THE PHILOSOPHY OF CHADO THE UNDERLYING PHILOSOPHY OF TEA EVOLVED FROM ZEN

BUDDHISM. ZEN IS THE JAPANESE COUNTERPART OF THE CHINESE WORD CHAN, WHICH IS A

TRANSLATION OF THE SANSKRIT WORD DHYANA, MEANING THE MEDITATION THAT LEADS

TO DEEP SPIRITUAL INSIGHT. BOTH TEA AND ZEN EMPHASIZE A WAY OF TRAINING BODY

AND MIND IN AWARENESS THAT HAS POTENTIAL TO BECOME A RIGOROUS SPIRITUAL

DISCIPLINE.

SEN RIKYU SUMMARIZED THE PRINCIPLES OF THE DISCIPLINE OF TEA INTO FOUR CONCEPTS:

HARMONY, RESPECT, PURITY, AND TRANQUILITY, OR THE PEACE OF MIND THAT COMES

WITH THE REALIZATION OF THE FIRST THREE PRINCIPLES. BY LEARNING CHADO, WE SEEK TO

OBTAIN AN ULTIMATE PEACE OF MIND, WA (HARMONY), KEI (RESPECT), SEI (PURITY), AND

JAKU (TRANQUILITY)
