■Goma Service

 

 It is Sourin-ji Temple where Goma service was performed for the first time in Japan.

Now, what kind of rituals the Goma service is?

In Goma, a priest burns small sticks of wood on the altar, reciting sutras to pray to Buddha. The flame is believed to burn up our foul passions.

The Goma sticks for the service are dedicated by worshippers. Why don't you dedicate a stick with your name and wish written on it? It will be burned on the altar in Goma services held in the main hall several times a month.
