The Hi of Zehi calls on his students to devote themselves while only never…

Even if the seedling of destiny is planted, it will not grow large in a single day. From olden times it was said that peaches and chestnuts take three years, persimmons eight years and apricots easily require thirteen tears of fruit. During the period when the seedlings are being raised, we must endure various difficulties.  A long period of devotion and effort is required. Haratani-en took fifty years. (See our December 17,2020 post) Isn’t it true that to continue through those difficulties and to make an effort for a long period, ambition must always be coming forth from within us? Ambition is the original intention. It is what we have…
