  • 竹林寺の山号は生馬山で 宗派は律宗です 本尊が文殊菩薩 創建年(伝)奈良時代初期 開基は(伝)行基との事です 竹林寺は 明治以降には廃寺になりましたが 昨今の1997年に再興され 現在なお整備をされているとの事ですが お寺に由縁する 有名な僧侶のお墓が二つも有り 文化財保護は とても良い事で 喜びでもあります お寺の東50mには 高僧であった行基のお墓が また西150m程には 僧侶忍性の墓があります お寺は 生駒山麓の丘陵地の 緑に囲まれ静かで落ち着いた雰囲気漂う所にあります お参りをしていると 日課として健康保持の散策を兼ねて 参られる方を多く見受けました ソノ様子を伺っていると 決まった様に 竹林寺→境内奥山の石仏群→ 行基さん→忍性さん の順番に廻られていました 私は今日初めて 行基さんのお墓の存在を知り お参りに来たのですが 竹林寺や忍性さんの事や お参りに来られる方達とのお話や 様々な事に触れ 多くを知る事が出来 意義ある一時を過ごせ イイ日になりました❗

  • 静かで落ち着いたいいお寺でした。

  • 行基さんの墓所。 奈良国立博物館の(僧)忍性展で知りました。 行基の遺骨が発見、 、掘り出されたところに忍性が遭遇、人々の救済に尽くした行基が忍性の活動のモデルであったことから、忍性は参籠やたびたび参拝をし、自分の遺骨の一部を納めてもらうよう遺言し、実行された。 (良観坊忍性 草創した伽藍83、供養した御堂154、結界した寺院79、描いた地蔵菩薩像1355、病人貧者に与えた衣服3万3千着、架けた橋189、修築した道71、掘った井戸33 などなど)
