Fusessei (不摂生 – Intemperance)

  • Fusessei


    These days I have lived a lifestyle called ‘fusessei‘ (不摂生).

    Fu‘ (不) is a negative word, and ‘sessei‘ (摂生) means to be careful of your health so as not to fall sick.

    Therefore, fusessei means that you are not careful of your health or you do something harmful to your health.

    If you fall sick as a result of fusessei, it can be expressed as ‘fusessei ga tataru‘ (不摂生がたたる) by using the verb ‘tataru‘ (たたる).

    Originally, tataru means that the gods, Buddha, or ghosts bring harm, but it can also mean that something occurs a bad result.
