Hello. I am Katsuya Yasuda from Pearl Co., Ltd.

I’ll introduce a new Zen proverb. It is “Tagaienika Meigetsuseifu Nakaran.”

It means that the wind blows and the moon illuminates on everybody’s house.

So we can think everyone has a Buddha’s heart. Even if they are not a monk or pious person.

We always understand people by first impressions. But we should realize they and I have Buddha’s heart.

Hello. I am Katsuya Yasuda from Pearl Co., Ltd.

I’ll introduce a new Zen proverb. It is “Deibutsu Mizu wo Watarazu.”

“Deibutsu” means the statue of Buddha. It is made of cray.

If it gets wet, it will break. It is cray. It is not Budda.

Don’t worry about what has shape.

Something which has a form will eventually break.

It’s worth your naked self.

What is in my heart is worth it.

Hello! I am Katsuya Yasuda from Pearl Co., Ltd. I’m sorry for stopping to update the blog article for 4 months.

I introduce a new Zen proverb today. It is “Kochu Nichigetsu Nagashi.”

One day, a man spent much time with a hermit in the bottle. It is very fun and substantial. After this day, a man came out of the bottle, Many days have already passed.

Time passes quickly if we feel fun and substantial. But the flow of time is constant.

It depends on how you feel.

Hello! I am Katsuya Yasuda from Yasuda Consulting. I’ll introduce a new Zen proverb. It is “Shojusennennomidori.”

“Shoju” means a pine tree.

“Sennnen” means a thousand year.

“Midori” means green color.

Pine trees keep their leaves green all year.

So we don’t notice it.

Cherry blossoms bloom all at once in April.

So we say “It’s beautiful! Let’s have a flower viewing party!”

Pine trees are not worth?

Pine trees push out fresh shoots and drop old brown leaves. So they keep green but we don’t realize.

Pine trees live strong. We should know it.

Hello! I am Katsuya Yasuda from Yasuda Consulting.

I’ll introduce a new Zen proverb. It is so longer than usual I introduced ever.

It is “Zenwomo omowazu. Akuwomo omowazu.”

Zen means good.  Aku means evil or wrong.

This proverb means “Don’t judge.”

How many times do you judge today?

You may be worried about in every judgment.

Why do you need these judgments?

Upper or lower?

Top or bottom?

Good or wrong?

There is not any distinction in space.

Why?

Hello! I’m Katsuya Yasuda from Yasuda Consulting. I’ll introduce a new Zen proverb. It is “Ku.”

“Ku” usually means empty. But there is some difference in Zen.

For example:
There is one something here and you are watching it. You can realize “There is one something here.”
But How about in the case you don’t watch it?
Offcourse The something exists here.
In Zen, if you don’t watch it, there isn’t anything here. “Ku” means this way of thinking.
If you don’t see, there isn’t anything.
If you don’t touch, there isn’t anything.
If you don’t smell, there isn’t anything.
If you don’t taste, there isn’t anything.

Hi! I am Katsuya Yasuda from Yasuda Consulting. I’ll introduce a new Zen proverb. It is “Myouritomonikyusu.”

“Myou” means an honor.
“Ri” means money.

We have many kinds of greed.
They dirty our mind.

We should get rid of these greeds.

 

By the way, I am glad by hearing this news “UNESCO to add Osaka tombs to world heritage list.” Many tourists will visit there and know Japanese ancient history.
