You will be reborn through Tainai-meguri in Kyoto

Tainai-meguri in Kyoto

Hello !! How are you?
Today, I will introduce you a very interesting place, which is not so famous, therefore, many tourists miss it. The reason why I recommend this place even though it’s not so famous is that you can experience invisible mysterious sense. When you’re going to Kiyomizu-dera, keep an eye on the left side of the stairway leading up to the temple. you will find a small building called Tainai-meguri, where you’ll need to remove your shes, pay 100 yen, and go down the stairs leading to the darkness. It’s pitch dark. It’s 

so dark that you couldn’t know if your eyes are closed or open. You’ll be going in blind into the womb of Daizuigu Bosathu, a female Bodhisattava with the ability to grant wishes. Going in barefoot will let you feel the floor better as you navigate. Keep your hand on the roped handrail and as you walk, let your sense take over. After going the cave through, you can return to the original place. On the way to the original place, you will find a luminous stone, which grants just one request. You will pray to Daizuigu Bosathu putting your hands on the stone.  If you’re not afraid of the dark, the experience will be calming and sublime.
Try Tainai-megiri when you want to turn over a new leaf, when you want to forget a bad experience, and when you want to make your wish come true.
Opening hours : 9:00 – 16:00

Daizuigu Bosathu, a female Bodhisattava

Zuigu(随求)of Daizuigu means granting people’s wishes. Bodhisattava has the power purging people’s sins, and also has miraculous efficiensy of the child bestowed. I recommend a bracelet type of amulet with a letter of Shingon. It is said that people are protected from any disaster by always wearing it. They say that this temple has the sculpture of Bodhisattava, which is very unusual to be carved. However, unfortunately it is not on general display. It’s a seated statue, which has 8 arms, made of wood with gold, and 110 cm tall. I love a statue of Buddha, so someday, I wish I could watch this statue.
