Matsuoka family had baby born on September last year.
Given 4th children, I may be able to name him as "Sirou", however, as second son, I have named him as "Jiro."
There is 16 years difference between first daughter and him.
For me, as if first grandson at my age of 39 years old, he is cute without any reason.
I would like to say to him "Welcome ! Let's enjoy life with me !"
However, from the point of appropriate buddhist words would be "I am sorry. Let's train with me."
Last year, I had an opportunity to have a same table for about 30 minutes with a buddhist in either Ringai school or Soto school.
Replying to my question "Are we able to meet again after re-born ?".
"It would be possible, however, for the sake of the dead person, we would be better not to expect so."
And he explained about the metempsychosis.
When people die, there would be 2 ways, one is entering into Nirvana, the other is entering into metempsychosis.
Entering into Nirvana belongs to "consciousness" area and entering into metempsychosis belongs to "soul" area.
Despite everybody's wish entering into Nirvana, metempsychosis would be re-born with tears sentenced as "you have not been adequately grown up, thus, need training again."
There are 6 regions in the metempsychosis.
Expressed in order of pains
The world of the hell, literally
The world of hungry suffering from hungry
The world of animals
The world of Asura where fights are always prevailing
The world of human-being we belong to
The world of heaven
Until entering into Nirvana, trainings are supposed to continue at any one of the world.
Given training for entering into Nirvana, it would be natural to live with feeling pains.
So, to appropriate words for babies would be "I am sorry for your metempsychosis. Let's train with me." from the point of buddhists.
He put punchlines as "That is why babies are born crying."
We are born not to do something but to train ourselves.
So, it would be quite natural we always encounter challenges whatever we do.
He is buddhist, I was relieved with his explanations somehow.
6 kinds of worlds in the metempsychosis would exist anywhere in the world of human-beings and it appears to me that I always have 6 kinds of minds.
We may fall in to any world of minds depending on our own responsibility, however, it would be relieved once we think it sa "it would be just one of trainings."
I have frequently frustrated with concerning various stuffs last year, I have gradually become able to think them as "That is what it is" at last.
In 2000, the first daughter was born when I started training as craftsman of furnitures.
In 2003, the first son was born when I established KOMA.
In 2009, the second daughter was born when I had prepared KOMA own products
I have enjoyed each training, thus, I would like to say to my second son "Welcome ! Let's enjoy tighter !"
And, new training with Jiro would be start for the full-scale overseas development of KOMA.
