Suiseki by Crispin Sartwell, Six Names Of Beauty Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Six Names Of Beauty books, Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but it's also in the language we use and everywhere in the world around us. In this elegant, witty, and ultimately profound meditation on what is beautiful, Crispin Sartwell begins with six words from six different cultures - ancient Greek's 'to kalon', the Japanese idea of 'wabi-sabi', Hebrew's 'yapha', the Navajo concept 'hozho', Sanskrit 'sundara', and our own English-language 'beauty'. Each word becomes a door onto another way of thinking about, and looking at, what is beautiful in the world, and in our lives. In Sartwell's hands these six names of beauty - and there could be thousands more - are revealed as simple and profound ideas about our world and our selves.
Suiseki by H. E. Davey, The Japanese Way Of The Artist Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download The Japanese Way Of The Artist books, “Davey uses words with clarity and simplicity to describe the non-word realm of practicing these arts.”—Publishers Weekly "From an economic standpoint, this compilation sells for a price comparable to the price of a single copy of either of the first two works. In addition, the third work, The Japanese Way of the Flower: Ikebana as Moving Meditation, is no longer in print. This makes this compilation a very good deal and the quickest way to secure a copy of The Japanese Way of the Flower: Ikebana as Moving Meditation...In addition, the content of all three works is great. Any one of these books would be worth the price, and this book is great both as a Christmas present and a book for the beach." -- Michael Donnelly Sensei, veteran teacher of Aikido The three works anthologized here are essential to understanding the spiritual, meditative, and physical basis of all classical Japanese creative and martial arts. Living the Japanese Arts & Ways covers key concepts—like wabi and “stillness in motion”—while the other two books show the reader how to use brush calligraphy (shodo) and flower arranging (ikebana) to achieve mind-body unification. Illustrated with diagrams, drawings, and photographs.
