DETAILED EXPLANATION OF “Shikin Haramitsu Daikomyo”:

Shikin Haramitsu Daikomyo” is a prayer that is done at the beginning of the class, in order to get our minds into the present moment,  and make negativity stay out of the dojo’s door.  There is no room for “ego”, we are here to improve ourselves and training  is a vehicle for enlightenment, whether this means blessing, wisdom, or peace of mind. It is 9 syllables of power and has several meanings. Use the one that suits you best. You may know the name of a bird, but if you do not know anything about it, makes no sense. The most important is what lies behind the words.

Shikin” presents four concepts of life: 1. merciful heart that has love for everything 2. sincere heart that follows the right way, 3. harmonized heart, 4. dedicated heart.

Daikomyo” is the enlightenment that must exist within us as we train, but also in everything else in life. It briefly means “I expect a bright future with enlightenment through love, honesty, naturalness and devotion. I expect happiness in the moment. Every light and every sound, can answer the questions that I have in life. All the answers are in front of us, if we are enlightened enough to see them. This phrase has power. It is the way of the warrior.
