And this is a nice wish for the year 2000. By Busen Sensei.
This is a very simple form of an IPPITSU Daruma, I think.
He even has the word KATSU! On his belly.

ENSOO, the circle of things,
is also expressed through the large earrings of Daruma san.
Here is my own story on that subject of MIMIKAZARI.

Enso: Zen Circles of Enlightenment

Seo, Audrey Yoshiko / Loori, John Daido


.......................................................................


"Life, the circle,
a measurement with no beginning and no end."

-- Phillip Deere, MUSKOGEE-CREEK

The circle teaches us how the Creator made things and how to live.
It teaches us how we should look at creation.
Life travels in a circle.
In the East is the baby,
to the South is the youth,
in the West is the adult and
in the North is the Elder.
Then we return to the Earth Mother to start the cycle again.
We observe what is `around us' from the center of the circle.
This develops our point of view.
We must be careful not to become self-centered.

--- quote from
Meditations with Native American Elders: The Four Seasons
