Court of the Universe
In the Promenade by Night
|The inscriptions on the Arch of the Rising Sun, facing the Court, are as follows:
The panel at the left of the attic, representing China, is inscribed
They who know the truth are not equal to those who love it. - Confucius.
The panel in the center of the attic, representing India, reads
The moon sinks yonder in the west,
While, in the east, the glorious sun
Behind the herald dawn appears
Thus rise and set in constant change those shining orbs
And regulate the very life of this our world.
The panel at the right of the attic, representing Japan, reads
Our eyes and hearts uplifted, seem to gaze on heaven's radiance. - Hitomaro.
