My Mother, the World was the original copy of a famous speech delivered by Doji Nio, stored within the Imperial Histories at Kyuden Seppun. It was said to be the most beautiful example of calligraphy and handwriting in history. The oration focused on a discussion of the phrase Setsugekka, or 'the three elements of nature', snow, flowers, and oceans, [1] to describe the spirit of the ever-changing world in the eyes of the Lady Doji. The treatise was stored in the Imperial Libraries, [2] at the Seppun Library. [3]
