Busy these days but trying to respond to the prompts at Carpe Diem now and then, here is a quick one.
This month Kristjaan's prompts take us on the Shikoku pilgrimage. Today's stop is a temple dedicated to the Medicine Buddha, whose twelve vows included this one that I think is beautiful: "to help beings follow the Moral Precepts, even if they failed before."
And now a haiku on this theme.
I know you will fall,
and you will fall again, and
you will rise once more.
Not a good classical haiku but I'm feeling more philosophical today. Happy Wednesday!
