This fascinating book features the author’s interviews with masters of the arts in Japan and his own experiences with the arts, along with background on the arts and ethics from Japanese philosophy and religion. Ultimately, the Japanese arts emerge as a deep cultural repository of ideal attitudes and behavior, which lead to enlightenment itself.
Suitably modest in length and scale, this book exemplifies the mindful enrichment of everyday life that we think of as Japanese and exhibits precisely those elements of Asian awareness and attentiveness to detail that appeal most strongly to the West. Carter (emeritus, Trent Univ., Canada; Encounter with Enlightenment: A Study in Japanese Ethics) discusses Aikido, gardening, tea, flowers, and pottery with learned lucidity, showing the reader how these disciplines contribute to self-transformation. For most collections.
An Excellent Introduction to Japanese Art & Spirituality
Mr. Carter's new book provides readers with a fine introduction to several classical Japanese art forms, while it explains how these cultural arts function as 'Ways' that lead to spiritual realization. The author's many years of experience in this field are clearly evident, and the book will appeal to readers well familiar with these disciplines as well as novices.
