Phil 106 The tea ceremony one of the rituals in Japan brought to them by the Zen Buddhism The tea ceremony is the art of making tea Tea is prepared in simple rooms with simple instruments but is hard to master the technique of making tea The Zen Buddhists dedicate time to make the tea it is not just boil the water and drop the tea It is more like a ritual in making fine tea by having the patience to do it perfectly It takes practice and patience Every movement is highly calculated and has to be done just right The tea has become like a ceremony since the host has to know how to put the water in the pot put the fire in the correct place prepare the tea leaves decorate appropriately the room and be as tranquil to everyone in the room It is a time for everyone to meditate It was a time to detach oneself from the worldly concerns of every day life and to live in this moment with a heart free of selfish desires It seeks beauty in the imperfect and in the simple objects of everyday life And it is preferred that the host of the tea ceremony made the ceremony in small rooms using plain utensils rather than using lavish rooms using expensive imported utensils It was also a way for the monks to reach satori and to detach from the luxury and begin to live simple There are rules to make the tea they just dont put the fire any way they want but it has to be arranged because tea has to be made with complete competence and sincerity They can put flowers arranged with care and brought from the fields Also they have to plan the occasion with anticipation Also they have to create an atmosphere accordingly to the season with proper care and vision And plan for everything to be ready
