Tender is the darkness

  1. 1. Tender is the darkness (暗闇はやさし) Yukina Abe 02/07/2014
  2. 2. I’m from Nagano city. here!
  3. 3. Nagano’s best spot: Zenkoji temple ・Foundation: 642 AD ・Sect: Non(無宗派) ・Main Image: Amida Triad Sharing One Halo (本尊:一光三尊阿弥陀如来像) ・Founder: Yoshimitsu Honda The main image has been completely hidden from the people since 654.(絶対秘仏)
  4. 4. “Okaidan Tour( お戒壇めぐり )”, my childhood favorite the entrance
  5. 5. The Route of Okaidan Tour: Basement Passage of Hondo Building top view
  6. 6. What do you search for? ・At the point where the main image is placed above, there is a pillar, and a key is embedded in it. ・It’s dark, so you can only feel the key by touching. ・It’s said that you can feel the Buddha’s blessing by touching the key.
  7. 7. The inside is totally dark… You can’t even see the person next to you.
  8. 8. I visited there for the first time in 20 years… Everything was the same, except for this.
  9. 9. Be in the darkness again… I felt a little bit different this time.
  10. 10. What I loved about the darkness. ・Could remember many things I had forgotten in a daily life. e.g. voice, touch, etc ・All equal in the darkness. Maybe, touching the key is not so important… -Tender is the darkness-
