Chih-I:
The Tai-ching states "the women in the realms of Mara, Sakra and Brahma all neither abandoned ( their old) bodies nor received (new) bodies. They all received buddhahood with their current bodies (genshin)" Thus these verses state that the dharma nature is like a great ocean. No right or wrong is preached (within it) Ordinary people and sages are equal, without superiority or inferiority

If you know any, could you say the name? I am new to Shingon Buddhism and I don't know many priests.

For starters, try here & here Pay close attention to the rules in each group to avoid rookie mistakes where possible and best of luck. Since you're in Brazil, check out this place It's hoped that the suggested groups and some personal due diligence in combing through the Shingon thread discussions here would be an interim guide for your search. Lastly, keep your feet grounded and have lots of fun :twothumbsup:
