Learning from Zen of Tea
When you are invited to a tea ceremony in Japan and enter a tea room, you will first see the tokonoma (alcove). In the tokonoma hangs a special hanging scroll that the tea ceremony host has chosen for you, the day's guest. What is written on it? Sometimes it is a picture or an old letter, but more often, it is a Zen word.
The meaning of "kissako," which often hangs in the tea room, is "Let's have a cup of tea" for old and new friends, the great and the not-so-great.
Reading this book and having a cup of tea, savor the Zen words that still encourage people today. May they help you to overcome the stormy seas of life.
