Hello 2017

Hello, 2017!

Ikkyū (1394–1481), a Japanese Zen monk & mystic, left his unique philosophy to us as the form of poetry called KYOUKA. This is one of his lines that tells us the meaning of the New Year: 

The New Year’s Day comes once a year
Which is the milestone of your journey.
(Your life is a journey to Heaven.)
When you have come to the new milestone, 
Celebrate it & think seriously about the rest of your life!

May 2017 be the best year of your life!
