Kanagawa Prefectural Kanazawa Bunko

One of the characteristics of Japanese esoteric Buddhism is that it created a national ritual related to the emperor, actively incorporated the esoteric Buddhism, and positioned it in the esoteric Buddhist system, and created the esoteric Shinto theory. Among them, protecting the emperor's "ball" and praying for its peace was positioned as an important ritual linked to the prayers of Taihei Tenka and national tranquility. In this exhibition, we will introduce the seven-day rehearsal, the Nijuden Kannon offering, the activities of various guardian monks, etc. We will clarify the aspects related to the development of treasures and Shinto and Buddhist rituals.
