お花見の場所取りをやっているようでした。
ゴザを敷き詰めて、なにやら忙しそうだった
ので、写真に収めておきました。

It looked as if she was securing a place for flower-viewing.
She seemed pretty busy, spreading and securing a mat,
so I went ahead and took some pictures.

元気な心霊写真です。これだけはっきりと霊が
写っているなんてなかなか無いです。
インチキじゃ無いですよ?
Translation
A photo of some lively spirits. These don't
really capture the essence of them, though.
They aren't fake ghost.

あの世の蝶って眩しく光るものなんですね。
今度、あの世特集でも組もうかな。
「図解!3倍楽しくあの世に逝く方法」うーん。
Translation
Butterflies of the Netherworld are so bright and radiant.
I might just do a feature on this place next time.
"Explanation with pictures! How to have three times more fun dying and going to the Netherworld!" Hmm.

Notes[edit]

  1. The kanji ("esoteric") in the card's prefix is taken from Mikkyō (密教), a term that literally means "esoteric teachings". It refers to the esoteric Vajrayana practices of Shingon Buddhism. The term also applies to the esoteric practices of Tendai and Kegon Buddhism.
  2. "Odaishi-sama" is one of several names used for Kūkai, founder of the Shingon school of Buddhism. "The Secret Key to the Heart Sutra" (般若心経秘鍵 Hannya-shingyō hiken) is Kūkai's annotated translation of the Vajrayana.
  3. 護摩 (Goma): a Shingon ritual in which boards are ceremonially burnt. The boards represent one's troubles and accidents, and pray health, prosperity, and divine aid. The most demanding Goma training uses eight thousand wooden boards. Practitioners of Shugendo also adopted this ceremony.
  4. 酔生夢死: a phrase meaning "to live audaciously, and to then die as if peacefully dreaming".
  5. En no Ozunu: founder of Shugendo, a mystical Japanese religion that combines aspects of Shinto, Taoism, and Buddhism.
  6. 死蝶浮月 (shi-chou-fu-getsu): likely a pun on 花鳥風月 (ka-chou-fuu-getsu), a phrase that means "beautiful aspects of nature".
