1000 Gates in Kyoto - Heart of Sutra
Fushimi Inari Taisha (伏見稲荷大社, ) is a Shinto shrine in south of Kyoto. It is famous for its thousands of torii gates, which include trails behind his main entrance buildings. The trails lead into the wooded forest from the feet of sacred Mount Inari, 764 ft above sea level with lots of trails up the mountain and many smaller shrines for around more than 3 miles. If i have to give to myself a reason why i am into Sutra, well , i don't know. i should give to myself another one thousands more reasons why i am a lot into it, and probably i will not find the answer or any explanation for this. I take things as they come and I go deeper into the things I like. It makes me smile when some tourists visit the main top places in Japan
and in 5-9 days they believe to know Japanese people. They seems to be lots of Folco Quilici (RIP) when they actually spend time in the plane and hotels at least for 4 days in their one and only japanese
week vacation. When I meditate, I relax, but I have never broken my ties with my culture and religion. But the "form is nothing but emptiness and emptiness is nothing less than form and that the form is only empty", it fascinates me a lot and i can not say if it transmits me the perfect Wisdom in its most concise form, but the text is very beautiful. Now, despite i am still studying it, his dramatic structure guides me through its mysterious content. Many Easterners listen to it even if they do not know its meaning. The Heart Sutra. With it i begun to enter a new world, a foreign world, something strange, something unfamiliar .."interactions between subjects and objects" Sutra & the mark of Emptiness. I am no expert yet, but i wish soon to understand emptiness more than how i approach my existence (to be empty of form) rather than how i define it-to say something is empty is not to say it doesn't exist. Very complicated concept...
