Kamakura Mindfulness Day July

“True happiness” – Meditating on the words of Kenji Miyazawa

In July, we will deepen our understanding of ``true happiness,'' which is often mentioned in Kenji Miyazawa's works, with a particular reference to ``Night on the Galaxy Express.''

You cannot learn literary works just by reading them mentally. A new discipline called ``Happiness Studies'' has become known, but given the difficult circumstances of today, it is time to deeply ask ourselves ``What is true happiness?'' and reevaluate our past values. think.

On the Galaxy Express, Kenji borrows the work and asks a question.

``But what is true happiness?'' said Giovanni.

``I don't understand,'' Campanella said absentmindedly.

In his meditation guidance, Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh teaches that ``Mindfulness is the source of happiness'' and ``Happiness is the present moment.''

Through meditation, I would like to experience the spirit of Kenji, who created his works based on the fiery words of the Lotus Sutra, even though he was suffering from his birth, illness, and the hardships of his time. Kenji was a man who lived a life of mindfulness and compassion. This is condensed into the word "true happiness."

When we live with questions rather than answers, we are already “in the midst”.

~Message from Mr. Shimada~

For now, put off your errands, get away from your busy life, and spend half a day in a quiet place.

Give yourself the gift of peace of mind and relaxation.

Switch from the mode of ``running errands'' to the mode of ``slowly savoring'' and experience the lively, fresh elements of ``living here and now'', your friends, and nature.

It may be an unusual sight, a delicious food, or a wonderful word that you saw for the first time when you were a child.

We just forget.

Happiness is always here and now.

Mindfulness is about remembering.

There are many such things in daily life. Let's practice finding it together.
