- As for the blog's name: -

I was @ Gustav Ericsson's sight, - Anzenkai, and I was looking at Nishijima Roshi’s calligraphies over there. Particularly there is one - "seki shin hen pen" - about which Gustav has earlier said in a blog post that it is Nishijima's favorite phrase from Master Dogen.

This seemed strange to me. It was not what I would expect Nishijima Roshi's favorite phrase to be. It seemed it could be some Rinzai master's favorite quote, - it seems to express continuous and constant sincerity, - but it did not seem to fit my view of the way Nishijima Roshi saw things.

So - consequently - I tried to think what would I expect his favorite quote to be. But all phrases I could think of did not seem to fit just what I might have had in mind.

So I tried to come up with what I would see it as, - and what I have come up with - is - "this universe out here".

- And this seems to be the right name for this blog here too.

- Definitely.                                                 ________________________

30.8.14 - Kalo Died

Shlomo Kalo, whom I mentioned in earlier posts, died on Saturday.

This is just s few links, for whoever is interested. (I only found one in English, of what I thought worthy of listing; - and this too is only on updating this post (Sep 4th))

My “Time” post is still to be put on some day. - It is not an easy one and I am currently not working on it at all. The circumstances are not enabling and I apparently must just wait.
