Kesa, Okesa, Kasaya

– Seven Row Miniature Kesa (sho shichijo-e) in Nyoho-e Tradition –

“The buddhas praise the kasāya as a fertile field,

They call it supreme in giving benefit and joy to living beings.

The mystical power of the kasāya is unthinkable,

It can cause us to practice deeds that plant the seeds of bodhi,

It makes the sprouts of the truth grow like spring seedlings,

The wonderful effect of bodhi being like autumn fruit.”
