Deskripsi

Buddhist Zen meditation, or Zazen, is a type of meditation that calms the body and mind, and helps one gain enlightenment. Gifu Zenko-ji temple was founded in 1582 and was used to enshrine Japan's first Buddha statue from China. This statue, called Ikko Sanzon Amida Nyorai, was the symbol of Shinshu Zenko-ji temple and was worshiped by people from all walks of life due to its auspiciousness. During the Warring States Period (1493 - 1590), each feudal warlord scrambled to own this statue, either to protect their land or to symbolize their power. One of these warlords was Oda Nobunaga, who almost unified Japan during this warring period. When he conquered Gifu Castle, he brought this statue along to Gifu to pray for the peace of the town. After his death, the state changed hands among several warlords before returning to Shinshu Zenko-ji. Years later, the Zenko-ji hall was established to commemorate Shinshu Zenko-ji Nyorai. In this tour, you will: -Learn the proper procedures when visiting a temple -Practice zen meditation -Understand Japanese history and culture -Increase your concentration and relief stress & anxiety.
