This morning I thought I would share some images from one my favourite places Japan! This one is from inside Tōdai-Ji temple Nara. The largest Bronze Buddah inside the largest wooden building in the world! #Nara #japan #travelphotography #buddah #igjapan #archives #travelph #travelpic
Todai-ji Temple, Japan - Binzuru (Pindola Bharadvaja), Wood, Edo Era, 18th Century. At Todaiji Temple in Nara. Pindola was one of the sixteen arahats, who were disciples of Shaka Nyorai. Pindola is said to have excelled in the mastery of occult powers. It is commonoly believed in Japan that when a person rubs a part of the image of Binzuru, and then rubs the corresponding part of his/her body, the ailment there will disappear.
