emptiness - nothingness

[ . BACK to WORLDKIGO . TOP . ]
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 

- mu 無 emptiness - nothingness -

Try reading a cookbook, you will not be able to fill your stomach.
Try to understand MU, you will not be able to experience it.

quote
MU (無) (In Japanese/Korean) or WU in Chinese,
is a word which has been translated variously as "not", "nothing", "without", "nothingness", "non existent", and "non being".



Mushin (無心; (English translation "without mind") is a mental state into which very highly trained martial artists are said to enter during combat.They also practice this mental state during everyday activities. The term is shortened from mushin no shin (無心の心), a Zen expression meaning the mind without mind and is also referred to as the state of "no-mindness". When we realize our own nothingness then we realize the power of our true being.
Steve Weiss


Matsuo Basho and MU
The practice of Zen shaped Basho's thinking and established some life principles. R. H. Blyth, a well-known British theoretician of haiku poetry, linked loneliness, a strong theme of Basho's poetry, with the notion of mu in Zen, a state of absolute spiritual poverty, in which not possessing a thing, one can possess everything.

Journal of Bleached Bones in a Field

I set out on a journey of a thousand leagues, packing no provisions.
I leaned on the staff of an ancient who, it is said,
entered into nothingness under the midnight moon.
It was the first year of Jokyo, autumn, the eighth moon.
As I left my ramshackle hut by the river,
the sound of the wind was strangely cold.
Tr. Barnhill

野ざらしを心に風のしむ身かな
nozarashi o kokoro ni kaze no shimu mi kana

on my mind, the wind pierces
my body to the heart

quote
Tracing the application of a cluster of Daoist terms, such as zôka, shizen/j’inen, tenkô (heaven’s work), tenrai (the piping of heaven),
kyo 虚 (emptiness), and ki 気 (the primal breath),
back to Chinese critical tradition, this chapter examines how Bashô adapted these notions, particularly the principles regarding the operation of the poetic mind and the criteria of poetic quality, in forming his compositional theories. In both areas, Bashô emphasizes the importance of following zôka to poetic creativity.

In his famous haibun, Oi no kobumi (Essays in my pannier, 1687), Bashô declares that zôka is the single most important principle that runs through all arts.
snip

Zhuangzi says,
“It is only through the Way that one can gather emptiness.”
The “emptiness” is the fasting of the mind (xinzhai 心齊).
According to Lin’s notes, “emptiness” as the mental condition of apprehending the Dao designates a state totally free of subjectivity. An important path toward this state is to let the natural substratum—the primal breath—lead contemplation and expression.
The Zhuangzi afirrms that supreme cognition occurs when one has completely eliminated subjectivity and let the self become one with the cosmos:

He sees in the darkest dark, hears where there is no sound.
In the midst of darkness, he alone sees the dawn;
in the midst of the soundless, he alone hears harmony.
Therefore, in depth piled upon depth he can spy out the thing;
in spirituality piled upon spirituality he can discover the essence.


kyojitsu 虚実
Interpreted variously as emptiness and substantiality, falsehood and truth, fabrication and verisimilitude, and so forth, this pair of concepts is used widely in Chinese philosophical, literary, medicinal, and military strategic discourses.

The Master has said:
“Learn about pine from pines and learn about bamboo from bamboos.”
By these words he is teaching us to eradicate subjectivity.
One will end up learning nothing with one’s subjective self even if one wants to learn. To learn means to enter the object, to find its subtle details and empathize with it, and let what is experienced become poetry. For instance, if one has portrayed the outer form of an object but failed to express the feelings that flow naturally out of it, the object and the author’s self become two, so the poem cannot achieve sincerity. It is merely a product of subjectivity.

Edo the Castle Town

[ . BACK to WORLDKIGO . TOP . ]

- Edo 江戸 the Castle Town -

From 1603 to 1868, the city of Edo was the seat of power of the Tokugawa shogunate and the political center of Japan. In 1868 the city was renamed Tokyo and made the official capital of the nation.

Hashi Hime, Hashihime 橋姫

その人もかしこにてうせ侍にし後ととせあまりにて
sono hito mo kashiko ni te use haberi ni shi nochi,
totose amari nite


quote
A pictorial subject based on "The Lady at the Bridge" Hashihime, Chapter 45 of GENJI MONOGATARI 源氏物語 (The Tale of Genji).



The last ten chapters of the Tale are known as UJI JUUJOU 宇治十帖 (The Ten Books of Uji). This chapter, the first of the ten, introduces the Eighth Prince Hachi no miya 八宮, a half-brother of Genji, and his two daughters, Ooigimi 大君 and Naka no kimi 中君, who live with him in his self-imposed retirement at Uji (south of Kyoto). The prince is known for his piety and wisdom. Kaoru 薫, whose serious character is engendered by deep misgivings about his paternity, begins to study under Hachi no miya.
Eventually he learns from Ben no kimi 弁君, the daughter of *Kashiwagi's 柏木 wet nurse, that he is not in fact Genji's son, but rather the illegitimate son of Kashiwagi. The scene most frequently chosen for illustration shows Ooigimi playing a lute biwa 琵琶 and Naka no kimi a harp koto 琴 under the moon and clouds while Kaoru secretly peers in through a break in the villa's bamboo fence.
This scene survives in a section of the earliest illustrated version (12c) in the Tokugawa 徳川 Art Museum.

at Koishikawa

Tr. Gabi Greve


Written in 1677 延宝5年, Basho age 34
The cut marker YA is in the middle of line 2.

The name Koishikawa used to be written with the Chinses characters 礫川.
礫 means small stones, Basho here uses a pun with the hailstones.


With a stone memorial
愚考、延宝元年の吟なり。むかしは礫川と書、後に小石川とあらたむるといふ故に、此作あり。袖日記には貞享二年の部にのせたるは非なり。貞享元の春より正風体を専らに唱ふ。

Koishikawa (小石川) is a locality within Bunkyo, Tokyo.
It is located nearby with the same name are two well regarded gardens: the Koishikawa Botanical Garden (related to Tokyo University) in Hakusan, and the Koishikawa Korakuen Garden in Korakuen.

Koishikawa Garden
The construction was started in 1629 by Tokugawa Yorifusa, the daimyo (feudal lord) of Mito domain, and was completed by his successor, Tokugawa Mitsukuni.

Mitsukuni named this garden "Kōraku-en"
(Kōraku means "enjoying afterwards") after a Chinese teaching of "a governor should worry before people and enjoy after people". The garden shows strong Chinese character in its design, as it was influenced by the West Lake of Hangzhou.

詠むるや江戸には稀な山の月
nagamuru ya Edo ni wa mare na yama no tsuki

Let us write poetry!
the moon above the moutains
is hardly seen in Edo



Written in 延宝4年, Basho age 33

Basho had been back in Iga Ueno for the second time and compares the bright moon of his mountainous region with the usually clouded moon of Edo.
The town of Edo had already more than 1.000.000 inhabitants and its own environmental problems with all the wood and coal fires for cooking and heating.


.............................................................................


quote
During Basho’s youth, Edo city is in the process of rapid economic growth.
In 1672, Basho dared to move to Edo, ambitious to become a haiku master with great popularity. At this time, Basho wrote a haiku praising the prosperity of two Japanese capitals: Edo and Kyoto.

天秤や京江戸かけて千代の春
tenbin ya Kyō Edo kakete chiyo no haru


Kyoto and Edo,
Calmly balanced on a scale,
Forever in spring.

Tr. Yuasa



quote
On the giant scales
Kyô and Edo balance
spring of one thousand years

Tr. Ban’ya Natsuishi

In Edo where Basho was residing, a Kabuki actor Danjuro Ichikawa (1660-1704) made his flashy debut in 1673. In 1677, “Edo Suzume”, a guidebook of Edo sites, illustrated by an ukiyo-e painter Moronobu Hishikawa (1618-1694) was published. Commercial wealth and a growing chônin (bourgeois) population gave birth to a lively and gorgeous culture in big cities: Osaka, Kyoto and Edo.
“Tenbin” (scales) in the above haiku suggests money changer’s prosperous activity. So, the haiku shows us that Basho, free from worry and hesitation, was sympathized with the urban atmosphere of Edo under economic and cultural development. Basho’s rhetoric is bold enough to make up “the giant scales” which weighs Kyoto and Edo.
His bold rhetoric was directly related to the expanding urbanism of Edo.

quote
Songs in the Garden: Poetry and Gardens in Ancient Japan
Marc Peter Keane - review by LEANNE OGASAWARA

Way back in 1998, Steven Heine wrote an article about emotions in Japanese religion and literature. The basic premise went something like this:
While in general Buddhism seeks to restrain human emotion as being an impediment to enlightenment, Japanese forms of Buddhism are different in that they have instead traditionally sought to refine or transform the emotions into something edifying.

This perhaps unique way in which emotions are handled in Japanese Buddhism has had a significant impact on certain Japanese cultural practices including literature, and this “transformation” or refining of the emotions has traditionally taken place within the context of an appreciation of nature and the turning of the four seasons.
snip
Songs in the Garden begins with the unforgettable scene from the Tale of Genji when the Shining Prince is sitting beside his love Lady Murasaki who is ill and not long for this world. It is a heart-wrenching scene. The two are overcome with sadness that they will soon part (she will die; he will have to go on living without her).
Gazing out at the garden, Murasaki responds to the tears in her lover’s eyes with a poem:

Could it be
I will disappear, having lasted
not much longer
Then the pearls of dew
that barely cling to the lotus leaves


Genji replies:

Let us promise
that not just in this life
our hearts will be as one
As close as jeweled drops of dew
beaded on a lotus leaf


In this way, their individual sadness (and attachment) is refined into something more uplifting, something that is not only shared between the two of them, but that is aesthetically meaningful to the aristocratic elite of Heian culture.
