Zen proverb 37 : Ichiensou

Hello! I am Katsuya Yasuda from Yasuda Consulting.

I’ll introduce a new Zen proverb. It is “Ichiensou.”

“Ichi” means one.

“En” means a circle.

“Sou” means a figure.

What do you think about a circle?

It doesn’t have a start and an end.

It doesn’t have any lack and any surplus.

You can find harmonious, smoothly and peaceful in a circle.

Please draw a circle. What figure is it today?

Is it cool? it may look like your mind.
