Goma Prayer

Raging flames, burning away worldly desires

Goma means “to burn” in Sanskrit. As fire burns away everything on the ground, including even defilement and worldly desires, it is believed to be sacred. We offer your wishes at “Gomadan” altar by making a holy fire in front of Honzon (principal image of Buddha), Kurikara Fudo Myo-o.

365dayYour wishes will be offered in prayer all year round.
