3月 「足るを知る」

Letter March "realize that there is enough"







― 今月の大阿闍梨のひと言 







塩沼亮潤 「寄りそう心」より

In the lunar calendar, the day of the new moon is counted as the first day of the month, and that day is called ``Sakujitsu.''

The word ``reverse'' next to the ``moon'' in the character ``saku'' is said to be a hieroglyph with the word ``person'' turned upside down, and has the meaning of ``returning to the original.''

The waning moon returns to its original state, waxing and waning.

Let's spend this new month with peace of mind and be grateful for the happiness we have now.

When you have three meals in front of you and feel at ease every day, you find yourself complaining and complaining about the smallest things.

It may seem strange to compare mountain training with modern society, but it is said that humans can basically survive for months on rice and water.

On the other hand, if you have too much luxury, you will end up competing with each other and becoming dissatisfied even if you are short on something.

Now is the time to reconsider the idea of ​​sufficiency and the spirit of sharing.
