"The least has to be raised to the greatest, the ordinary has to be raised to the extraordinary, the earth has to be made heaven. They have to be bridged, no gap should be left. Zen says both the ordinary and the extraordinary, both the earth and heaven are real, but they are not two. Bridge them-so tea becomes prayer, so the most profane thing becomes the most sacred. It is a symbol." --OshoVom Verlag:
A cup of tea is the most ordinary thing in the world, yet Zen changes this ordinary thing into an extraordinary experience. The tea ceremony is an example of how to bring a different quality of awareness to one of the simplest acts in life: drinking a cup of tea. Osho shows how the art of tea is a form of meditation, telling Zen stories and anecdotes to explain the basic concepts behind the tea ceremony and the original purpose in the Zen tradition of each element of this gracious and refreshing way of gathering together with friends. The beautifully designed box contains a 144 page book, illustrated with forty pages of colour, along with a beautiful set of two tea cups and a bamboo mat - everything needed to transform this mundane act of daily life into something sacred.
