SAITO HOMA is an outdoor fire ritual originating in Shugendo practices. The ritual implements and ceremonial robes used in saito homa rites contain certain esoteric meanings and are reminiscent of how Shugendo ascetics created ritual spaces in the mountains to train.
At Shinnyo-en, the symbols of fire and water are brought together in hope and healing. Our services express the wish of founding Master Shinjo, who explained in October 1985 as follows:
“My sincere hopes are that we can realize a future where all can live out their full potential and, as every form of life is interconnected, our humble efforts will build one upon another to benefit every corner of the earth.”
Join us at Suntec on the 8th Oct, 3pm to attend the broadcast Service of Saito Homa.
