Takahashi Yūhō is a monk, who serves as the abbot of the Daiaji, Zen temple in Fukui Prefecture. He is quite popular for his lightly spoken Dharma talks. As an accomplished calligrapher, he has also left behind many works.
This joint work features a Japanese-style painter Miyake Wakō’s painting of bamboos with the calligraphy of “Wakei Seijaku” written by Takahashi Yūhō. The calligraphy says, “Get along with everyone, value harmony in everything, respect for each other, do everything with a pure heart, and you’ll have a calm and undisturbed mind in all circumstances.” These are the words that describe the attitudes at the tea ceremony. Under the deep history of association between Zen Buddhism and the tea ceremony, the Zen priest Takahashi Yūhō expressed the meaning of these words in a relaxed and soft calligraphic style. The bamboos painted in a single color of sumi ink next to the calligraphy represent a dignified appearance growing in the silence to allow the calligraphy and the painting to resonate with each other, which thus makes this one of the noble works of art.
