Mahavairocana Buddha- (Dainichi-nyorai)
-The Temple which holding the Mahavairocana Buddha statue
Jyoruri-Ji is an ancient temple located in the mountain of Nara, Kyoto. It is a clean and quiet place, which is isolated from the hustle and bustle of the world. The Jyoruri-ji has kept many precious national treasures, such as nine bodies Amitabha Buddha and Bhaisajyaguru Buddha.
-Mahavairocana Buddha statue
This Mahavairocana Buddha statue is a reproduction from the real Buddha statue which is kept in Joruri - ji Temple, Kyoto, Japan.
The real Buddha statue is rarely shown to the public. (Only 3 days from January 8th to 10th will be open for the visitors.)
By the precious chance and under the templefs permission, KENSIN got the opportunity to recreate this Buddha statue and show it to the common people.
-About the Buddha Statue
The Mahavairocana Buddha statue in Jyoruri-Ji is made by the famous Buddha statue making school – Kei-Ha.
To recreate this Buddha statue, the model sculptor visited the temple and begged to see the real one many times. The perfect made proportion, the deep spirit from the calm face expression and the beautiful details, it is a masterpiece which the modern skill cannot catch up with.
And to reappear the colors of the real statue, which has some parts faded during the long time, the skillful artisans hand paint the statues by soft brush.
Every piece is a faithful repeat of the real one, even on the parts that the paint or foil is peeled off, all details have been made as same as to the real statue.
The hand painting will give the Buddha statue a nice color after set it in room for some time. Especially the eyes, the painting work need high skilled artisans to assure that every piece is a nice one for every customer.
-The Mahavairocana Buddha represents the center of the universe, the wisdom of the universal.
With his infinite mercy and wisdom, he controls all the things in the universe. He is the highest Buddha. In esoteric Buddhism, he is the absolute being to show the truth of the universe.
The knowledge-fist mudra of his hands, the left hand points to human's heart, and the five fingers of the right hand point to the five elements of the world: earth, water, fire, wind and air. The posture means human and the world will come into one and the wisdom will come to the heart in the progress.
Attachment of Goshuin:
A "shuin" is a seal stamp given to worshippers and visitors to Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples in Japan. The seal stamps are often collected in books called shuincho that are sold at shrines and temples. The stamps are different from commemorative stamps in that they are made by people who work at the temples. Buddhist monks, or Shinto. To create the shuin, the writer presses down one or more large stamp, and then uses black ink to write, in his distintive calligraphy, the name of the temple, the day of the visit, and other messages on and around the stamped portions. There are various theories about the origin of shuin, through the strongest is that it was a receipt for a dedicated copied sutra. Japanese people usually go to the shrine and collect the "shuin". Some people think this as a hobby to collect "shuin" from different shrine.
