龍【DRAGON】

 

The dragon is an imaginary animal. 

It is regarded as the mysterious existence and has been professed as the deity who presides over phenomena of weather and water in Japan. It is believed to raise a thundercloud or a storm with its roar, and turn into a tornado to soar into and fly in the sky freely. 

 

Originally, it was a snake god established in India. The snake god descended to China as translated into “a dragon” or “a dragon king” and the present image was formed there. Then “a dragon” came over to Japan from China and got to be an object of worship as it was assimilated to Japanese snake worship.

 

In Japan, Buddhist rain-making rituals came to be held during the Asuka era. A dragon was greatly professed during Heian era and people came to pray to a dragon for rainfall or for stopping rain. 

 

~ STORY ~

 

Once upon a time,

terrible drought had continued in the capital.

 

One day, two monks, Kukai of Toji temple and Shubin of Saiji temple,

rivaled each other in the power of Buddhism for rain-making

by Imperial order to try to manage the drought. 

 

Although Shubin had prayed for rain for 7 days first,

it only sprinkled in the capital. 

Then Kukai had also prayed for rain for 7 days,

but they did not have a single drop of rain. 

 

When Kukai had suspicion about and investigated the situation,

he found that Shubin had trapped dragons in a water jar

with his spiritual power in a fit of jealousy toward the power of Kukai.

 

Fortunately,

Kukai found that only a dragon had got out of the clutches of Shubin. 

Kukai called over the dragon and

succeeded in bringing rain all the country round over a span of 3 days.
