KAKIZOME THE FIRST CALLIGRAPHY OF THE YEAR

KAKIZOME THE FIRST CALLIGRAPHY OF THE YEAR

書き初めKAKIZOME :The first calligraphy of the year

We normally write our wishes, target, or motto of the year. This year l have written 日々是好日(nichi nichi kore kounichi) which is one of the Zen phrase that l like. This phrase has many meanings

  • Every day can be good day depend on your attitude or your thought.
  • It is important to live the present.
  • We have to do the best to make the better day.
  • Just accept the day as it is.

I will try to remember this phrase, when l feel down, this year!!

The kakizome can be burned in the dondoyaki day read more about this tradition on my post
