Am I the only one who doesn't get it? Are these "dokas" some sort of poems or another kind of haiku? Some of them makes sense, both others (like the one above) I just can't understand. Please help me!
PS. Don't tell me it's 'cause I'm Swedish! =)
KAMI : No, it isn't, Patrik! Even japanese have the same problem. Kaiso was very mystic and his doka involve knowledge of ancient Shinto texts, tempered by his Omoto-Kyo involvement and his personal interpretation.
Some of them are really impossible to understand.
