Wishing all of you joy, health and peace in the coming year!
The days are now slowly lengthening. At the beginning of the year, we summon up a dauntless spirit to dissolve obstacles and successfully execute the work of the coming months. Rather than draw energy in, we now extend it outward seamlessly in all directions with determination.
To set the tone, an image of Marishiten.
