Prayers & Ceremonies

Goma Ritual

護摩修行

Goma, or homa in Sanskrit, means to burn. This ceremony represents the burning of bonnou, which is the source of suffering, by Buddha’s fire of wisdom.

For the Goma Ritual, a platform is set up with various offerings in front of the Fudō Myō-ō. Then, a special firewood named Goma-ki is burnt down, and mantras are chanted in Mikkyō’s characteristic prayers.

The Goma fire is the symbol of wisdom, and the firewood represents bonnou (the source of suffering).  Through the Goma Ritual, the bonnnou represented by firewood is burned down by Fudō Myō-ō’s fire of wisdom, and along with the believers, their wishes are purified while they pray for their fulfillment.

Available prayers are:

– household safety
– business prosperity
– health safety
– protection against disasters
– warding off evil
– recovery from illness
– success for surgical operation
– recovery from injury
– fulfillment of one’s earnest wishes
– company prosperity
