Who knew the path to enlightenment could start with a cup of tea? Learn the hidden significance behind the deceptively simple Zen tea ceremony - one which can lead directly to Buddhahood and its absolute truth. D.T. Suzuki, once Japan's leading authority on Zen Buddhism, describes the tearoom and the tea ceremony and explains the guiding principles of harmony, reverence, purity, and tranquility. Explore with him the essential concepts of wabi and sabi, which lead to the subjective and objective appreciation of poverty and imperfection which are so vital to establishing a Zen mindset. Zen and the Art of Tea is part of a series of programs taken from Suzuki's Zen and Japanese Culture. Download and start listening now!

    " A really good overview of Zen and the way it's influenced japanese aesthetics and culture. A lot of what I saw over there earlier this year make more sense now. "
