More > en in de bloemlezingen van Komrij en Pfeijffer, een plaats in de Nederlandse letteren verworven; de laatste 20 jaar geconsolideerd met een dozijn literaire titels van zijn hand, o.m. dichtbundels, een essay over W.F. Hermans, en een verhalenbundel BIËNNALE 2023. De EIKAN-DO TEMPEL heeft vooral affiniteit met zijn eerdere VANUIT EEN NIEUW LICHAAM VAN VERLICHTING (2010), dat een poëtische verwerking inhield van Thais Boeddhisme. In DE EIKAN-DO TEMPEL worden aspecten van de tempel verwoord op een wijze die de denktrant van het Zen-Boeddhisme probeert te benaderen. Aldus wordt de schoonheid van Japanse spiritualiteit opgeroepen.

Kantei Reference Book - Hamon & Boshi By Markus Sesko

Towards the end of 2012, I published the two-volume project Koto-kantei and Shinto & Shinshinto-kantei, depicting 358 blades from all schools and styles. Recently, I was able to continue with the... More > first Kantei Supplement 1 introducing another 61 blades. In between I received feedback which suggested that a kind of „reverse version“ would be practical. This means a guidebook where specific examples of hamon and bōshi are depicted instead of more or less detailed schematic representations. The result is this small publication which shows about 400 hamon and 230 boshi interpretations. I hope this humble guide will be helpful for identifying specific works, or at least guide you on the right track enabling you to look for further information and confirmation. It also might come in useful for oshigata-based kantei riddles where only the hamon and the boshi are provided.< Less
