    Default Shugendo

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to know if shugendo is still practiced, and where.
    Any URLs you have to suggest?

    ->If this is not the appropriate forum, please move it to where it belongs. Thank you!

    In the 70's, Carmen Blacker wrote The Catalpa Bow and described a Shugendo ascetic journey she was allowed to go on. She went back some years later and said the practice was pretty tepid compared to what she'd seen (itself a pale imitation of prior practices.) Remeber, Shugendo was actively suppressed by the government. What's left is probably just fragments.

    There was a special issue of the Japanese Journal of Religious Studies devoted to Shugendo: June–September 1989, 16/2–3, Shugendo and Mountain Religion in Japan, Edited by Royall Tyler and Paul L. Swanson. Read the nine articles in full text at http://www.nanzan-u.ac.jp/SHUBUNKEN/.../jjrs/jjrs.htm (Click on "CUMULATIVE CONTENTS (on-line from 1974 )" on left side of page and then do a find on "Royall Tyler" on the linked page. That'll take you to the issue.)

    Also, there was a post somewhere in the last few days with a link to a Shugendo page. Someone else may recall it for you. Hope this helps. Let us know what you come up with.

    All the best.

    His name is Sylvain Guintard and as far as I know he is legit.

    Hope that helps.
