Shomyo Chant New Youtube Video

In April 2020, during the lockdown caused by the corona virus, Junko Ueda recorded a shomyo piece called ‘Kujô-Shakujô’. Ancient tradition says that Kujô-Shakujô Sutra has miraculous powers. We pray evil spirits will be driven away, the earth will be purified and the world will be the place of peace for all living things.
