9 squares

Postby Lunarious1987 on Fri Sep 09, 2016 5:18 am

Hello!!

In Japan. I came across a practise of 9 (visual) squares, usually drawn in the air by hands, for good luck or something. Whats it called?

L.,

Reminds me of "Tic-Tac-Toe" ( ...but doing that in the air would be a real challenge to the attention, visualization, and memory. We do it on paper).

I hope someone knows the name of the practice you ask about. It seems potentially interesting. Maybe it's not Buddhist, but from a native Japanese religion, or magical custom.
