Synopsis:
New edition. Flower arranging as a form of meditation, its significance and symbolism is revealed in this classic book on the meaning of the Japanese art of Ikebana. Contains a foreword by D T Suzuki.

While living in Japan during the 1920's, Gustie Herrigel studied Ikebana under one of Japan's greatest masters and by the time she left Japan in 1930 she herself had become an expert. The act of training in Ikebana is a process of achieving spiritual enlightenment; the craft of arranging flowers is a form of meditation. Her account of her education in Ikebana and her gradual understanding of its underlying symbolism is a story of great charm. She teaches the reader the disciplined but artfully natural style of flower arrangement, while providing a perceptive introduction to Zen.

In this beautifully written book we are introduced to the traditions of an older Japanese way of life, which has since been swept away by Western influence.

"The art of flower arrangement is not, in its truest sense, an art, but rather the expression of a much deeper experience of life." D.T.Suzuki.
