The gift of a name–
a reflection or road map?
Regardless, live it.
山花, San’ka, Mountain Flower.
The Buddha twirled a flower. 🙂
Roots in the earth, strong and stably grounded, blooming up into the clouds, our teachers.
Brief and ephemeral, growing into fruit or sending out seeds on the wind.
山 can also be read as Temple. Temple Flower–who doesn’t blossom in the zendo?
