Japanese Poem/俳句

Japanese poet has a specific gift that detects something great in small things… This is the East.

Zen way takes life as it is lived instead of chopping it to pieces and trying to restore its life by intellection.

(DT Suzuki “Zen and Psychoanalysis”)

日本の俳人は、小さきものの中にある何かを見つけることができる。とても東洋的だ。

生きているものをそのまま受け取るのが禅的な方法で、小さく細断し、分析して、知識で元に戻そうなどとはしないのだ。

                                鈴木大拙 「禅と精神分析」
