Zen proverb 39 : Arubekiyou


Hello! I am Katsuya Yasuda from Yasuda Consulting. Golden Week was over in Japan. It is the first weekday in Reiwa Era today.

I’ll introduce a new Zen proverb. It is “ARUBEKIYOU.”

It is rare Zen proverb which is represented by only Hiragana letters.

This proverb means that you should be as you are.

What are originally you?

Maybe you make an effort to change yourself.

Why?

Is it a race?

Is it a self-enlightenment?

Don’t push yourself too hard.
