大徳寺塔頭の中でも一般公開のないところはご縁がなかったのですが、先日偶然日本で「欠伸会」(かんしんかい)の方とお知り合いになりました。「欠伸会」は龍光院の江月宗玩(1574~1643、江戸初期の臨済宗の僧)による語録『欠伸稿』を勉強する会とのこと。

Of many “sub-temples” (tacchu’u) at Da’itoku-ji, there hasn’t been an opportunity to get to know those that are not generally open to the public.  Out of a fluke, we became acquainted with someone who was a member of “Kanshin-ka’i“.  It is a group hosted by Ryo’uko’u-in, a sub-temple at Da’itoku-ji, to study “Kanshin-roku” – a collection of text by So’ugan Ko’ugetsu (1574~1643, a Buddhist priest of the Rinzai sect in the early Edo period who was the abbot of Ryo’uko’u-in).

サンフランシスコで茶の湯に関するレクチャーが行われた際、龍光院現住職小堀月浦和尚、熊倉功夫博士、芳澤勝弘博士とご一緒に「欠伸会」の方々お見えになり異国の地にての再会となりました。

To attend an academic conference on Japanese tea, a group from Kanshin-ka’i came all the way from Japan to San Francisco – together with Ryo’uko’u-in’s current abbot, Rev. Geppo Kobori, Dr. Isa’o Kumakura and Dr. Katsuhiro Yoshizawa.  It provided a wonderful opportunity to see our new friend again.

折角頂きましたご縁です。大切にしたいと思います。

Should old acquaintances be forgot?  For auld lang syne, we’ll take a cup of tea and cherish them.
