Kaori 2017/2/28 09:31
Recently I participated in a Buddhist ritual at a temple in Kanazawa. The monk beckoned me and my tourist friends into a dark room. He asked us to help him turn a revolving shrine containing old artefacts while he chanted Sutras, then tapped our shoulders with very old Sutra scrolls to bless us. As we left, he kept telling me 'kaori, kaori' and pointing to his tongue. It was important to him that I understood this, but I couldn't get the meaning. The only 'kaori' I know in Japanese means weaving or fragrance. Maybe it was a different word that sounds similar to 'kaori'. If anyone has an idea of what he was trying to tell me, please let me know below!

Perhaps, I think it is the word "Katsu"().
According to the dictionary,
To make a loud voice in Zen sect as a means for leaders to scold and lead the practitioners. Also, the word to say at that time.
