ＴＨＥ ＢＥＬＬＯＷ ２０１６
We achieved our 7th festival successfully. I am extremely thanksful to the gods of heaven, the god of Thailand, and the holy spirits of Mt.
Doi Luang for unvisible great gift of love. If 2000 people who
actually entered the fes had come to the first planned site, it
might've ended in great failure with great confusion.
How could I try to hold the fes in the site without any toilet? I was in desperation that time, but now I know I was simply reckless.
However, the gods of heaven were observing our passion.
"Oh, they are seriously trying to do something, OK,let them use the intended place."
Heaven only checks our seriousness. He checks the degree of
seriousness again and again.
I learned it too much by experience.
The number 7---now we has accomplished 7th fes--- means an end or completion.
Sunlight consists of 7 colors. A week has 7 days. The body has 7 chakras.
The vibration has been raised after 7th accomplishment. To say,foundation of our team of the fes has become (rough cutting but)rather firm.
Especially Thai staffs worked with remarkable assiduity.
Mr.Heart is a modest person---early morning I saw him managing tremendous amonts of yesterday's garbage as a matter of course.
Tua brilliantly settled the most annoying matter:
Actually money changes hands in this festival, but it is not allowed for foreign organizers.
So if the authorities check us, the foreign organizer (me,
Minami Masato) will be legally punished and refused entry to Thailand for five years!
I have been sounding Ms. Pik out, but it did not succeed. When I am tearing my hair out with Ura-san,
Tua said ``Leave it all to me. I will be the organizer of Thai side. No problem!"smiling before my very eyes.
Ura-san and me jumped for joy ``It's good to hear, it's all right now".
Step by step, Thai side will enlarge the staff for the next year's fes.
Ryoji and Hiromi family who used to say that they want to go to Shambhara take part in the fes for the first time.
In the brook streaming along the fes place, children have a joy and their mother has a bathe comfortably rolling up her trousers with barefoot as though she entrust the dreamscape with everyting---the scene recurs to my mind.
Migaku (a son of Ryoji) is liked by Hazuki (a daughter of
Yosuke): He's taken around with arm in arm embarrassedly or happily by turns---I laugh at him in spite of myself.
All children are future of the earth.
In Shambhara Festival which is safe and relaxed, I am convinced that we handed the splendor of the future to every child.
We keep on in the same place.
We are thinking how to use the place over the river.
Finally, I thank all the staff members from the bottom of my heart.
I really thank you.
I hope you will support us as possible.
And, please bring the future staff up robustly.
By the way, the winner of the HEPOPA prize is the team of Yujin and Tua for builudng the stage.
Hope to be on the same stage next year!
Alright then, later. HEPOPA!
