Shortly after arrival in Japan Zen Buddhism began to have a great influence on the development of the Japanese culture and founded Much of its aesthetics The zen It has given birth to many things No other religious movement in the world has been as creative and productive You have created An art with its own quality And has created poetry Literature Drama And sculpture All that zen has created Preserves an unmistakable mark of meditation The zen He has made a meditation of things that no one would have imagined that could be associated With meditation Japan It has been the summit of Zen That reminds us That to find the truth Everything can be used The art Expresses through sensations The ideas and the cosmovision that compose the architecture of any culture And so it is that the traditional Japanese art exhales the deep imprint of Zen in the Japanese mentality Through painting poetry Architecture The art of gardens The theater does not The sword fight or the tea ceremony Zen manifested its fundamental conception of reality as an underlying emptiness
As a universal and indefinable creative force from which hatches the world and its beings Zen and its artistic manifestations restore the spontaneous Freshness of an indefinable reality The zen Discover the spring of untranslatable waters in words When Zen is practiced, the resulting art has given rise to To a journey Pacific From self-cultivation that has brought calm Serenity and concentration
