The scrolls for this week, hana or "flower" in the 4.5-mat room, and mei reki reki or "light shines everywhere" and ro do do or "dew in its purity covers everything" in the 10-mat room, speak very much to the simplicity and beauty of nature as compared to the more abstract concepts such as those found in Zen teachings. Together, the scrolls appear to emphasize something like a morning scenery, and they serve as a nice reminder that for as much as we may like to contemplate about our nature, it is also important to just go outside and enjoy nature.
