Wabi Sabi and Perfection



Wabi - a quality of austere and serene beauty expressing a mood of spiritual solitude recognized in Zen Buddhist philosophy.

Wabi Sabi -beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. [ Leonard Koren]

In the world of wabi and sabi there is no attempt, no attainment, no anger, no joy, sorrow, or any waves of mind of this kind whatsoever. Each existence in this world is the fruit of subjective self-training and objective pure and direct understanding. The savor of fruits comes home to our heart, and confirmation of reality takes place. We observe falling flowers at their best. By repeating this kind of direct experience, one may have calm and deep understand of life and deliverance from it, like a traveling monk who has full appreciation of everything and is nonetheless completely detached from it. ~ Shunryu Suzuki

Wabi Sabi - life as it its, the perfection of imperfection.
