Lions Roar : May 2013
a hermitage “within the city,” selfless and boundless, perhaps inspired by Tao Yuan- ming’s lines: I built a hut right in the city, But there is no noise of horses and carts. You ask me how this can be so, But when the mind is far away, the land follows of itself. Wilson makes clear that such ichigyo- mono are no longer limited to tea room or zendo—but they appear with equal frequency in restaurant alcove and mar- tial-art dojo. The threshold is everywhere. His gift in this volume is both the way he opens up some of the cultural allusions that enrich appreciation of the scrolls and how he creates each as an indication that when “tasted” deeply, life itself is more genuine, less guarded. If there is a caution, it might be simply that as with any gathering of tastes, some are richer than others. For those who love word and character derivation, Wilson is generous. In sections such as Zen, nen, we learn that on its own the character con- notes a condition of doing something with such totality or completeness that nothing remains. And then the gift of the translator’s extra touch: “Originally the Chinese character meant ‘to burn’ or a ‘flame burning’... the character com- pound often translated as ‘nature’ or ‘spontaneity’... this [has been termed] the ‘self-immolating’—again with the idea of an entity being so itself that there is noth- ing left for anything that is not itself.” In this same thickly composed sec- tion, Wilson goes on to argue that “the compound term for ‘nature’ reveals one fundamental difference between Eastern religions, in which the world is self-gener- ating, and the Western Semitic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam in which the world is created by an outside force (i.e. God).” Again, as with Juko’s cup of tea, a world or two is contained. This is read- ing to slow down with, to sip and savor. To my eye, the selections may strike some as being slightly heavy on what could be considered the samurai end of the 15% off lodging for all March and April programs.
