薬師寺金堂月光・日光菩薩様/Moonlight Bodhisattva & Sunlight Bodhisattva of Yakushiji

日光菩薩像/Sunlight Bodhisattva Statue of Yakushiji

やわらかな夜のライトのもとでこのお姿・・・ Just stunned with the noble beauty of the Sunlight Bodhisattva under soft night lights

(月光菩薩様は手ぶれしてしまい掲載できなくてお詫びします/Sorry my photo of the Moonlight Bodhisattva statue is too blurry to show here)

2008年展覧会図録より/Out of my catalog of Tokyo National Museum exhibition. The left Statue is Moonlight Bodhisattva.


I had ever seen the two Bodhisattva statues of Japan's national treasure several times in the daytime, or, and at Tokyo National Museum Exhibition when they were out of Yakushiji for the first time in their history.

This time at night for the first time under the light of the autumn full moon, I felt wrapped with the special silent gentleness and mercifulness emitted from them, and a peace of mind infiltrate through me. A very rare experience it was!
