Candle offerings

These candles are out the front of Reikado Hall.
Kiezu no Hi (the eternal flame), the holy fire which Kobo Daishi used as part of his religious training is burning even now after about 1200 years in Reikado Hall, and is under the giant cauldron behind.
It is said that the holy water boiled by this fire works for all sort of disease. It was also used as the pilot light for the “Flame of Peace” of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park.
Wonderful photo of a quite phenomenal story!
