gHearing one sound is washing one sin away.his a saying about Bonshou.
Bonshou is a Buddhist bell which breaches a darkness of ignorance and helps
people attain enlightenment.
It was put a soul by a prayer and inaugurated in 2005, Dec. 11, with wishes
for salvation of people, prosperity of Mikkyou and peace of the world.
This Bonshou is 1. 7 meters in height, 1 meter in diameter and weighs 1.
1 tons. When it was being cast, people wrote wishes on a copper plate and
put it inside.
When you ring the Bonshou with a wish for cleansing yourself, your worldly
desires would disappear and wishes would be obtaind with a pleasant sound
of the bell.
