The knowledge of tea ceremony and the concept are called “Once in the lifetime chance and meeting”.
Once in the lifetime chance and meeting means that meeting with all people should be cherished.
It is a parable that it is so valuable that you can only meet once in a one-time life.
In many cases of education in Japan, it is commonly known as a four-character idiom, but it is said to be derived from the way of thinking of tea ceremony.
That is because there is no same tea ceremony again, and meeting with people who meet at it is very valuable.
It is a Buddhist language and means the period from the birth of a person to his death.
And it means that people meet only once.
In Japan, you may not usually experience this “one-in-one meeting” in Japan.
But, for example, when you meet new people or when you want to put something together with someone with something, think about it with this kind of perspective.
“If I have something to do with this person…”
Even if it is the same sex or the opposite sex.
It does not mean that you expect something from your opponent,
Perhaps there may be new discoveries, and there may be similarities.
Because, in any case, meeting people is interesting and something happens.
In fact, the other meaning of this “Once in the lifetime chance and meeting” is also to treat the other carefully.
If you think that every single encounter is special, do you think the other person is important?
Then we think that we will not take a bad attitude and I will naturally smile.
When we treat each other in a manner that values the other party, we can spend each other feeling good.
Yes, feelings appear in action.
Feelings of importance are reflected in actions of cherishing the other, which leads to good things for each other later.
Such a way of thinking is passed on to Japan.
Meeting people makes your life richer.
If you cherish Japanese tea ceremony “Once in the lifetime chance and meeting”, your world will expand rapidly.
