The path to fulfill our life’s destiny – the way of life that enhances our ability to act

Our original intentions must not be forgotten.

When one walks up the northwest on the side of Kinkakuji in Ukyo ward of Kyoto there is a place called Okitayama Haratani. In haratani there is a small mountain that resembles a hill, which is called Haratani-en. In spring, this entire mountain is adorned with the blossoms of crimson weeping cherry trees. Beneath the cherry trees a variety of flowering plants are blooming such as Japanese roses and camellias, which are future enhancing the cherry blossoms.

When standing in Haratani-en, our body and mind are absorbed within the flowers, and the words “beautuful, beautiful” cannot help but come forth from us. Surrounded by flowers from heaven and earth we feel a profound sense of true happiness.
