Given that it is the 100th anniversary of the temple (or the coming of the sect to America), do you think Shugyo Daishi could be the first American abbot?

But in any case, after two dozen posts in this thread, Tornadoes, perhaps you could ask someone there who he is.

If I happen to see someone there out front then I will but I'm not going to go knock on the door just to ask that. Periodically I see someone, probably a member, and when I do I will ask.

According to this site about Kûkai, in Nagaoka's Shôryû-ji, there is a statue of Shugyô Daishi 修行大師 which is explained to be Kûkai/Kôbô Daishi during his pilgrimage across the whole country. )

Yes, thank you for the information. So it appears that Shugyo is a name given to one who is on I assume a Buddhist pilgrimage or seeking a path, etc. Very interesting. I assume it is a name for a Buddhist pilgrimage rather then other types of path seeking because I don't think we would call Miyamoto Musashi during his pilgrimage or path as Shugyo Musashi.

Don't assume anything and I am only half joking this time. As Beth suggested, go ask priest at the temple and yes, you should knock on a door rather than let this drag on. Consider it investigative scholarship. Carry on, lad!

Actually, Shugyô-daishi means something like "pilgriming great master", as daishi is not a name but a title.

I asked Bishop Seicho Asahi of the Koyasan Temple about the statue. Below is his response.

Shugyo means discipline or practice the Dharma. Shugyo Daishi is a form that Kobo Daishi is practicing the Dharma.

In Gassho,
Bishop Seicho Asahi

And now you know. And remember, 'knowing' is half the battle.
