Baddabara Bosatsu 跋陀婆羅菩薩

Altar for Baddabara Bodhisattva in Hokuozan Sogenji at the entrance to the bath house.

Altar with Baddabara statue in entrance of the bath house in Sogenji Japan.

When entering the bath house, pay your respects to Baddabara Bodhisattva, who became enlightened when taking a bath, reminding us that we have the chance for awakening any time, any place as well. That is why it is nowadays still stated in the rules: 

While taking a bath, the "exquisite touch" of warmth must be made to lead to the "realisation of the nature of water."
