Naritasan-Temple belongs to the Chisan Sect of Shingon Buddhism. The temple is famous for the goma ritual where many votive offerings are dedicated in front of the Fudo-myo-o and special wooden goma sticks are burnt on the altar. No one other than Shingon priests who have been instructed in the secret rituals can perform this rite. The fire of the goma rite symbolizes the wisdom of Fudo-myo-o, and the wooden goma sticks represent the afflictions of human beings. By burning the goma sticks which have been inscribed with the human afflictions in the fire of Fudo-myo-o’s wisdom, the officiating priest prays with the devotees that their afflictions might be removed.

For a wonderful 2 weeks, I visited my amazing family and friends in Virginia; I had a great time. In the above slideshow you will find many pictures of my journey.
The journey to leave Turkey and return to Turkey was quite tumultuous, to say the least! However, I am back safely and with positivity for the future.
In the slides above you will find pictures of the airports I had to stop in in order to get back home (Frankurt, Sivas, Ataturk, Dulles, Norfolk INT’l and Sabiha Gökçen), roads of the bus trips I had to take to get to and from the airports, my family and other precious things that I thought you might enjoy seeing.
~Until Next Time.
