Prayer for the Victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Reconstruction of the Disaster-Stricken Area

261009 Todai-ji.JPGOn 9th October, Todai-ji and Tsurugaoka Hachimangu served a joint ritual to pray for the victims and an immediate reconstruction.

Because of historical connections among the disaster-stricken Tohoku region, Todai-ji and Tsurugaoka Hachimangu, we still strongly feel the need to pray for and support people in the region.

In the ritual, monks from the temple read parts of Daihannyakyo (Great Perfection of Wisdom Sutra), and Shinto maidens from the shrine dedicated a sacred dance called Urayasu no mai. Solemnly, prayers were dedicated in both Buddhism and Shinto way in Todai-ji.
