Chokudai 2013

Every year in Japan the emperor sets a theme for the New Year – this is called CHOKUDAI. This is also the theme for the Imperial poetry contest. The theme for the New Year 2013 is:

TATSU 立 – to stand.

The Roshi wrote the above calligraphy in response to this theme. He used the words by Rinzai Gigen Zenji:

Wherever I stand, that is the true place.

Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
