堅田、3月 (23) ~Imakatata/今堅田 065

お地蔵さん

今堅田の泉福寺もまた、蓮如と縁の深いお寺。

比叡山延暦寺が本願寺と蓮如を仏敵としたことで、蓮如は京都を追われた。
応仁元年(1467)、蓮如は本堅田の本福寺に身を寄せて、再興の時を待つ。
応仁二年(1468)、延暦寺西塔の衆徒が大軍を もって堅田を攻撃した(堅田大責)。
蓮如は比叡山に近い堅田の地をあきらめ、文明三年(1471)4月、越前吉崎へと向かうことになる。

Sempuku-ji temple in Imakatata is also closely connected with Rennyo.
Rennyo (1415-1499) was the 8th head-priest of the Jōdo Shinshū sect of Buddhism.
Enryaku-ji temple considered that Rennyo and  his temple Hongan-ji ( in Kyoto) the enemies of the Buddha,and  Enryaku-ji  temple oppressed them. Hongan-ji  temple was destroyed and he led the life as a fugitive.He stayed at  Honpuku-ji temple in Honkatata and waited for the time of revival in 1467.Enryaku-ji  temple attacked Katata  with the large force in 1468 (it is called Katata Ozeme).He gave up making Katata into headquarters. It is because Katata was close to Enryaku-ji temple.In April, 1471, he went to Echizen Yosizaki which was a still more distant place from Kyoto.
