3月 「いつの時代も変わらぬもの」

Letter March "things that never change"






― 今月の大阿闍梨のひと言 ―








塩沼亮潤 「人生生涯小僧のこころ」より

March 3rd is Hinamatsuri.

In Japan, there was a custom of "nagashi-bina," which wards off bad luck by transferring it to dolls.

It is said that it was in the Edo period that Hina dolls were displayed as it is today, and it developed into an event to pray for the healthy growth and happiness of girls.

During this season, the Akiu Sato Center is decorated with lovely hina dolls made by children, including gorgeous hanging hina dolls.

In the customs that have been passed down, the affection of parents who think of their children is alive and well.

[ Monthly Word ]

I had no strength left to get up.

The body does not move at all.

Lying on the ground asleep felt so good that I wanted time to stop forever.

However, I thought that if I stayed like this forever, I would not be able to continue my training, and at that time I would have to cut my stomach with a dagger.

Just as I was about to prepare myself, words suddenly came to my mind.

The words my mother told me while I was leaving for training suddenly came to mind.

“No matter how hard or painful it is, even if you cling to a rock or feel like you are chewing on sand, come back with a splendid appearance.”
