Scribe Figaro Explains It All

I've been trying to figure out which sect of Buddhism Miroku belongs to for nearly as long as I've been reading the series so that would be something like four years. My best guess was some variety of Jodo (Pure Land) but we don't get a lot of details in canon and repeated attempts to find clues based on the design of his clothing via Google were just confusing.

I should have known that scribefigaro, author of THE guide to what the clothes in IY are would have figured out the answer.

If you go to the main page of her recently updated Hagakure Productions site you will find the clothing guide, the article on Miroku's faith, and the two articles that he recently posted to her Live Journal that I've previously recommended as well as several other really informative and helpful articles. You'll also find links to his excellent fan videos and fanfiction.
