So, why all these sôhei anyway?
- The more I read, the more I'm wondering what it was that Enryakuji and
Miidera were fighting so violently about all those years. It seems that
almost every major conflict in Japan, Enryakuji monks are on one side and
Miidera monks are on the other (with a few exceptions). Is this a secular
dispute between the two or religious differences? Or is it just
coincidence because the two are both located in Heian-kyô?
