Shingon Mikkyo

Shingon (Mantra), Mikkyo (Esoteric) is a form of Tantric Buddhism introduced to Japan 1300 years ago Kobo Daishi Kukai, who was the only student to acquire all of the teachings of his master Hui Kuo. Since then it has remained an unbroken lineage of teacher and student relationships. Its goal is lo realize enlightenment in this lifetime and lead a productive and benevolent life. Shingon Mikkyo is also known for its healing tradition called Kaji, which is the transference of the Buddha’s grace instilling a sacred peace of mind and increasing ones life force.

Washo Saito is the only Shingon Buddhist Abbot living in Australia and has been teaching Shingon Meditation (Ajikan and Gachirinkan) for a number of years.

Ajikan Meditation

Ajikan is a meditation focusing on the Sanskrit "A" syllable and Gachirinkan a meditation that focuses on the moon. Its benefits include relief from stress and anxiety and attainment of a peaceful mind. This practice is not difficult and requires around 15 minutes a day for beginners. Rev. Washo Saito’s teacher, Rev. Keisho Nagao, before retiring was second in charge of Koyasan Shingon headquarters in Japan.

Meditation Sessions

Sessions are held each Saturday at 11:15am-12:15 pm at The Buddhist Council of NSW headquarters, Level 1, 441 Pacific Highway Crows Nest, ph: (02) 9966 8893
