Kumo ni Bonji Menuki - M031
This made in Japan Menuki features dark clouds around the Bonji for Dainichi Nyorai (Bouddha of light). Dainichi Nyorai is the main deity of esoteric Buddhism. It guards the "concealed teachings", in opposition to the revealed teaching preached in other forms of Buddhism. Dainichi, the "great sun", is workshipped as the supreme, primordial sun Buddha. He is the main vector of the syncretism of Buddhism and Shinto, as the main Shinto goddess Amaterasu (goddess of the sun) was considered as a manifestation of Dainichi. The term Nyorai (thus-come one) is a term used for the enlightened Buddhas of the highest rank. He is often considered as the ultimate manifestation of wisdom and reason.
