Carpe Diem #1622 Kumano Kodo ... CD Imagination ... Kumano Kodo Waterfall

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

My apologies for being late with publishing our new episode. Today I have chosen the "easy way", because of lack of time, I am on the nightshift, so I have chosen to challenge you with only an image taken somewhere along the Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage route.

I have a wonderful image for your inspiration. The image below shows you the Daimonzaka, a 600 meter section of the Kumano Kode leading to Naichi Taisha, the waterfall.

Daimonzaka ... leading to the waterfall
the sound of water
pointing the way to the Pure Land
meeting Basho

You will understand why I created the above haiku. It links to Basho's famous haiku "old pond". But why ... meeting Basho? Well legend tells us that a lot of monks (not Basho by the way) jumped into the waterfall at Nachi (part of Kumano Kodo) to enter paradise ... the Pure Land.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until March 14th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new weekend meditation later on. For now ... be inspired.
