they pretty much became open to anyone who requested lodgings-whether or not the temple really wanted them there. Turning away large groups of angry, armed men without any defenses of your own had a good chance of resulting in seeing your temple getting burned down. Remember how Nishi-
honganji did everything they could to get rid of the Shinsengumi when they set up shop at their temple?


I see - I suppose this assumption that anyone could take over a temple also indicates a certain lack of regard for Buddhism. Yoshida Shoin certainly was quite anti-Buddhist (I'll look up the details over the weekend), and from my reading the preferred deity among Choshu shishi was Sugiwara no Michizane. Very Happy

Don't we have a thread centering on Yoshida somewhere around here? It would be interesting for tomorrow...
