kendoo 剣道 Kendo - 天狗 Tengu and The Way of the Sword

What is the connection between the sword and Daruma ?
During the Edo period, many "WAYS" were developed, based on the principles of Zen and practised by the samurai, and "The Way of the Warrior" (Bushido) was of course one of them. One aspect of Bushido is "The Way of the Sword" (Kendo) and the "Way of the Bow" (Kyuudo).

Tengu no hijutstu 天狗の秘術 Secret Teachings of Tengu
Once upon a time
at the home of 佐藤松吉 Sato Matsukichi there lived a young warrior called 理八 Rihachi.
The family was very poor and Rihachi was sent to work for the rich family of 小田 Oda in 館矢間村 Tateyamamura. From there he could take part in the Kendo training of 高木与惣兵衛 Takagi Yosoemon at the local training hall.
After three years, when Rihachi was 20 years old, there was no other student who could beat him. Yet the teacher did not promote him. Finally Rihachi understood he was not yet ready, pulled himself together and started anew to practise alone at a wild place called 万騎の峰, which the locals called "Tengu no Miya" 天狗の宮 "Palace of the Tengu".
On the mountain path there were dangerous wolves on the road and beautiful ladies trying to distract him and even severed human heads were flying around - but despite all these terrible things, Rihachi was undisturbed and continued his practise.
Finally on the 107th night at midnight the Tenug showed up and took him to the 天狗の角力場 Training place of the Tengu, where he was shown how to fly in space.
Later Rihachi himself was venerated as a 天狗尊 Tengu in the village and he opened a training hall for martial arts.
He became very famous and won many official competitions and got the name Riken 飛剣 "flying sword".

The Yatsugatake Mountains (八ヶ岳連峰 Yatsugatake-renpō) "Mountain with eight peaks" are a volcanic mountain range on the border between Nagano Prefecture and Yamanashi Prefecture .



The mountain range consists of two volcanic groups, Northern Yatsugatake Volcanic Group and Southern Yatsugatake Volcanic Group.
..... According to legend, Yatsugatake was once higher than Mount Fuji, but Konohanasakuya-hime, the goddess of Mount Fuji, tore it down out of jealousy, leaving the collection of peaks we have today.




Mount Tengu 天狗岳 Tengu-dake - Tengudake
is a 2,646m mountain on the border of Chino and Koumi of Nagano in Japan. This mountain is the highest mountains of Northern Yatsugatake Volcanic Group. Named for the mythical avian creatures of folklore, the Tengu.
This mountain has two major peaks, Mount Higashi Tengu (Eastern Tengu), and Mount Nishi Tengu (Western Tengu).

. Legends and Tales from Japan 伝説 - Introduction .

In the forest are sometimes nails of a Tengu on the ground, they say.
They are blue-black and rather large. They almost look like stone and the top part is bent, like the claws of a beast.
The local people go searching for them after a strong rainstorm. When put in water, the solution would cure high fever.

..............................................................................................................................................

During the times of Tokugawa Ieyasu there came a tengu to a temple, where a strong priest lived. He wanted to fight with him and if he won, would get the right arm of the priest. He won, but he did not cut the arm off, but only borrowed the "strength" of the arm.
After seven days, the Tengu came back and returned the "strength" of the arm. The priest was now strong as before.
To show his gratitude, the Tengu also gave him one of his nails.

The Tengu lives in the local mountain and sometimes comes around to visit the villages.
Since the Tengu scratched the mountain ever so often, there are now no trees growing on it.

At the shrine 天石立神社 Amanoiwatate Jinja, the famous samurai 柳生 石舟斎 宗厳 Yagyu "Sekishūsai" Munetoshi (1527 - 1606) practised martial arts. Night after night a Tengu was his partner. Once he thought he had cut the Tengu, but when he looked closer the next morning, there was only a huge rock with a cut.
This is the Ittoseki 一刀石.
Scratches of the Tengu's nails 天狗の爪痕 are still seen on the stone to our day -

In 阿波国津田山 Tsudayama (Awa no Kuni) there was a strong thunderstorm and many strange things fell from heaven.
Among them was the nail of a Tengu, like the plectrum of a Shamisen, rather purple-black and like a stone.

.......................................................................
富山県 Toyama 東砺波郡 Higashitonami district 福野町 Fukunomachi

At 烏堂の宮 Karasudo ni Miya once they heard the voices of two people struggeling and shouting. Next morning they found nails with blood on them. These are the Nails of a Tengu.

山形県 Yamagata 北村山郡 Kitamurayama district 大石田町 Oishida

At the temple 向川寺 Kosen-Ji there are some 手まり石 round stones which the Tengu used to play with - once upon a long time.
During daytime the Tengu kept in hiding, but at night they came out and abducted children. People who saw them lost their mind. Next morning they had some scratches of Tengu nails on their body.
Once during a festival a child was abducted and next morning they found scratches of Tengu nails on all over the stem of the Temple pine tree.



There is another story about the Tengu from Kosen-Ji.
One day the mud wall around the temple was broken down at some parts and the priest repaired it. Nest morning the wall was broken again, even if the night had been quiet and no thunderstorm occured.
On another day the paper doors, which had just been repaired, were torn again the next morning.
Eventually the priest understood: If he had talked bad about the Tengu in the neighbourhood, something would happen during the night. Since then, the priest stopped talking lightly of the Tengu and begun to venerate him.

天狗が登り降りしたという大杉には、天狗の爪跡がはっきりついていると伝えられている。また、向川寺に飾られている大きな石には、天狗が握った時についた指の跡がくっきりと残っている。今の時代には考えられない物語である。
向川寺から坂を登って10分位の所に天狗の相撲取り場が今でも残っている。本当に天狗なんて存在したのだろうか。

There is also a children's song about the Tengu
ナンマイダー ナンマイダー
後ろを見れば 黒滝山
黒滝山は 向川寺
向川寺には 天狗がいる
前を見れば 最上川
最上川には 舟がある
上り下りの 舟がゆく

The area was used by Shugendo priests in a mixture of Shinto and Buddhist lore, including the Tengu, which were very much alive on this mountain.
The locals are fond of their 岩切神 "Stone Cutting Deity".

Iwakiri Okami was the strongest among the Tengu living there. He could split a rocky mountain range with a stomp of his foot.
At Mount Tsubamedake (燕山 Enzan) there is a sanctuary in his honor - 天狗祠.
People often bring salt as an offering and hope to get healed from diseases if they pray here.

Koorinboo 宰府高垣高林坊 / 宰府高垣高森坊 Korin-Bo
Korinbo, Saifu Takagaki - Fukuoka


He is one of the
. 四十八天狗 48 Important Tengu of Japan .

He lived on Hoomanzan 竈門山(宝満山) Mount Homanzan, on the border between 筑紫野市 Chikushino
and 大宰府町 Dasaifu.



Mount Hōman
The mountain is about 830 m high.
It is an important site for Shugendo, and a famous place for rock climbing.
- quote wikipedia-


杖道発祥の地 Mount Homanzan is the place where"the Way of the Stick" to defend oneself originated.

..............................................................................................................................................

- quote -
Jōdō 杖道 Jodo literally means the way of the stick.
Shinto Muso Ryu (SMR) evolved in the castle town of Fukuoka, in the north west of the main southern island of Kyushu.
SMR is a 17th Century art that matches a practitioner equipped with a 4-shaku 2-sun 1-bu (128 cm) long stick against a swordsman. In its complete “old school” (koryu) form SMR comprises seven sets of jo kata, and several ancillary weapon sets including kenjutsu, walking stick (tanjo), sickle and chain (kasuirgama), war fan (tessen) and other arts besides.
It was founded by Musō Gonnosuke Katsuyoshi, a master swordsman of the Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu who embarked on warriors quest (musa shugyo), travelling Japan, looking for opponents to duel.
SMR tradition relates that he met Miyamoto Musashi (possibly in Edo) suffering his only defeat to the two sword (Nito) technique. Following this he travelled seeking answers to the juji-dome block.
At Mount Homan in Kyushu,
above the castle town of Fukuoka he spent 37 days meditating and training – and received a revelation from the Tengu (long-nosed winged demons, famous as the source of several martial traditions) to take the round pole and place it on the water of the moon (Water Moon, or Suigetsu, is the Japanese word used in budo to indicate the solar plexus on the human body).

Musō Gonnosuke Katsuyoshi 夢想權之助勝吉 Muso Gonnosuke
was a samurai of the early 17th century and the traditional founder of the Koryu school of jojutsu known as
Shintō Musō-ryū (神道夢想流 / 神道無想流) Shinto Muso-Ryu.

He is perhaps most famous for his duels with the legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi.
- His first duel with Miyamoto Musashi
- Seclusion, Jojutsu and the second duel
The outcome of the second duel, or even that a second duel occurred, is not conclusively known. The stick-fighting school he founded maintains that Gonnosuke, now armed with the jo, defeated Musashi through the use of the superior length of the jo to keep Musashi's swords out of range of Gonnosuke and thus hinder him from using the X-shaped technique effectively. Gonnosuke had Musashi at his mercy but let him live as a way of returning the favour granted in the first duel. ...

佚斎樗山 Issai Chozan (Chozanshi) (1659 - 1741)
Die wunderbare Kunst einer Katze
tr. Karlfried Graf Dürckheim (1896-1988)



- quote -
This collection of parables written by an eighteenth-century samurai is a classic of martial arts literature. The tales are concerned with themes such as perception of conflict, self-transformation, the cultivation of chi (life energy), and understanding yin and yang. Some of the parables seem light and fanciful, but they offer the reader valuable lessons on the fundamental principles of the martial arts; “The Mysterious Technique of the Cat” is iconic.
The “demon”
in the title story refers to the mythical tengu, who guard the secrets of swordsmanship. A swordsman travels to Mt. Kurama, famous for being inhabited by tengu, and in a series of conversations he learns about mushin (no-mind), strategy, the transformation of chi, and how the path of the sword leads to the understanding of life itself.
The author, Issai Chozanshi,
had a deep understanding of Taoism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Shinto, as well as insight into the central role of chi in the universe—points that are succinctly explained in William Scott Wilson’s fine introduction and extensive endnotes. This is essential reading for anyone who wants to truly understand the philosophical underpinnings of martial arts, and how these principles relate to our existence.

.......................................................................

- quote -
A Graphic Approach to Musashi and Demons: Shambhala's “The Book of Five Rings”
and
“The Demon’s Sermon on the Martial Arts”


..... The story revolves around a young would-be swordsman who ventures into the deep woods to seek the instruction of the tengu, the mythical bird-men of Japan who were said to have instructed the legendary hero Minamoto no Yoshitsune in the ways of warfare. Coming across a group of them holding a discussion in a tree, he settles in to eavesdrop and benefit from their wisdom. The title is somewhat of a misnomer-tengu aren’t demons in the Western sense of the word (that being malevolent beings or spirits from Hell) but more like ‘forest spirits’. Wilson here chooses to break “The Demon’s Sermon” into several parts and use it as a framework to structure the shorter stories. This allows the short stories to reinforce and expand upon the concepts brought up by the tengu, as well as letting the tengu introduce the concepts to be spotlighted in the short stories.
An interesting choice by Wilson, it helps to tie the work together as a unified whole rather than a series of stories. Many of the ideas are the same as those looked at by Musashi in “Five Rings”, again showing how Buddhist and Confucian ideals found their way into sword training. The tengu discuss the concept of no-mind or emptiness, using your chi (the energy that flows through everything) correctly, the importance of practice and discipline, and how adaptability and lack of attachment are vital.
Humorously, the tengu also find most martial arts schools to be lacking in their instruction with too great an emphasis on rigid technique.

Tengu have long been considered the main enemies of Buddhism in Japan.
Tengu are one kind of yokai which there is a direct path to becoming: a human that is so wicked, so evil, that they do not even deserve hell can become a tengu. They are reborn in Tengu-do, or the realm of tengu — a place outside of the wheel of reincarnation from which there is no escape.
Tengu never get a chance at becoming a Buddha or being reborn in a better world.
They are stuck there forever, as a yokai, forever apart from happiness and barred from enlightenment.

tenma 天魔 heavenly evil spirits

. Tenma - Maten 摩天 .

天主大魔王: Sixth Heavenly Pillar Deity.
Number six in the Buddhist realm of lust, greed and desire (yokuai, yokkai 欲界 .. kāma-dhātu. Kamadhatu), the highest realm.
People who are reborn in this heaven tend to take the pleasures of others for themselves and enjoy in the happiness of others.

Since a Tenma Tengu comes from a path of Buddhism, he can not enter one of the six realms of existence.
They live in a sphere outside Buddhism, free of any restraints, pursuing their own lust and desire without fear of punishment.

A friend of priest Myoe named Gedatsu once had visitors from the Tengudo realm at his humble abode, who told him about the dangers of leaving the Buddhist path and venturing into dangerous terrain outside it.
