"Why, its a priest .come to play tricks on us in the New Year. "

"Or has Ikkyu really lost his mind?"

どくろをかついで13 一休さん 福娘童話集

♪ New Year is a milepost in our lifelong journey to the other world.

♪ A time to celebrate a time to mourn

 Upon hearing Ikkyus strange song, Kyuei tilled his head from left to right in bewilderment.

"I wonder, A time to celebrate a time to mourn. What does it mean"?
 What does it all mean Ikkyu? "

"Well.

 Every time a new year is welcomed in, another year of life is taken away from our us.

 So that means that every time New Year approaches, we get closer to our destiny with the other world.

 That means we will be getting closer to death.

 Therefore, when New Year comes it is also a time for mourning.

 So, that’s why it is a time for celebration and a time for mourning ".

"Ah, now I see. "

 The same goes for you "

"Yes…That is true ".

"Kyuei, while you are alive, please make the most of your life.
 Then you will be able to reach paradise"

"Yes"!

"You are a very rich man.

 Even if it is only a little bit, please give your left over money to people who are having difficulties.
