Significance of Fudou Myoo statue

Fudou Myoo is 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. 

The Four Obligation

posted Dec 18, 2013, 3:42 PM by Sohko Kuki   [ updated Mar 4, 2014, 6:04 PM ]

The Four Obligation are
1. the obligation to our parents, since domestic morality is fundamental.
2. the obligation to the nation, since national morality is central.
3. the obligation to living beings, since social morality is normative.
4. the obligation to the Three Treasures of the Buddha, the Sangha, and the Dharma, since religious morality is basic.
