    Hi Mark , they are not prayers as such but mantra`s . These talismen would be tailored to protect specific parts of the body from harm , ie . head , stomach , arms , legs etc. and is why you could come across five , six or more of these in a pouch , bag or senninbari ( thousand stitch belt ). The pouch i show only contained two when i obtained it .

    Alan,

    Here we go numbering the photos in the order you posted them.

    1, 2 & 3: Prayer (for) eternal good fortune in war

    5 & 6: (right column) Sumadera (Suma Temple)
    (middle column) (Talisman) protection against bodily harm
    (left column) Rensei-in (Rensei Temple)
    Note: Both temples are on the grounds of the Sumadera in Kobe City and belong to the Shingonshu Buddhist sect.

    7: (Talisman) protection against bodily harm

    8: Minagawa Jinja (Minagawa Shrine, also located in Kobe city) (Talisman) protection against bodily harm

    I just had a knee replacement; maybe I should have gotten one of those pouches :-)

    Tom
