A Shaka-nyorai statue decorated with flower arrangement for the New Year in Tokei-ji

I saw the Shaka-nyorai statue decorated with auspicious plants in the serene stillness of the cold winter garden.

I had a deep feeling that, from this image of Buddha, I heard silent merciful prayers for the salvation and happiness of all living things.

Very best wishes for the New Year.

The same to you, Kunihiko. And thank you for the images that you left for us every week. In the same spirit of the Shaka-nyorai, it's truly inspiring.-
(The bamboo grove...spectacular!)
