Description - The Japanese Tea Ceremony: Cha-no-Yu and the Zen Art of Mindfulness by A. L. Sadler

The Japanese Tea Ceremony is a detailed examination of the five-centuries-old tea ceremony or Cha-no-Yu (in Japanese, literally hot water for tea) a cornerstone of Japanese culture and a core practice of Zen Buddhism.

Framed by intricately choreographed steps, the tea ceremony is as much about the search for enlightenment as it is about serving tea. Within the serenity of the tea room, the ceremony, with its highly formal structure, becomes an object of focus for meditation. As the water is heated and the tea is served, the ultimate goal is losing the sense of self while gaining inner peace. The path to mindfulness runs through the centre of the tea ceremony.

Abundantly illustrated with over 160 drawings and 40 colour photos showing every aspect of the ceremony, this book takes readers on a complete tour of furniture and utensils, teahouses and gardens, and numerous other features of Cha-no-Yu.

Buy The Japanese Tea Ceremony: Cha-no-Yu and the Zen Art of Mindfulness by A. L. Sadler from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
