Chapter Summary

This chapter is structured taking into account two levels: the cultural ties of the Honganji-ha with a school of tea, the Yabunouchi-ryū and the practice of the tea ceremony following the Urasenke school within a Shin Buddhist environment, namely at a temple belonging to the Ōtani-ha. Some aspects regarding the impact of the Pure Land tradition in the historical development of the tea ceremony is provided at the beginning of the chapter. It provides a detailed account on the practice of chanoyu in a Jōdo Shinshū environment. Both the practice within a Shin Buddhist environment of chanoyu according to the Urasenke (which has a deep connections with Rinzai Zen Buddhism) and the Yabunouchi (which has close cultural ties with the Honganji-ha) are analysed here. The chapter argues that Pure Land Buddhism has been an influential religious source in the development of Japanese culture.
