Japan has a long history of importing, synthesizing and recreating aspects of other cultures, a practice that continues to this day. The primary source of such cultural borrowing in Japan’s early history was China, whose civilization existed for centuries at a high level hardly seen in other parts of Asia.
A young man of Western descent is said to have asked a Japanese Zen master the meaning of Zen, and the possibility of teaching him the concept. The master smiled as he poured the young man some tea. As the cup filled, the master continued to pour until the cup’s contents overflowed into the saucer and onto the table. When the young man inquired as to what the master was doing, the master replied, “You, like the cup, are too filled with your own preconceived notions, prejudices, and close-mindedness to begin to understand the concept of Zen.”
