In the Golden Hall of Horiuji and the Pagoda of Yakushiji, we have noteworthy examples of the durability of our wooden architecture. Teaism was Taoism in disguise.
Confucianism, with its deep-seated idea of dualism, and Northern Buddhism with its worship of a trinity, were in no way opposed to the expression of symmetry.
Perhaps they have migrated to heaven. If you are using a round kettle, the water pitcher should be angular.
The southern Zen spread with marvellous rapidity, and with it the tea-ritual and the tea-ideal of the Sung. The body itself was but as a hut in the wilderness, a flimsy shelter made by tying together the grasses that grew around,--when these ceased to be bound together they again became resolved into the original waste.
It is to be regretted that as yet there appears to be no adequate presentation of the Taoists and Zen doctrines in any foreign language, though we have had several laudable attempts.
Later, at Nikko and in the Nijo castle in Kyoto, we see structural beauty sacrificed to a wealth of ornamentation which in colour and exquisite detail equals the utmost gorgeousness of Arabian or Moorish effort. Since Zennism has become the prevailing mode of thought, the art of the extreme Orient has purposefully avoided the symmetrical as expressing not only completion, but repetition.
The East and the West, like two dragons tossed in a sea of ferment, in vain strive to regain the jewel of life. The tea-ideal of the Sungs differed from the Tangs even as their notion of life differed. And in the harp arose the tempest of Lungmen, the dragon rode the lightning, the thundering avalanche crashed through the hills.
Would that some great wizard might from the stem of society shape a mighty harp whose strings would resound to the touch of genius. He would contort your muscles and dislocate your bones like any osteopath.
The first independent tea-room was the creation of Senno-Soyeki, commonly known by his later name of Rikiu, the greatest of all tea-masters, who, in the sixteenth century, under the patronage of Taiko-Hideyoshi, instituted and brought to a high state of perfection the formalities of the Tea-ceremony.
Insects can sting, and even the meekest of beasts will fight when brought to bay. Even to-day, in spite of centuries of unification, the Southern Celestial differs in his thoughts and beliefs from his Northern brother as a member of the Latin race differs from the Teuton.
The travellers Giovanni Batista RamusioL. Whatever sectarian pride may assert to the contrary one cannot help being impressed by the similarity of Southern Zen to the teachings of Laotse and the Taoist Conversationalists.
Why the display of family plates, reminding us of those who have dined and are dead? What Rikiu demanded was not cleanliness alone, but the beautiful and the natural also. In joy or sadness, flowers are our constant friends.
Before a great work of art there was no distinction between daimyo, samurai, and commoner. Mind speaks to mind. It folds and unfolds as do the clouds.
The Naturalesque school, on the other hand, accepted nature as its model, only imposing such modifications of form as conduced to the expression of artistic unity. In its philosophical aspect early Zennism seems to have affinity on one hand to the Indian Negativism of Nagarjuna and on the other to the Gnan philosophy formulated by Sancharacharya.
One cannot listen to different pieces of music at the same time, a real comprehension of the beautiful being possible only through concentration upon some central motive.
