Hibutsu 秘仏 secret statues

Secret Buddha Statues are enshrined in special tabernacles called zushi 厨子 and are shown at regular intervals to the public. Some are shown every year, others every seven, seventeen, thirtythree or hundred years only. Some are never shown.
This can be a replica of the original hidden statue or a different one altogether.

Usually a substitute statue ("stand before it" maedachi 前立) is placed in front of this tabernacle and can be venerated in prayers at any time.

Statue of Fudo Myo-O and two attendants -
hibutsu
secret statue, shown only once a year.



Important cultural property 重要文化財

The Statue is 109 cm high and made from hinoki 檜 cypress wood.
It stands on a Stone Pedestal (iwaza 岩坐)

 不動明王は、身の丈109センチの檜(ひのき)の一木造りで岩坐の上に立っておられる。頭の髪は、頂で蓮華(れんげ)の花型に結(ゆ)い、前髪を左右に分けて束ね、左肩から垂らす。腰には短い裳(も)をまとい、腰紐で結ぶ。このお姿から、印度の古代の田舎の童子の髪の結い方や服装がうかがわれる。  
額にしわをよせ眉をさかだて、左の目は半眼に右目はカッと見開く。いわゆる天地眼(てんちがん)で、左の上牙で下唇を右の下牙で上唇をかみしめ、忿怒相(ふんぬそう)をしている。不動信仰の厳しさを感じさせられる。
 全身の動きは少なく、重厚さの中に穏やかさを感じさせ、貞観彫刻から藤原彫刻への移行がみえる。
旧法勲寺(ほうくんじ)(飯山町)から移されたと伝えられている。

Strong relation ship to the daimyo regent of Kagawa,
Ikoma Chikamasa 生駒親正 (1526 - 1603)
and priest 良純上人.

The present-day priest is the 17th in a long family tradition.
He is a very open man and holds music events and yoga lessons at the temple.
He often walks around in blue-jeans to show he is just another simple person.

弘憲寺は今から1300年前の天平時代、現在の香川県綾歌郡飯山町に法勲寺というお寺がありました。その後現在の高松に移された。法勲寺では、白鳳期から平安時代にかけての瓦が出土するとともに、「吾妻鏡」に見えることから鎌倉時代までは確実に存在していた。その後、縁起によれば廃寺となり、本尊、霊宝を近くにある島田寺に移したという。天正15年(1587)生駒親正が讃岐に国主として入ることにより、大きな転機を迎えた。

 縁起では、「生駒親正は、讃岐が空海の誕生地であることから、密教に帰依するとともに、島田寺の良純を敬って、法勲寺を再建して良純上人に寺務を執らせた。
慶長8年(1603)2月13日に親正(謚弘憲公)が没すると高松西浜(現在錦町)に葬られる。同年、親正公の息子一正により、法勲寺が親正公の塚上に移され、弘憲寺と称するとともに、良純を住職とした。この時、島田寺領50石を弘憲寺に付すとともに、古画、名器をうつし、島田寺を弘憲寺の末寺とした。この時より、良純上人を初代住職として弘憲寺が開山される。

 良純上人没後、二代目の住職となったのが 宥遍上人である。縁起によれば、大力の持ち主として知られ、高野山浄菩薩院の住職であった。嵯峨大覚寺法親王が高野山に遊学したとき宥遍上人を師と仰いだ。これを縁として寛永13年に上人の号を授かるとともに、法親王が後水尾天皇の皇子だったことから、宥遍上人は天皇から七条袈裟を賜っている。寛永19年生駒家は出羽国(秋田県)矢島に国替えになり、寛永19年、新藩主として松平家に入封する。弘憲寺は松平家から領内で弘憲寺のみに降雨の祈祷が命じられ、郡奉行や郷方役人が寺に詰めたと記されている。また、一群一ヶ寺のみ選ばれる五穀成就の祈祷も仰せつけられ、松平政権下においても、重要な役割を担っていた。
現在の住職で17代を数える 。

Ikoma Chikamasa 生駒 親正
(1526 – March 25, 1603)
Japanese daimyo during the Azuchi-Momoyama and Edo periods around the turn of the 17th century. His father was Ikoma Chikashige. Chikamasa was appointed one of the three chūrō (arbiters) by Toyotomi Hideyoshi.



In 1566, he became a retainer of Oda Nobunaga when he attacked Mino Province. He worked under Hashiba Hideyoshi (Toyotomi Hideyoshi) from then on, and was involved in various battles such as the Battle of Nagashino, the battle against Ishiyama Hongan-ji and the battle against the Saika party at Kii Province. In 1582, he served Hideyoshi after Nobunaga died, and was active in several battles such as the Battle of Yamazaki, the Battle of Shizugatake, the Siege of Odawara, and the Battle of Bunroku. He was given lands in Sanuki Province yielding 171,800 koku of rice because of his service. In Hideyoshi's last years, Ikoma Chikamasa, Nakamura Kazuuji, and Horio Yoshiharu were appointed to the position of chūrō under Toyotomi.

In 1600 at the Battle of Sekigahara, Chikamasa was part of Ishida Mitsunari's force while his son, Ikoma Kazumasa was part of Tokugawa Ieyasu's force. Chikamasa remained at Sanuki and sent his retainers in his stead to attack Tanabe castle in Tango Province. He chose this strategy to preserve the Ikoma clan regardless of which side prevailed. Because Kazumasa fought in Ieyasu's force, Ieyasu allowed Chikamasa to rule his existing domain after the battle, but Chikamasa took responsibility for fighting on the losing side by transferring the headship of the family to Kazumasa.
He became a priest and withdrew to Mount Koya.

He was soon permitted to return to Sanuki Province. In 1603, he died in Takamatsu castle.

Sweets for the Bride (oiri おいり, o-iri お入り)
This custom started in the Edo period around 1587 when the first lord of Sanuki, Ikoma Chikamasa 生駒親正公, had them made for the bride, using five colors, pink, yellow, orange, white and light blue.

- quote
kouhai 光背
Halo found on Buddhist images, representing light said to be emitted by the Buddha *gokou 後光. In sculpture, a wooden or metal kouhai was attached to the back of the figure, sometimes decorated in openwork *sukashibori 透彫.

Kouhai were used in Japan from the Asuka period, usually made of bronze or gilt bronze, and were named according to their shape and design. One of the earliest examples is the halo on the Shaka sanzonzou 釈迦三尊像 (623) in Houryuuji 法隆寺, which is known as ikkou sanzon kouhai 一光三尊光背 (the single-light triad halo, see *ikkou sanon 一光三尊), because all three figures of the triad are enclosed in a single halo. The halo surrounds the figures completely *kyoshinkou 挙身光 and has a pointed top, giving it the name *funagata kouhai 舟形光背 (the boat-shaped halo).

Individual standing figures of the same period had round halos *enkou 円光 as on the Four Heavenly Kings, Shitennou 四天王 in Houryuuji *Kondou 法隆寺金堂, or jewel-shaped halos *houjugata kouhai 宝珠形光背, like that of the Kudara Kannonzou 百済観音像 in Houryuuji Daihouzouden 法隆寺大宝蔵殿.

In the Tenpyou period, the double-round halo *nijuu-enkou 二重円光 became popular. A round head-nimbus *zukou 頭光 is attached to a round body-nimbus *shinkou 身光, as on the Miroku Bosatsu 弥勒菩薩 in Houryuuji Daihouzouden 法隆寺大宝蔵殿.

Halos decorated with Chinese foliage design *karakusamon 唐草文 and a thousand miniature buddhas senbutsu kouhai 千仏光背 were also produced in the Tenpyou period. A good example is *Rushanabutsu 盧舎那仏 (779) in Toushoudaiji 唐招堤寺, Nara.

In the Heian period halos with a decorated base *koukyaku 光脚 became popular. *Ten 天 and *Myouou 明王 Myo-O figures had halos with flame designs *kaen kouhai 火焔光背.

The earliest examples of wooden halos *itakouhai 板光背 date from the late 9c, and these were often painted with flames, karakusamon, and small manifestations of buddha *kebutsu 化仏, as on the Shaka ryuuzou 釈迦立像 in Murouji 室生寺, Nara. In the 12c nijuu enkou were surrounded by a large outer boat-shaped halo of openwork flying apsaras figures *hiten kouhai 飛天光背. The model for this style was the Amida Nyoraizazou 阿弥陀如来坐像 (1053) by Jouchou 定朝 in Byoudouin 平等院, Kyoto.

Other styles characteristic of the late Heian period were the single free-standing ring *rinkou 輪光 like that of the *Kichijouten 吉祥天 in Joururiji 浄瑠璃寺, Kyoto, a halo with radiating spokes like a wheel, houshagata kouhai 放射形光背, seen on the Amida Nyoraizou in Kanzeonji 観世音寺, Fukuoka prefecture; and the *mibu kouhai 壬生光背 named after the Jizou Bosatsu 地蔵菩薩 in Mibudera 壬生寺, Kyoto (now lost).

In the Kamakura period various designs of kouhai with openwork decoration continued to be produced, as well as halos decorated with small figures representings the followers of Buddha *kenzoku 眷属, as on the central Senju Kannon 千手観音 in Rengeouin 蓮華王院, Kyoto. Another form of halo called *ensoukou 円相光 enclosed the nijuu ensou in a large outer circle, often seen on Aizen Myouou 愛染明王 figures (1247), for example in Saidaiji 西大寺, Nara.

Acalanatha (Fudo Myoo) a une importance considérable dans les rituels

Association Shingon de France
- source : komyoin.free.fr




Acalanatha (Fudo Myoo)
a une importance considérable dans les rituels, notamment dans les Gomas ou rituels de feu. Forme irritée de Mahavairocana le bouddha principal, il incarne l'immuabilité et l'aspect inébranlable de
l'éveil.

Il est ainsi décrit dans le Mahavairocana Sutra: "Acala, le serviteur du Tathagata tient le sabre de la sagesse et le Pasa; sa chevelure pend sur l'épaule gauche; un oeil louchant un peu, il regarde fixement; des flammes ardentes jaillissent avec violence de son corps qui inspire une terreur sacrée; il est installé sur un grand rocher; sur son front il y a des rides comme des vagues sur l'eau; c'est un jeune garçon au corps replet."

Serviteur des ascètes qui suivent la voie du bouddha, il les porte sur le lotus à8 pétales situé au sommet de sa tête. Son glaive tranche la confusion et les doutes, les flammes qui l'entoure brûlent les passions, son lasso symbolise autant l'immobilisation des forces hostiles à l'éveil, que la grande concentration. Son oeil gauche est à moitié fermé, son oeil droit est ouvert. Il fait entrer dans le suprême véhicule. Les deux canines, une vers le haut, une vers le bas, brisent tous les obstacles. Sa bouche fermée détruit le souffle du samsara de tous les êtres. Son siège représente le mont Suméru. Cela représente que la qualité de bouddha de tous les êtres est inébranlable. Pareil au Mont Suméru. Il est solide comme un grand rocher, c'est à dire qu'il montre que la vertu du grand Dhyâna est inébranlable. Il est en vérité la divinité de la profonde compassion.
(Ryujun Tajima)

The statue is in memory of the story of the Adachi Samurai 遠藤盛遠 Endo Morito.
Endo fell in love with 袈裟御前 Kesa Gozen, but the love was not fullfilled, since she was married. He ended up killing her with his own sword, as she had lured him to a room to kill her husband, but was there herself to end her tragic love situation.
After her death he became a priest and took the name of Mongaku 文覚.
He often took ablutions for his sin under the waterfall, which eventually was named after him - 遠藤ヶ滝 Endogataki - Endo Waterfall.

- quote
Mount Adatara (安達太良山 Adatara-yama)
is a stratovolcano on the main island of Honshu in Japan.
It is located about 15 kilometres southwest of the city of Fukushima and east of Mount Bandai. Its last known eruption was in 1996.

The mountain is actually multiple volcanoes forming a broad, forested massif. It abuts Mount Azuma, a dormant volcano to the north. The peak is called Minowa-yama. It is the highest peak in the Adatara range, which stretches about 9 km in a north-south direction.

The active summit crater is surrounded by hot springs and fumaroles. Sulfur mining was carried out in the 19th century, and 72 mine workers were killed in an eruption in 1900. Poems about Mount Adatara by Kōtarō Takamura from his book "Chieko-sho" helped make it famous.
