Statues crafted here are painstakingly molded, cast, finished, and colored by the hands of craftsmen who have inherited traditional manufacturing techniques. We hope this series will support you spiritually while contributing to the aesthetic of your interior as you go about your daily activities.
In Japan, Fudo Myoo (Acala) is widely popular and venerated, including in the context of Esoteric Buddhism, which includes practices that utilize mantras to attain enlightenment. One of the mantra versions chanted in veneration of Fudo Myoo is: "No-maku Samanda Bazara (da) Senda Makaroshada Sowataya (um) Tarata Kanman."
It said that Kukai brought Fudo Myoo (Acala) into Japan. Kukai is posthumously known as 弘法大師 (Kobo Daishi) and founded the Shingon Buddhism in Japan following his returning from his Kentoshi mission in China (or to be more precise, the Tang Dynasty).
Although the Fudo Myoo looks as though it is a god of battle or war, it actually is very merciful and he provides salvation to people who suffer from polluting thoughts such as greed, hatred and delusion, all of which result in suffering. It is thought that he makes use of his lariat and sword to eliminate such polluting thoughts, thereby helping us attain enlightenment.
In Japan, it's thought that all people, based on their Chinese zodiac sign, have a guardian Buddha or Bodhisattva who provides lifetime-protection. The belief is that by worshiping such Buddha or Bodhisattva, you can lead a peaceful life; and because we think that good fortune will come by placing objects related to your Chinese zodiac around you, Japanese believe that the guardian Buddha or Bodhisattva will also act as a guardian of good fortune, while protecting you from disaster and strengthening the good parts of your character and holding back the bad parts.
