●South Africa: It was the start of Spring today – the days are getting longer!
Life is the blossoming of flowers in the spring, the ripening of fruit in autumn, the rhythm of the earth and of nature. Life is the cry of cicadas signaling the end of summer, migratory birds winging south in a transparent autumn sky, fish frolicking in a stream. Life is the joy beautiful music instills in us, the thrilling sight of a mountain peak reddened by the rising sun, the myriad combinations and permutations of visible and invisible phenomena. Life is all things.
● Quote by Buddhist Philosopher Daisaku Ikeda
