Exclusive item from Japanese accessory brand “Kuubokumon”.
Bonji is Sanskrit characters started in ancient India and used essentially by Shingon Buddhists in Japan to write out mantra and sutras in Sanskrit. It was introduced to Japan by Ku-Kai in 806 AD after he had studied Sanskrit and Mantrayana Buddhism in China. It is believed that each word represents Buddha and that it has a power to protect people and guide them to right direction just by wearing it. Nowadays, it is often used for tatoo, T-shirts design etc with sense of reverence.
This word represents Acala (Fudo Myoo in Japanese), who is the best known of the Five Wisdom Kings of the Womb Realm. The Sanskrit term Acala means “immovable”. Acala is the destroyer of delusion and the protector of Buddhism. His immovability refers to his ability to remain unmoved by carnal temptations. Despite his fearsome appearance, his role is to aid all beings by showing them the teachings of the Buddha, leading them into self-control. He is seen as a protector and aide in attaining goals.
