Urasenke Daisosho Hounsai Shikishi

Energetic as the man himself, the shikishi (a paper board used to create paintings or calligraphy) is the work of the 15th Sen Soshitsu, Hounsai Daisosho (1923~). Daisosho, Sen Genshitsu has captivated people with his philosophy. In one of his writings, Daisosho, Sen Genshitsu states: "In my own hands I hold a bowl of tea; I see all of nature represented in its green color. Closing my eyes I find green mountains and pure water within my own heart. Silently, sitting alone, drinking tea, I feel these become part of me. Sharing this bowl of tea with others, they, too, become one with it and nature. That we can find a lasting tranquility in our own selves in the company of others is the paradox that is the Way of Tea."
