incantation

A prayer ritual, known as yosekaji, which designed to invoke the Buddha's compassion. It was performed in the prescnce of many people who had been asked to gather for the occasion. An incantation required an officiant, who was usually a yamabushi, and a medium, who was usually a young girl. Since illness was generally attributed to the presence of evil spirits, the yamabushi's task was to identify the evil spirit to be exorcised and drive it out.
