In the Shingon tradition of Buddhism, the Sanskrit letter “A” is more than just a letter. It’s a mantra representing the truth of heaven and earth, a segue into the universe. At Koyasan, most temples offer their guests the opportunity to experience Ajikan meditation. Using the Sanskrit letter “A” as a focus point for meditation, you’ll be taught how to breathe and what to do. Then…serenity reigns…even if you can’t feel your legs anymore. Has Kobo Daishi really been doing this for over a millennium?
