Here is my first post for the blog a wonderful poem written by Jien.
Izukata mo Though I search
Nokosazu yukite Every field
Tazunu to mo Overlooking nothing,
Hana wa minori no All the flowers are but
Hana bakari koso The flowers of the law.
Jien,1155-1225, poet, monk, chief abbot of Mt. Hiei on the Lotus Sutra as the unsurpassed vehicle that leads to enlightenment.
