally the one of ditch mud's explaining that he saves ordinary people living in the indecency world, however, yellow, red, or blue Fudo Myoo are sometimes worshipped.

It was originally opened at the time Kukai founded Koyasan enshrining as a central deity and image of Godai Myoo. The image was lost to a fire in 1631, however, and presently there is enshrined a painting of a red Fudo Myoo said to have been painted by Chisho Daishi Encho. He used red mineral pigments mixed with his own blood.

近畿三十六不動尊霊場三十五番札所・日本三不動一番札所・壇上伽藍鬼門鎮護の五大堂

日本三不動のひとつとして知られる赤不動明王を本尊としてお祭りしています。

本尊の赤不動明王は、いわゆる感得像で、赤い身色の不動明王を二童子と共に描いた画幅です。弘法大師の甥に当たられる方で、後に天台の座主にもなられる智証大師円珍和尚が、修行中に感得した不動明王の姿を、その余りの有り難さに自分の頭を岩に打ち付け、岩絵の具に頭血を混ぜて写しとられたと言われています。

赤不動明王は平安の昔より庶民に尊崇され厚い信仰を集めていたようです。例えば平安・戦国・江戸太平の頃…と高野山への帝・皇族・貴顕紳士の御登山は数多ありますが、明治維新以降、廃仏の嵐の中も不動尊信仰の濤は世に息むこと無く、天皇皇后両陛下をはじめ、各宮家や多くの華族が赤不動明王に礼拝供養されました。海外からも多数ご参拝頂いた様子で、大正時代の「高野山時報」にはスウェーデン皇太子御登山、として以下のような記事が載っています。

Quted from Mark Schumacher:

RED YOUTH 赤童子, AKADOUJI
(text courtesy JAANUS)

Literally "Red Youth." Also often called Kasuga Akadouji 春日赤童子.
A mysterious human figure said to have appeared on a rock immediately in front of the Kasuga 春日 Shrine gate. He often is shown as a youth, douji, colored red, aka, standing on a rock, and leaning on a staff. In certain poses both in paintings and in prints, Akadouji resembles Kongoudouji 金剛童子, one of the attendants of Fudou Myouou 不動明王.

His connection with Kasuga is obscure, but he has been identified with Ame-no-Koyane 天児屋根, the God of the Third Sanctuary there; with Jinushi gami 地主神, the land god; with a healer's helping spirit; and with a thunder god of Mount Mikasa 御蓋, which stands behind the shrine at Kasuga. Extant images date from the Muromachi to Edo periods.
