流水灌頂

Running water baptism

Today’s photo comes from the bridge (御廟橋) everyone must cross in order to reach Kobo Daishi’s mausoleum (弘法大師御廟) on Koyasan. I’ve never seen one of these before (or since), but my understanding is that this is set up for those who died in water accidents or who have some sort of water-related ailment. The pure water in the Tama River running past Kobo Daishi’s final resting place is supposed to bless them or their souls or something.
