Mt. Hiei Article

There is a decent article on Mt. Hiei I found last night.  There might be some reconciliation now between the temple and the Oda family.  News to Mt. Hiei.  You have always started trouble since the Medieval Age.  Starting trouble since the Heian Era.  The monks of Mt. Hiei either, prayed their way out, bought their way out, or fought their way out of trouble.  If you read the Shincho-Ko ki, most of the priests there were not saintly.  Nobunaga had enough of their shenanigans and burned the temple to ashes and slaughtered anyone who was in his way in 1571.  As for the present time being?  The incident happen centuries ago and the temple was rebuilt.  Glad people are talking about the temple and Nobunaga.

Tenka no tame!
