The sacred lights offered to the victims of the 2011 great earthquake and tsunami in Jochi-ji

The sacred lights of candles dedicated to the tragic victims of the great earthquake and tsunami were quietly burning in front of the Buddha hall.

It seemed to me that the numerous silent prayers for divine mercy and salvation had altered themselves into these warm flickering candlelights and were ascending one by one into the deep night sky to reach out for the souls of those misfortuned people.
