SAITO GOMA, extinguish our lust

‘SAITO GOMA, extinguish our lust ‘
I attended SAITO GOMA ritual at TAKAOSAN-YAKUOUIN temple in Tokyo.


It’s the ritual of esoteric Buddhism only in Japan. The original history could be the long time ago when human kind firstly found out the fire.

Put the fire

The similar ritual is in the Hindu religion as ‘HOMA’ too.

If we attend the ritual, our lust can be extinguished and can purify our soul and body .

On this ritual the monks walk through the fire ground.
