京都を歩く(144) 新成人が魅せる新春の風物詩 三十三間堂「通し矢」 (京都駅周辺

There is a classic Buddhist parable of the two arrows. In brief, the idea is that most people, when hurt, add to the hurt. If shot with an arrow, we spend a lot of effort focused on wondering why we got shot, how we didn't deserve that, how the person who shot the arrow is a  jerk, what we are going to say when we get in front of him/her, etc.  It's like being struck by a second arrow -- the first one is physical and the second is mental.

Japanese used tall bows, called yumi, for centuries. The two-meter bows were taller than the archer and asymmetric, the grip about two third.
