Overview of Iwamoto Temple

Shikoku Sacred Ground 37th Fudasho
Iwamoto Temple, which enshrines the principal image of the Goson, is built in Shimanto Town, where the clear stream Shimanto River flows and the Konandai Plateau with an altitude of about 300 m spreads.History goes back to the world of Tenpei.According to the temple, Gyoki Bosatsu, who dedicated the Emperor Shomu's edict, was erected near Niida Myojin, about 3 km northwest of his current location, in prayer for the immediate destruction of the seven difficulties and the immediate life of the seven fortunes. It is said to be the predecessor of Fukuenmanji Temple, which has the seven temples of Sueji Temple.It was also called Niida-ji because it was the Betto-ji temple of Niida Myojin.Kobo Daishi visited this temple during the Konin period.Daishi divides the deity of Niida Myojin, which was enshrined in one company, into five companies, and enshrines the statues of Fudo Myo, Kannon Bosatsu, Amida Nyorai, Yakushi Nyorai, and Jizo Bosatsu as the main Buddha in each company. did.Daishi also built Sueji Gogaji.For this reason, Fukuenmanji Temple was called Nipukuji Temple together with Nanagaji Temple, and Niida Myojin was called Niida Gosha.

During the Tensho era, both temples and shrines temporarily declined due to fire and other fires.At the time of reconstruction, Iwamoto-ji Temple (Iwamoto-bo at that time), which was in charge of all the shrines in this area, transferred the temple's lanterns and other professions and inherited them.During the Warring States and Edo period, it was donated by warlords and feudal lords to temple territories, and was prosperous as a temple for Shinto and Buddhism.In the Meiji era, it was separated from the Niida Gosha by the policy of separating Shinto and Buddhism, and the main Buddha and the temple of the five temples were unified into Iwamoto Temple, and most of the temple territory was lost due to the accompanying law of Haibutsu Kishaku.The reconstruction has been a difficult road, but the cathedral has been gradually improved and continues to the present day.

As many as 575 contemporary paintings are drawn by professionals and amateurs in the main hall of the precincts, and the subsidence bridge over the Shimanto River is drawn in the ceiling painting in the clear stream hall.In addition, POP art is drawn everywhere in the precincts and shukubo, which brings brightness and energy to long trips by pilgrimage.We also offer a stay-type experience program with the keywords of natural (Shimanto River), wellness (healing), and spiritual (pilgrimage), so please drop in outside of the pilgrimage.

Iwamoto Temple 7 Mysteries

Seven mysteries related to Kobo Daishi remain at Iwamoto Temple.

Three times chestnut
(Sandoguri)

Kobo Daishi sang a song for children who want to eat chestnuts many times instead of once a year.Then, the chestnut tree became low so that it was easy for children to take, and it began to bear fruit three times a year.Also, chestnuts are sweet and squid is soft.During the chestnut season, Japanese sweets that imitate chestnuts are sold three times at "Matsuzuru-do" in front of the gate.

Koyasu Sakura
(Koyasu Sakura)

When the pregnant woman was suffering under the cherry tree at Iwamoto Temple, the Daishi prayed and was able to give birth safely.Currently, Koyasu Sakura in Iwamoto Temple is worshiped as a talisman to pray for safe delivery.

Brush grass
(Fudekusa)

There is grass in the shape of a brush.It is said that this is the grass that the brush that Daishi had fell to the ground and grew from there. Kobo Daishi is a master of calligraphy, saying, "I don't choose a Kobo brush."Therefore, it is said that if you have this grass, you can write well.According to one theory, horsetail is also considered to be a horsetail, and there is also an experience plan where you can collect the horsetail that grows in the Shimanto River in early spring and enjoy cooking and copying sutras at the shukubo.

Mouthless leech
(Hiru Kuchinashi)

When planting rice, the farmers were in trouble because the leeches sucked blood.Then, the master lost the leech's mouth.

Sakuragai
(Sakuragai)

Daishi planted cherry blossoms on the beach near Iwamoto Temple.However, when the Daishi visited again a few years later, the cherry blossoms were scattered.When Daishi sang a song, the purchase on the beach changed to the color of cherry blossoms.Even now, cherry blossom-colored solutions can be seen on the beach near Iwamoto Temple.

Iyo Kigawa shellfish
(Iyokigawa no Kai)

A shellfish stuck in my leg when the master crossed the river.So I removed the pointed part of the shell so that the next person would not get hurt.

Shoya without a detached house

The house was destroyed by a thief, and Shoya was in trouble.There, the master prayed and the thief was prevented from entering.Therefore, it is no longer necessary to lock the door.

Special
Special
(Kobourisho)

The master (Kukai Kaijin) received the posthumous name of Kobo Daishi from the achievements of "Kobo Toshio" on October XNUMX, XNUMX (Engi XNUMX).The year of Reiwa XNUMX (XNUMX) will be the year of the XNUMXth anniversary of the posthumous name of the master. It is said that the treasure of "Nanmu Daishi Hensho Kongo" began when the master received the posthumous name of Kobo Daishi.In commemoration of this, at the Shikoku XNUMX Pilgrimage Site, where many people are still pilgrimages, as a place related to the Daishi and a place where you can feel the Daishi and the Buddha more closely. I connected the rope of goodness to the statue of Daishi.The rope of goodness from the master is connected to the five-sided sword. We hope that you will come into contact with this five-storied sword while keeping in mind the treasure of "Nanmu Daishi Hensho Kongo" and deepen your relationship with the Daishi.

Special
It is said that the Vajra (Vajra)

Vajradhara is a weapon originally used in ancient India that is said to be solid and crush everything.
In esoteric Buddhism, this gold rigidity has been considered to be an elephant of the wisdom of the author, who is a solid man who crushes the bottom of the worldly desires.For this reason, it is said from ancient times that various demons, represented by worldly desires, will surrender due to the Buddha's holding power if he holds it with Kongo.
Please take care of the Buddha and the master and receive the benefits of the Buddha.
And I pray that the brilliance of the bodhicitta in you will increase.
