Dainichi Buddha in Emaki Scrolls


Database of the Otake Dainichi Nyorai engi emaki, a series of three emaki scrolls preserved at the Kōtakuji Shōzen’in temple (Yamagata prefecture), the headquarters and training center of the Haguro Shugendō sect, depicting the provenance of the Otake Dainichi Hall at the same temple. Otake is the name of a woman considered to be an incarnation of the Dainichi (Sk. Mahavairocana) Buddha. This database, also including Otake-related resources in the temple’s collection, was created with the full support of Shōzen’in.
