Noh Taima Umano Masaki


Kyogen Sakka

Taro Kaja is heading to the capital to visit his master's uncle.

Now that he has arrived in the capital, the Kaja, who does not know his uncle's face or whereabouts, starts calling out to him on the street. Then a man who claims to be his uncle appears, and the Kaja takes the man home with great enthusiasm. However, the master is in a panic when he sees the man he has brought home. He tells the master that the man is a master thief named Migoi Sakka, and tries to deal with him and send him away peacefully, but...


Noh Taima

On his way back from a pilgrimage to Mikumano, a traveling Buddhist monk visits Taima Temple at the foot of Mount Nijo in Yamato Province. Then an old nun and a young woman appear, praising Amida Buddha, and tell the monk about the Dyeing Hall Well, where the great quantities of lotus threads collected for the mandala were washed and dyed in five colors, and the cherry tree on which the threads were hung to dry.

The old nun then admires the spring scenery in full bloom and tells the story of the origins of the Taima Mandala handed down at this temple. Chujohime, who once wished to worship Amida in the flesh, secluded herself in this temple, spending her days chanting the Nembutsu. Then Amida Buddha appeared in the form of an old nun, and with his help the mandala was woven...

Then they reveal that they are in fact the nun and young woman who appeared at that time (incarnations of Amida Buddha and Kannon Bodhisattva), and the two disappear high into the sky on a purple cloud.

Soon, Princess Chujo, who has become a singing and dancing bodhisattva, appears with a sutra in her hand, praises Buddhism, gives the sutra to the monk, and dances solemnly...

The Taima Mandala is said to have been woven overnight. This profound religious drama by Zeami unfolds a world of ecstasy.
