Hi everyone,

I received a hand-written scroll which reads 時切場切 - translate literally as “time cut place cut”.

Can someone here explain the meaning of this phrase?

Thank you.

"Jigiri Bagiri" is another way of pronouncing that phrase.

I hear it means "Live every moment to the fullest".

"Jigiri Bagiri" is the only way I've come across of reading that phrase, but if it was pronounced in the Chinese style it'd be "Jisetsu Josetsu", not "toki".

Thanks, Josh & Nat, for the corrections.

Toki setsu jo setsu was what I got from the J-E dictionary. I believe the phrase "Living every moment to the fullest" applies to being on the mat too.

FYI, the scroll was a gift from Inoue Kyoichi hanshi. After drinks, I lost the translation.

Hi again, Nat & Josh,

Can it be read as bagiri-jigiri, that is, acting according to the circumstances, at that moment, in that place?
