8月 「空に揺れるダリア」

Letter August "Dahlia swaying in the sky"





― 今月の大阿闍梨のひと言 ―




塩沼亮潤 「人生の歩き方」より

The season of the Sendai Tanabata Festival has arrived. Traditional Tanabata decorations, handmade with Japanese paper and green bamboo, gracefully and gorgeously decorate the ancient Japanese Star Festival. Among the Tanabata decorations, the eye-catching Kusudama is said to have been inspired by the dahlia flowers blooming in the gardens of Sendai merchants. If you look up at the sky, you can see the dahlia of Kusudama. Please enjoy a beautiful moment when the city is covered with blooming flowers.

[Monthly Word]

A single flower blooming in the field, like me, suffered from the rain and wind in the mountains, but even in the harshest of circumstances, it bloomed beautifully to soothe people's hearts. On the other hand, I once again reflected on what kind of existence I was to the people around me. I realized that I was just trying not to give in to the trials that came to me one after another, and that I didn't have the leeway to feel the true beauty of Mother Nature.
