This photograph is the one having taken it on one's return in going to Koshien to see high school baseball. I was a temple from ahead from having wanted to go once. It was remarkable buildings with red and white though I chiefly visited Five-Storied Pagoda and the central hall.
Shitennō-ji is a Buddhist temple in Osaka, Japan.
Prince Shōtoku is said to have constructed this temple in 593. It is the first Buddhist and oldest officially administered temple in Japan, although the temple buildings have been rebuilt over the centuries by War and earthquake. Most of the present structures are from when the temple was last completely rebuilt in 1963. Nowadays, it is independent in various sects of an existing Buddhism of all Buddhism standpoint not stuck to in 1946 as the harmony denomination head temple.
Prince Shōtoku(February 7, 574 – April 8, 622), also known as Prince Umayado was a regent and a politician of the Asuka period in Japan. He was a son of Emperor Yōmei. Shōtoku was appointed as regent in 593 by Empress Suiko. Shōtoku, inspired by Buddha's teachings, succeeded in establishing a centralized government during his reign. In 603, he established the 12 official ranks at court. He is credited with promulgating a Seventeen-article constitution.
The Seventeen-article constitution is according to Nihon Shoki published in 720, a document authored by Prince Shōtoku in 604. It was adopted in the reign of Empress Suiko. The emphasis of the document is not so much on the basic laws by which the state was to be governed, such as one may expect from a modern constitution, but rather it was a highly Buddhist document that focused on the morals and virtues that were to be expected of government officials and the emperor's subjects to ensure a smooth running of the state, where the emperor was to be regarded as the highest authority. It is one of the earliest moral dictatorial documents in history.
(Excerpts from the Articles)
Harmony is to be valued, and the avoidance of wanton opposition to be honoured.
- This constitution text is interesting in the point to do the base to present of a Japanese moral outlook.
