[Peel 427]

-The sadhu, the weeds and I (2)-

One morning. I weeded his precious weeds by mistake. They were definitely the weeds in any other countries for sure. But they weren’t weeds in his garden. I knew that he was upset but I couldn’t understand the words he was saying.

He was re-planting those completely knackered tiny weeds I had just pulled out. I realized that every bit of greenery was precious in the dried garden. In a sense, the act of weeding could be the human ego.

The weeds always remind me of the sadhu in the temple of Virindavan.

We never spoke. I didn’t know his name. But he was one of a few people has kept remaining in my heart.

And I was very sorry.

There are no weeds in this world. Who has decided the weeds or non-weeds at the first place?


- サドゥ、雑草とわたし(2) -

ある朝、わたしは大失敗をやらかし、サドゥの大切な雑草を抜いてしまった。他国なら、あれはどう見ても絶対に雑草だった。でも、サドゥの庭では雑草ではなかった。わたしにもサデゥが怒っていることくらいは分かったけれど、チンプンカンプンで何を言っているのか、さっぱり分からなかった。

サドゥは、わたしがさっき抜いて、すっかりしぼんでしまった雑草を元通りにテキパキと植え戻し始めた。その乾ききった庭では例えどんな貧弱な緑であろうと、貴重な存在だったのだろう。良く考えてみれば、雑草を抜くという行為自体が人間のエゴなのかもしれない。

今でも、その雑草を目にする度に、わたしはいつもビリンダバンのお寺のサドゥのことを思い出す。わたしたちは一度も話ししたことも無かったし、わたしはサデゥの名前すら知らなかった。でも、サドゥは、わたしの生涯で忘れることの出来ない数少ない人々のひとりである。

サドゥ、本当にごめんなさい。

この世界に雑草なんてないのだ。元々「雑草」とか「雑草じゃない」とか、いったい誰が線引きしたのか?

A good day starts with gratitude and humbleness, this thing only you can experience while you are in Rishikesh, India.

When you first wake up in the morning if you give thanks for the good things which are in your life, you will start the day off on a positive note and that will flow through the day. Make this routine a habit and you will find this positive attitude becoming a part of who you are.
