弘川寺へ行ってきました先週の日曜日に弘川寺へ行ってきました。

ヒロカワデラ・・・?なにやら聴いたことのある名前ですか?
そう、これですね。
弘川寺は西行法師が空寂上人を慕って訪れ、この地で晩年を過ごし没したとされています。「リポジトリ オブ ヒロカワ」は直訳すれば「弘川寺の納骨堂」というところでしょうか。

西行法師と言えばこの歌が有名ですね。
願わくは 花の下にて 春死なむ その如月の 望月のころ”

この歌は辞世の句….というわけではないのですが、「満開の桜 満月の元に 没することができたなら…」とかつて詠んだように、西行法師は旧暦2月の16日(現在の3月23日?)に亡くなりました(桜が咲くには少しだけ早い季節…かな?)。

その事を偲んで、弘川寺の山道には多くの桜が植えられ、地元の人たちの手によって守り育てられています。大阪では桜の名所の1つとして有名です。
