‘Bokuyo-ko (撲揚講)’ is one of the religious meetings held by Kofuku-ji Temple. So far, researches have not paid enough attention to each individual meeting. For, historical materials are not easily available. I investigated the materials to clarify how ‘Bokuyo-ko’ were held. Detailed reading of the materials threw light on many aspects of the meetings. I have found that ‘Bokuyo-ko’ constitutes an important educational process for young priests. In addition, I have introduced the Bokuyo-ko-hyobyaku (撲揚講表白) used in ‘Bokuyo-ko’.
