9月 「竹の春」

Letter September "Bamboo Spring"





― 今月の大阿闍梨のひと言 ―




塩沼亮潤 「忘れて捨てて許す生き方」より

"Bamboo Spring'' is the seasonal word for this season.

It seems strange to hear the word "spring" in autumn, but the word "bamboo spring" was born because the young bamboo shoots that grew as bamboo shoots grow rapidly, and the parent bamboo regains its green color.

In "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter'', which is said to be "Japan's oldest surviving story,'' it was during the harvest moon that Princess Kaguya was born from a bamboo and returned to the Moon Capital.

This year it's September 29th. The young bamboo leaves shining in the darkness under the moonlight are truly beautiful, just like Princess Kaguya.

[ Monthly Word ]

Once born, everyone is destined to go to the next world.

However, being surrounded by this great nature and surrounded by this universe, each of us can live however we want. In such a life, we need to walk the right path and enjoy the joy of living, and our children can feel in their hearts that we are walking down the right path, and in turn, we can watch our children walk down the right path through bonds of trust. I will watch over you.

I believe this is the legacy we can leave to the next generation.
