猿(えん)と縁(えん)をかけています。

大日如来さまは宇宙を司る方です。 すべての縁は宇宙から引き寄せられた必然。
松は神が宿るといわれ、そんな松が流星のように上へと昇って行く様を描きました。
あなたは『神』の字の中に「申」がいることに気付いていましたか?


"Good Monkey(Fate) Best Luck~Joyful~"

* 猿 (monkey) and 縁 (fate) are combined. ** Dainichi Nyorai, who is even worshipped by monkeys, says "be blessed with many good monkeys!" as he makes a large circle with both arms. Dainichi Nyorai controls the universe. All fate is inevitably drawn in from the universe. Pine tree are said to be dwellings for gods, and these pines are drawn to appear to reach up like meteors. Have you ever noticed that in the character for god (神) there is the character for monkey (申)?

* In the Japanese on-reading, "猿" (monkey) is pronounced EN. "縁" (fate) is also pronounced as EN.
** In the zodiac, monkey is written using the "申" character.


★The zodiac was introduced to Japan from ancient China. The zodiac counts "years" to represent Jupiter's location (position in the sky) during its orbit of one rotation around the sun every 12 years. 12 different animals symbolize each year sequentially, and it is repeated in a 12 year cycle. In Japan, the zodiac is called Eto, and at the beginning of the year we consider the good meanings associated with each animal for the year. 2019 is the year of the boar. Incidentally, the artist Nishi Yuu was born in the year of the money .
