Cha-no-yu - tea ceremony - × Syabutsu - 写仏 - Buddha copying
Sya-butsu (写仏) means copying an image of the Buddha.
Sya-butsu is a Buddhist training. It is said that concentration on sya-butsu
allows us to let go of stray thoughts and to be composed. It is possible to do
sya-butsu outside of the temple nowadays. Generally, there are two kinds of
sya-butsu: copying the original image freehand, and tracing over it.
We will trace over one of the images of Buddha (different Buddha every month),
using a Japanese brush pen and Japanese paper.
After sya-butsu, you will be invited as a guest to the tea ceremony,
held in the cha-sitsu (茶室), tea ceremony room, which has tatamis.
There, you will savour a bowl of light matcha from Kyoto,
and enjoy the moment of cha-no-yu in a mood of quiet reflection.
Let’s feel the Japanese moment in Brussels!
* You can sit in the cha-shitsu in either the Japanese way or the Western way.
* It has no religious purpose.
