Firewalking Hiwatari Shinji, Daisho-in Temple, Miyajima, Hiroshima 火渡り神事 大聖院 広島県宮島町 by Kari Gröhn karigrohncom The impressive Hiwatari Shinji takes place in the forecourt of Daisho-ji Temple on April and November at the foot of Mt Misen on the sacred island of Miyajima. This Buddhist fire-walking ritual begins with a drum beating chorus followed by a long procession of Shingon Buddhist monks who build a purifying gomataki bonfire (ゴマ焚き神事) from the eternal holy fire. Wooden tablets inscribed with prayers and wishes are ritually burned and sutras are chanted. Once the flames have died down the fire is raked out and salt is spread on the hot coals. Then the monks walk barefoot over the glowing coals. Praying for health and good fortune hundreds of pilgrims then follow in their footsteps and emerge unscathed - although the unlucky ones occasionally suffer a few blisters. It is believed that the sacret Goma fire invokes Fudō Myō-ō (不動明王) Wisdom King Acala to burn away the 108 defilements (impediments to enlightenment) and that the spectators who simply watch the ceremony will also receive the benefits. One origin of fire walking can be found in a myth about a goddess who was questioned by her husband to prove her innocence by setting on fire their house without getting scorched. The common motive is that the innocent and pure will not be touched by fire. It is said that if you have a guilty conscience the ember becomes hot. Witnessing this ancient ritual is a powerful experience and those brave enough to walk are welcome to do so. Fire walking is considered by many to be an effective tool for moving beyond one's fears, thus achieving personal growth. However, some people have been badly injured when attempting without proper instruction. Firewalking has a long history in Japan, and today, tens of thousands of people gather for several firewalking rituals around the country each year, usually in the weeks just before the beginning of spring. Shingon Buddhist monks are called yamabushi (山伏). These esoteric mountain monks practise the highly syncretic Shugendō (修験道), which amalgamate beliefs, philosophies, doctrines and ritual systems drawn from local folk-religious practices, pre-Buddhist mountain worship, the nature-worship of Japan's native Shinto, Taoism and esoteric Buddhism. Majority of Buddhists in Japan practices the Shingon sect of Buddhism which was introduced in the country in 809 by Kobo Daishi. He mastered Buddhism in Tang China and began meditating at Mt Misen. An eternal fire, first lit by Kobo Daishi, still burns at the sacred mountain.
