Product Description

According to legend, Buddhism was introduced to Japan in 538, brought there by diplomats from King Seong, the king of Baekje, a kingdom in what is now Korea. King Seong, who was a Buddhist himself, sent Buddhist monks and nuns to the Emperor of Japan. They took with them Buddhist scriptures, and a letter telling the Emperor that Buddhism contained all true things, and that the adoption of Buddhism would lead to happiness and harmony. Buddhism quickly got support in Japan from the powerful Soga family, who converted to Buddhism and established the first Buddhist temples. In 594, under the rule of Empress Suiko, Buddhism became officially recognized by the Japanese government, and Empress Suiko and her regent, Prince Shotoku, built the famous Horyu-ji and Hokki-ji temples. They served as the early centers of Buddhism in Japan. From these beginnings, Buddhism has gone on to spread all throughout Japan, and most modern Japanese consider themselves Buddhists. Some Japanese Buddhist groups have even sent missionaries to other countries to teach others about the path to enlightenment. Staying on that path can be helped by our Crescent Zafus, which are designed to support your practice by promoting circulation and comfort. Our Black Crescent Zafu can be a rich addition to your sitting, and whether you are an experienced practitioner or a novice, it will help you stay on the path to enlightenment.
