Wisdom of Japan Ikigai, kaizen, wabi sabi... Here begins the path to happiness
An invitation to live according to Japanese wisdom
From wa, the expression of universal harmony, to hotoke, the homage to the dead, to ikigai, our raison d'être, or kaizen, the quest for perpetual improvement, Japanese words reveal an intimate intertwining of language and philosophy.
Compiling more than forty carefully chosen words, "Wisdom of Japan" is a poetic introduction to Japanese values and beliefs. Including philosophical reflections on beauty, nature, gratitude, time... illustrated by the evocative power of the haikus of the great poet Matsuo Bashō, this book invites you to explore and experience a simpler and more conscious approach to life, by respecting the present moment, seeking meaning beyond materialism and seeking your true purpose. Here begins the path to happiness....
