Peak of the four seasons

Courtesy of the mountaineering asceticism

I said the peak of the four seasons until a mountaineering asceticism sect abolition law of (1872) was given in Haguroyama in 1872, and four times peak ascetic practices (nyubushugyo) containing were performed in a year. nyuho means mountains,
The ascetic practices are lines of the interior of the womb. A departed soul receives a spirit of father and dwells in the interior of the womb of mother, and I have divine power of God through ascetic practices, and the life grows up and is death and courtesy of the reproduction to be reborn.

Spring peak

Only the priests of the large guide temple gathered and worshiped you and did the grain soul that I brought up at a winter peak and were courtesy to congratulate the New Year by a praying ceremony of expectation of a good harvest to pray for a good harvest of the rice growing. As the spring peak was performed only at a temple of Yamagami, I became extinct after the Meiji Restoration.

Summer peak

The Buddhist plans the restoration of youth of the life of the self through courtesy of the mock death reproduction and is a peak to enshrine ancestor's soul, and to cheer up.
Dewa Sanzan did it with Miyama with Mount Yudono on Haguroyama, the ridge of southwest on the northern edge around highest peak Tsukiyama and I called it with god deified in three shrines in Kumano district honorific title of a Japanese god until gods and Buddha separation of the Meiji and saw it. Do that this Miyama comes to be called Dewa Sanzan with Miyama before it with Haguroyama, Tsukiyama, Hayama (the mountains of Tsukiyama where a mountain range extended to the east) in (1570-92) after Genki, Tensho; Mount Yudono of Miyama was all-out as Okuno-in Temple. And ascetic practices to run this Miyama were called a line (sankansandonogyo) of sansekisanto and were assumed the secret of the peak in the summer. Potalaka Jodo of the Goddess of Mercy promising temporal peace, Buddhists' paradise, Hayama of the Amitabha leading all creatures in the past world where the dead person proceeds to Tsukiyama are lapis lazuli light Jodo of the The Buddha of Healing except the suffering of all creatures for eternity, and, in the times of the mixture of Buddhism and Shintoism, Haguroyama crosses each Seki by French protection and death warrant of each Jodo and preaches it when all of the past, present, and future proceed to mitsuiwakiyomedo (Mount Yudono) of the condensed Dainichi Buddha, and a living body enters Nirvana. It is the present in the mountains → The past (posthumously) → Future (reproduction) and flow, normal past (during the lifetime) → Now → It unfolds in space-time unlike the order called future (posthumously).
The prayer Buddhist from the countries runs Miyama at this time, but the Buddhist finishes death and the courtesy of the burial of remains in home town and I put on the white robe which is the departure of the dead person in the body and aim at Miyama. It resigns itself to a spirit of father having dwelled in the interior of the womb of mother I assume a journey a journey to the other world road, and to do one worship at a shrine at night basket (one hotel) in the dorter of the Haguro foot of a mountain. When a fetus is protected to ribs of mother in the interior of the womb, it does kanso to show the framework of the hut in sankago (two hotels) in Tsukiyama mountains. And I see an object of worship of Mount Yudono, and a greater omentum and the Seven-Five-Three Festival take it, and it is said that sankago (three hotels) in Oisawa, Hondoji is to resign itself to having been born happily. I call this a taking the Buddhist vows peak (kechiennyubu) containing and am an ascetic practice of the restoration of youth of the life of the self. In addition, it is a line that the peak is dedicated to ancestor's soul in the summer and cheers up. It is the place where a manes soul to wait for time of the resurrection subsides at the same time as the mountain is precincts. I receive going, the memorial service of the descendant and am purified, and it is said to the mountain where the post mortem soul is near the village that it is ancestor's soul after time and rises to the high mountain. In addition, the soul held a service for gives a descendant a blessing as Japanese spirit, and it is said that it is a wild soul, and the soul who is not worshiped gives an evil, and a holding a ceremony for the dead place that is why to worship the spirit of a dead person on each mountain of Miyama is established. In the times of the mixture of Buddhism and Shintoism, the execution charges kept saitomamorima with the person of the Tsukiyama hut in saitodan of Tsukiyama Hongu on the night of July 13 and sent ancestor's soul to a descendant after having prayed for the entering Nirvana of the all parts of the world ten thousand soul and performed a mass for the dead without any surviving relatives for the ancestor's soul that there was not of the house which returned. On the night of August 13, I keep make a sacred bonfire with brushwood goma in the north side of Hongu and hold a departed soul memorial service now. Peace of the world is kept by this worshiping the departed soul of mountains, and clearing itself from the vindictive spirit and depends on Old yorino faith to bring an abundant harvest in its turn. Thus, the Buddhist of the peak holds an ancestor's soul memorial service in the summer in Tsukiyama.

Autumn peak

By ascetic practices to become a mountaineering ascetic, I put weight for the saving the world. Therefore, in a line training a specialized mountaineering ascetic, I am called a peak of the countries Buddhist monk success in life. The success in life means that I escape from the world, but includes a meaning as the success in life because I receive the permission of the ranking promotion by stacking a peak in autumn.
 The peak is also expressed in autumn in a line of sansekisanto. It is the first barrier of the life one hotel (Minamitani) is considered to be the interior of the womb (the past) of mother when I apply the explanation to a flow before the Meiji era, and to train here. Finishing interior of the womb ascetic practices, and going over to the womb outside (this world) of two hotels (Fukkoshi) once.
The ways from Minamitani who should cross the sea of the interior of the womb to Fukkoshi cross this very much and are called a way (I pass and rise). It is the second barrier I am born outside the womb of two hotels in this way, and to train. Passing to the life after death (world of future after death) of three hotels (very much) through Seki of pains in the life in this world once. There is a slope called the coastal highway Hill (kaidozaka) from Fukkoshi that should cross the raw sea in this now in the very much madeno interval. The exerciser moves to three hotels, but I keep make a sacred bonfire with brushwood goma first at two hotels and do by oneself one's funeral (praying for the souls of premature death funeral service) in this way. The exerciser who became a dead person crosses red Sogou drifting to the north foot of Tsukiyama 48 degrees, and an apparition of a living person waiting for time of the resurrection proceeds to sankosawa (sankozawa) becoming quiet. It is said that it receives own way and my soul. It is the third barrier I celebrate a spirit of a dead person to a body in this way and be crowded, and to stay at three hotels. And it says once, and it transcends the Sansei in the future the past at the present, and it is to get everlasting life to cross the future Dead Sea. I go down the mountain, but I write this as birth and read in this way with denari. It is birth of the new life and right means reproduction.
The ancient times ascetic practices period was 75 days, but it was 30th when it was from and was shortened in (1669) for 15 days in 1669, and it was from (1949) from (1911) at seven days in 1949 for ten days in 1911. Being said that even pro-brothers must not recite the ascetic practices content of the peak in autumn, but there not being it, and this not being able to talk about in the interior of the womb to reason memory originally.

Winter peak

It is a line of the thing prohibition to wait for the expression of the grain soul to staple grains mainly involving the rice. It is a mountaineering ascetic of Haguro foot of a mountain Toge-mura to perform this line. Two Buddhist monks whom pine Saint to is called by set up the altar in the home and put staple grains in interest shop Saint (as soon as I ask Hijiri) that I modelled in Tagoya and it lasts for 99 days and prays for the satanophany of the grain soul earnestly and performs a basket rino line, and, at night on the last day of the year to hit it after 100 days of one of completion of a vow, consequent omen is tried.
The person to make the part of pine Saint no was limited and had to be provided with the following condition until the Meiji era. ①I am born in the house of the being married mountaineering asceticism of 336 Bo. ②I say the large work and take the procedure of the approval as soon as I am born. ③I enter the autumn peak at number eno 15 years old and become a mountaineering ascetic. ④I serve the temple turn of the head office on Haguroyama. ⑤I make service for a high priest scheme, and a high priest, rank of kenshosoto are forgiven. A person long most of the number of years added to the large work among the people who satisfied ⑤ as things mentioned above from ① in rank (ijo) pine Saint; was appointed turning point (sendo) pine Saint ni the next person. The person who served pine Saint o is supplementary serareta in prime kendaisoto of the mountaineering ascetic. It is limited to the person who experienced many lines, and the person from pine Saint ninareru can call in this way whether a winter peak is the peak which is important to the people of the farming zone how.
 The ending a religious service event of the winter peak is called pine annual festival (I tear Rei carrying it) after the Meiji era and is inherited in now. When see a series of flows of the current pine annual festival; 3:00 p.m. - rope firewood act of God. Akira Daimatsu who chose it is chopped in ekioni giving an evil to farming by youths belonged to for each pine Saint ni and I throw it to the worshiper and am given this. I am told that the devil does not come when I move this to the edge of the eaves of the house. The rectification that - Akira Daimatsu is round at 6:00 p.m. As ekioni where this was chopped brought back breath again, is round to draw it to the place to burn down; repair. 8:00 p.m. - rope judgment. Because the value of the rope is decided which place of Akira Daimatsu you hang it in by a rope to draw Akira Daimatsu, I decide which town you give a rope hung where. Competition for 9:00 p.m. - omen. Six Buddhist monks following a turning point in rank are divided from side to side and compete with a crow for choice omen to a rabbit. Akira Daimatsu is discounted sequentially. I choose it on the site of the Haguro mountaineering asceticism on a garden and I draw Akira Daimatsu who is ekioni outside a site and burn it down, and I burn, and victory or defeat is fixed at force of the fire at this time with condition. Distribute - country at 0:00 a.m.; an act of God. When this identifies a territory of Haguro, and finish this; of the fire beat it, and there is an act of God. As I become corrupt, and the fire weakened naturally because this burnt ekioni, I cut and bring down new clean, powerful fire and pray for All the world is at peace, country peace. I choose it and sprinkle earthen floor of hooku which assumed staple grains filled with the grain souls after noborishinsai a pine Saint ga prayer place on the country. With the prayer of the staple grains abundant harvest, the rice pays illness, and power as a thing having effect of an incantation or a curse to cause continuing for a long time and happiness and prosperity harmony of the nature prays for what is shown.
