蓮如上人と、毛糸の帽子 ~Imakatata/今堅田 086

蓮如上人と、毛糸の帽子

蓮如上人像の”頭”が気になって近づいたら・・・。 ( 写真を御覧下さい )
「蓮如さん、お寒いやろうね。これでもかぶって。」
そんな風に想像したら、昔話の”かさこ地蔵”の物語を思いだしました。
毛糸の色が合っていて、すごくいいですね。

今堅田(いまかたた)の町には、きっと優しい人が住んでいるのでしょう。
堅田は町を挙げて蓮如を匿った歴史があり、蓮如に対する信仰の厚い土地です。

This is the statue of Rennyo in Senpuku-ji temple in Katata,Japan.
”Rennyo (蓮如) (1415-1499) was the 8th Monshu, or head-priest, of the Jōdo Shinshū sect of Buddhism, and descendant of founder Shinran”. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rennyo)
Katata has the history which protected Rennyo, and is a religious town to Rennyo.

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.
