E N O S H I M A I S L A N D
there is here a training centre for esoteric Buddhism
(who perhaps remains suspended between life and death)
waiting for Maitreya
led by Master Ekan
who "accomplished previously untrodden
the Goma in which 1 million wooden sticks were burned"
by Master Gosen
his leading disciple
known as the "completer of
the incantation method of Kokomo Jumonji-ho"
1 million times over 100 days.
Ekan and Gosen conduct the Goma-ritual
"the desperate act"
or so called
by ordinary monks.
During the Goma-ritual,
one challenges the body and soul
in front of a flame over 3 meters high.
The Masters always hope that all peoples of the world
rest in peace
have wishes granted.
