ocr-generated Sodan and Meichodo


Situated beyond the Meichodo hall is the sodan, which is an octagonal enclosure

with a roof made of thatched cypress bark.
Built in 1660, by Ryonyo Shonin, the thirteenth Hongwanji Monshu (head
priest), the sodan houses an image of Shinran Shonin, the founder of the Jodo
祖壇・明著堂
Shinshu Buddhist tradition, and is where his remains are interred. To the sides of
めいちょ どう
the sodan, are the graves of the successive Hongwanji Monshu and Urakata
(Monshu's spouse). Jodo Shinshu followers and families may request to have their
remains interred near Shinran Shonin whom they adore very much so that they
could feel close to him. This sodan, the gravesite of Shinran Shonin, is recognized
and regarded by many as the origin of Hongwanji.

Erected in front of the sodan is the worship hall known as the Meichodo. Built
in 1709 during the tenure of Hongwanji's fourteenth Monshu, Jakunyo Shonin, the
hall which is approximately eighteen meters by nine meters in size, is
characterized by the architectural style with the absence of supporting pillars in the
interior. The wooden plaque with the Chinese characters, MXH (Meichodo) was
ひわだぶき
written by Jakunyo Shonin.
As we follow in the footsteps of our predecessors and stand here before the
Meichodo, let us reflect on the life of Shinran Shonin and recite the Nembutsu,
Namo Amida Butsu,
Hongwanji
