Yamaoka Tesshu





Namaste world, and greetings 2013.  I sincerely hope that every reader enjoyed their Christmas and New Year celebrations.   Tonight I am delighted and honoured to have received permission from a bright, ten year old philosopher named Nicholas, to feature his illustrated rendition of a story from the Zen tradition.

I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do. Thank you Nicholas.
