For a picture of Oshio Mountain, on a screen in the Saisho Hall of the Four Heavenly Kings.


oshio yama
kami no shirushi o
matsu no ha ni
chigirishi iro wa
kaeru mono ka wa
Oshio Mountain,
The God’s blessing
Awaits; yet the pine needles’–
On which He made his vow–hue
Is not like to ever change…

Former Abbot Jien
