Enma Emmado Edo

[ . BACK to DARUMA MUSEUM TOP . ]
. Gofunai 御府内八十八ヶ所霊場 88 Henro Temples in Edo .
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

. Enma Ten, Enma Oo 閻魔天、閻魔王 Emma King of Hell .

Temples in his honor are usually called Enmadoo 閻魔堂 Emma-Do, Emma Hall.



The statue of Enma is 3,5 m high and 4,5 m wide. (Said to be the largest in Japan.)
If people throw coins in the box for offerings (saisenbako 賽銭箱), the halo in the back of the statue lights up and flickers for a while. The statue is therefore called
ハイテク闇魔 Hi-Tech Enma.

Eingakyo Sutra

Eingakyoo 絵因果経 E-Inga-Kyo - Illustrated Sutra of Cause and Effect



Different parts of the Eingakyo scroll are available at various temples and museums.

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

- quote -
National Institutes for Cultural Heritage:
"Eingakyo" is a set of eight painting scrolls created by adding paintings to "Kakogenzai Ingakyo
(Ryusho Gunabattara, translated in the mid Genga period (Sung) (fifth century)" consisting of four scrolls.
The list known as "Tenmeishouhin gonengogatsunanoka ruishushoujoukeinouhitsu mokuroku (天平勝寳五年五月七日類収小乗經納櫃目録)" of Shosoin Monjo has an item of "Gaiinkei nibujuurokkan (畫因果經二部十六巻) (two sets of 16 scrolls)" and this is the first appearance in Japanese literature. Another list known as "Heikatuhinhassai sichigatufutsukaruijuu toshoryoukeimokuroku (平勝寳八歳七月二日類従圖書寮經目録)" has an item of "Souingakeihatu Jusankan ichinichi tunonaka itchichitsue (繪因果經八(十三)巻 一(二)帙之中一帙繪)."
At that time, the creation of pictorial covers of Kyokan became popular at places where Sutras were copied when the relationship between the places and the painters deepened. It is significant that Buddhist paintings were understood in conjunction with the text expressions in "Eingakyo."

Existing "Eingakyo" from the Nara period are those held by Jobon Rendai-ji Temple (the first one of a set of two), Godai-ji Temple (the first one of a set of three), the old Masuda family (the first one of a set of four),
Tokyo Geijutsu Daigaku (the second one of a set of four) and
the Idemitsu Museum of Arts (the first one of a set of three).

The painting held at this museum is one of those that used to make up one scroll together with those held in Jobon Rendai-ji Temple and represent the last scene of "Shimon Shutsuyu" following the four scenes ("Kyoshibugei (競試武芸)," "Kanjyo Taishi (灌頂太子)," "Enbujukashiyui (閻浮樹下思惟)" and "Nouki (納妃)"). They represent those including scenes of Prince having a dialogue with Biku (a trainee Buddhist priest) after exiting the north gate and then Biku heading for the sky, of Prince coming back to the castle on a horse, of Udai (one of Shaka's disciples) talking to a king, of Prince meeting Biku, of a dialogue with Biku, of Prince and his wife watching Geiki singing and dancing to music and finally Prince asking King for permission to become a priest.

As each existing "Eingakyo" has unique expressions, it seems unlikely that they were created by the same painter in the same period. However, it seems this can be a valuable clue to looking into the situation of the Gakoshi (an institution to which painters belong) of the time.
This is a rare and extremely valuable work from the Nara period that still exists.

They represent the deities of other religions which Shakyamuni encounters.
There are more than 30 Mamono appearing on the scroll. Some look very much like Oni.

Joobon Rendaiji 上品蓮台寺 Temple Jobon Rendai-Ji

- quote -
The Illustrated Sutra of Cause and Effect from Jobon Rendai-ji
This sutra is called the
Sutra of Cause and Effect in the Past and Present (過去現在因果経 Kako genzai inga kyo),
more commonly known as the
Illustrated Sutra of Cause and Effect (J., E inga kyo).
The words of the sutra are copied in the lower half, while the upper half illustrates representative scenes described below. The story begins with the training of the historical Buddha Sakyamuni in his past lives, how he was freed suffering and delusion, and how he achieved enlightenment and became the Buddha. In other words, this sutra is somewhat like the Buddha's biography.

Putting aside these tales of his previous lives, Sakyamuni himself was born about 2,500 years ago in India as a prince, named Siddhartha. His family name was Gautama. His father was Suddhodana, the ruler of a small kingdom called Kapilavastu (on the boarder of present-day Nepal and India); his mother was Queen Maya. According to legend, he was born in the nearby garden of Lumbini. As a prince, Siddhartha spent his childhood and youth in comfort.

This sutra from Jobon Rendai-ji Temple in Kyoto starts from around the time the prince was ten years old. The young Siddhartha spent his time competing in skill and strength against his cousin Devadatta and his half-brother Nanda and always winning. The illustration here captures such a scene that demonstrates the prince's amazing abilities.
- photo -
Here, Siddhartha is about to shoot seven drum-shaped targets made of gold and silver. Since there are seven targets, at least seven arrows would usually be needed to hit all of them, but Siddhartha hits all seven with a single arrow!

According to legend, Prince Siddhartha one day ventured out of his castle from four gates-in the directions of east, south, west, and north-and on each occasion he encountered an old man, a sick man, a dead man, and a spiritual man. The image below represents the scene in which the prince leaves the castle from the south gate to see a sick man. The prince, who had been protected from the outside world, was deeply struck by this sight of illness, as he had never seen a sick person before.



The sutra also captures several other interesting scenes such as Siddhartha competing in a wrestling match and plowing a field to demonstrate his strength. The sutra itself was copied in a beautiful kaisho (formal style of calligraphy) in Japan during the Nara period (710-793). The colors used to paint the illustrations even today are surprisingly brilliant. Moreover, this manuscript not only represents one of the few existing examples of painting from the Nara period, but also served as the prototype of emaki (illustrated handscrolls), which became popular from the Heian period (710-793) on. Finally, there are very few eighth-century sutras from the East Asian Buddhist countries of China, Korea, and Japan that are illustrated and that are as well preserved as this wonderful work.

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

The Buddhist biographical scriptures that the ancient Japanese used were mainly those written in Chinese and even they were introduced as illustrated biographies. ‘Eingakyo( (Illustrated Sutra of Cause and Effect) is one of the most famous ancient works that was imported to Japan in the Nara Period (8th century AD).

The Temple of Good Luck
The temple was founded by Kōbō Daishi on the orders of Emperor Saga. The complex started off as a Shrine, but when Kōbō Daishi prayed here for safety at sea and stopped a storm with his prayers, Amida Nyorai appeared to him. Kōbō Daishi then converted it to a temple, carved the honzon of Amida, and enshrined it here.

In 861 Emperor Saga frequently sent Gyōkō (a priest from Daianji in Nara) to Usa in Kyūshū to receive an oracle from the God Hachiman. On one trip, his ship was wrecked in the area of this temple. Since the area around this temple resembles the area around Usa in Kyūshū, he simply climbed up to this temple and received the oracle from Hachiman here. Gyōkō believed that Hachiman was a manifestation of Amida Nyorai. The temple is now often called Katsuoka Hachiman by the locals.

The temple has been destroyed by fire several times and was deserted for almost a century, but has always remained as a favorite location for people offering prayers for safety at sea, as is Konpira Shrine in Kagawa Prefecture.

- quote
Ten Nights Bridge/Temple of Eternal Virtue

Eitokuji is located between Bangai Temple 7 and Temple 44. While the temple's name is officially Eitokuji, the name used by everyone is Tōyogabashi (Ten Nights Bridge) because of the legend associated with the bridge itself.

Legend has it that while in the area during the coldest part of winter, Kōbō Daishi went from house to house knocking on doors and asking for shelter. However, he was refused everywhere and ended up having to sleep under the bridge. He composed the following verse: "They will not help a traveler in trouble - This one night seems like ten."

The temple was founded by Kōbō Daishi and a reclining image of him is enshrined under the bridge. Since the time it was constructed, the temple has been destroyed numerous times from flooding. Now it is made of concrete and Kōbō Daishi lies under thick futons. Both the Daishi and the temple belong to the nearby Eitokuji.

The statue of the reclining Daishi is popularly called Nojuku Daishi.

西津軽郡深浦町深浦字浜町275 / Hamamachi-275 Fukaura, Fukaura-machi, Nishitsugaru-gun

Founded by Sakanoue no Tamuramaro 坂上田村麻呂 in 807.

Engaku Hoin 円覚法印 in 868 came here on his pilgrimage to the Northern Region
and built a small Kannon Hall 観音堂.

The sacred light which priest Engaku started in the the temple has been kept alive for more than 1000 years to our very day.

The main statue is 十一面観世音菩薩 11-headed Kannon Bosatsu
better known as 澗口観音 Maguchi Kannon

その後、嘉応年間になり鎮守府将軍・藤原基衝公、永正年間には葛西木庭袋伊予守頼清公の庇護(ひご)を受け、藩政時代になってからは津軽家の祈祷所に選ばれ、歴代藩主の手厚いひ護のもと、北前船貿易の華やかな江戸中期から明治中期にかけ、大阪をはじめ日本海の港からの船の出入りが多く、信心深い船主や船頭たちが海路の無事を祈って数多くの絵馬を奉納し、澗口観音と呼びならわされた。

- quote
Engaku-ji temple dates back to the 9th century. The great conqueror, Sakanoue No Tamuramaro, built a temple dedicated to the Kannon (the Buddhist God of Mercy) and put the eleven-faced Kannon into the temple at this place in 807. The eleven-faced Kannon was supposedly made by Shotoku Taishi (who was the greatest prince in Japan in the early 7th century).
After that, a Buddhist priest named Engaku Hoin came here from Nara and rebuilt the temple in 868.
Engaku-ji temple was founded at that time.

来迎の弥陀の光の圓明寺  
照りそふ影は夜な夜なの月



- quote
The temple was originally founded by Gyōgi.
The honzon is also attributed to him. It was originally called Sugazan Shōchiin Emmyōji, a name given by Prince Kakujin of the Omuro Ninnaji Temple in Kyōto. At one time this was a monastic community of seven shrines but these burned down in the wars of the 16th century. It was later rebuilt by the feudal lord Shigehisa Suga.

The temple houses an interesting statue of the Virgin Mary disguised as Mariya Kannon, which was worshipped by secret Christians during the persecutions of Christians during the Tokugawa Period.

As an aside, Matsuyama was the feudal castle town of the daimyō Hisamatsu. The castle can still be seen on Matsuyama (Pine Mountain).

- quote
While seeking a new spiritual place, Shoku 性空上人, a holy Buddhist priest, founded the Engyoji Temple on Mt. Shosha in the early Heian Period (10th century). This temple is one of the three most important training centers of the Tendai sect, and is called the Mt. Hiei of The West.

Kannon Statue

From the ropeway terminal you can walk up the pathway while flanked by Kannon statues of 33 pilgrimage sites. The clear and solemn atmosphere is physically and spiritually refreshing.

Juryoin 寿量院
Juryoin has the highest rank among the sub-temples, and records show the former Emperor Goshirakawa visited there. Its outer appearance is built in the traditional Shinnden style, but the inside was designed in the Shoin style. You can enjoy a “Shojin Dinner” with Shosha lacquer ware by appointment.

Maniden 摩尼殿
The magnificient structure of Maniden, standing halfway up the rocky cliff, reminds visitors of the Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto.

Kaizando 開山堂

Shoku, founder of Engyoji Temple, is worshiped at “Kaizando”. Formally there were Sumo wrestlers, carved by Jingoro Hidari, sustaining the roof at the four corners. But it is said that the wrestler at the northwest corner ran away, incapable of sustaining the weight of the roof.

Gohoodoo 護法堂 Goho-Do

These two buildings, Gohodou, with thatched roofs made of cypress bark, are dedicated to two deities,
Ototen 乙天 and Wakaten 若天.
They served Shoku as guards and guides.

The Benkei Study is facing Gohodo. It is said that Benkei had studied and trained at Mt. Shosha in his youth, and many legends and related objects remain.

Art and Craft Museum 美術工芸館
After spending a relaxing and calm time on Mt. Shosha, you are welcome at the “Shosha-no-sato Art and Craft Center” at the foot of the mountain. You will find artwork done by Kosho Shimizu who was born in Himeji and became the chief priest at the Todaiji Temple in Nara. You can observe or participate in making traditional Himeji crafts such as Himeji Hariko, Himeji goma, leather products and Himeyama dolls.
