This year’s Mount Koya, Part 2: Kongobu-ji Temple Purify yourself at the entrance under the stairs… It seems that there are many temple priests from Koyasan in rural areas…
An old friend of mine lived in Kongobuji Temple.
I stayed at a temple lodging yesterday, and the next day I went to Kongobu-ji Temple for the first time in a while. A long time ago, a friend of mine used to live at Kongobu-ji Temple and go to school in Koyasan, but when I think about it now, he was an elegant person. Was it traced?
Living in Kongobu-ji Temple…
It seems that there are quite a lot of temple chief priests from Koyasan in rural areas, but in this area of Koyasan, the chief priests are from good urban universities. There are also people who graduated from national universities in philosophy and religion. Maybe the second generation of a good temple or something… Even so, it seems likely that he has some connections after living in Kongobu-ji Temple. Live-in training at Kongobu-ji Temple may not be easy. Because it is the head temple.
A temple in Koyasan has a different feeling than a temple in Kyoto.
Also, it was my first time inside. It’s been a long time since I’ve known it, but it’s really the first time, but it’s not inferior to Kyoto’s temple, but if you say it’s similar, it’s similar.Is there a temple in a tourist area like this? Even so, since it is the head temple of Shingon Buddhism, is there a difference in rank, or rather a difference in sects? I feel that the scenery and construction of the temples are different from Kyoto, but the temples in Kyoto are huge, and maybe because the land in Kyoto is a little flat, the temples are huge. Koyasan feels like a very narrow mountainside, so the temple is small, so it feels like it’s different.
Kongobu-ji Temple early in the morning in summer is quite nice.
This Kongobu-ji Temple has a beautiful summer sky. He loves the verandah of the temple and wants to sit there and enjoy the scenery. That wish came true. Also, maybe because it was early in the morning, the summer sky is beautiful. Because it’s Koyasan, the air is clear. extraordinarily clear. The trees and plants are green and the blue sky is really beautiful, and Koyasan in winter is pretty beautiful with snow. It feels like a healthy summer in the countryside, and above all, it’s cool because it’s on top of a mountain. You can cool down.
