Cast & Credits
Attending a Japanese tea ceremony on a singular occasion as a guest is perhaps one of the most wonderful things I've ever experienced. I hope to experience it once more, and I hope you'll get to experience it as well. In the initial scenes, we witness Mrs. Takeda, the tea sensei, admonishing Noriko (and Michiko) for analysing every step in the Way of Tea. This is because analysis runs contrary to the precepts of Zen Buddhism which holds primacy over the path of action in conjunction with meditation in performing a task or learning a skill because only in this way can harmony with nature and innate tranquilitea be achieved.
''In the practice of tea, a sanctuary is created where one can take solace in the tranquility of spirit.''
I highly recommend a book called Chado (The Japanese Way of Tea) most esp. if you're an enthusiast of tea and/or if you're on the path towards serenity.
