Tackle It Tuesday preview upcoming theme 'Holy Isle'
Dear Haijin and visitors,
As promised in the first comment of my last Tackle It Tuesday episode (posted July 23th 2012) I will tell you something about "Holy Isle", the theme for next week's Tackle It Tuesday. Therefore I have made this preview-logo. Several years ago I heard for the very first time something about "Holy Isle" by a colleague of mine. She told me about "Holy Isle" as a wonderful and spiritual strong place. What is "Holy Isle" ?
Holy Isle is located off the west coast of Scotland, Holy Isle has an ancient spiritual heritage stretching back to the 6th century.It's now the place where you can come for a retreat based on the Kagyu Tradition of Lama Yeshe Rinpoche, a Tibetan meditation master. On Holy Isle you can find your peace and relief of your busy days.
Holy Isle is a wonderful place and I surely recommend you to visit their website. It gives you more information about Holy Isle and Buddhism in the Kagyu Tradition.
Why "Holy Isle" as the theme for next week's Tackle It Tuesday? Well ... haiku has a Buddhism base ... e.g. Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) was a Buddhist Monk and Haiku Master. So this theme for Tackle It Tuesday has a reason to be.
Well ... my dear Haijin ... this theme will come up next week. Be inspired and enjoy the fun of writing your haiku.
