Tea Ceremony

Tea Ceremony is mostly celebrated in Japan and China. It evolves under the influence of Zen Buddhism. The motive of this ceremony is to maintain the balance between nature and the human soul. Just like we celebrate Christmas, New year, Thanksgiving, People celebrate Tea Ceremony. The unique thing in this celebration is that there is no specific day or date to celebrate this. A group of people invited to the tea house, all the tools are cleansed. We need to take off our shoes outside the house and sit on the ground which shows our respect to Mother Earth. Tea is prepared on the samovar and because of silence, the sound of samovar feels like music for meditation. Nobody is allowed to speak inside the house.  When the tea is served by the master, everyone silently takes sips of tea and listen to the music of nature.  Meditation helps to reduce negative emotions. We become more focused to present and a lot more. We should make tea ceremony a part of our life, it can be a life-changer in today’s World.
