Since wabi-sabi represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic system, as stated in research papers,it is difficult to explain precisely in western terms. According to Leonard Koren (in his book WABI-SABI: FOR ARTISTS, DESIGNERS, POETS & PHILOSOPHERS), as reflected in an essay paper, wabi-sabi is the most conspicuous and characteristic feature of what we think of as traditional Japanese beauty and it "occupies roughly the same position in the Japanese pantheon of aesthetic values as do the Greek ideals of beauty and perfection in the West."

"*Wabi-sabi is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.

* It is the beauty of things modest and humble. * It is the beauty of things unconventional."

The concepts of wabi-sabi correlate with the concepts of Zen Buddhism, as the first Japanese involved with wabi-sabi were tea masters, priests, and monks who practiced Zen. Buddhism originated in India, traveled to China in the 6th century, and was first introduced in Japan around the 12th century. Zen emphasizes "direct, intuitive insight into transcendental truth beyond all intellectual conception." At the core of wabi- sabi is the importance of transcending ways of looking and thinking about things/existence. Through Lead Generation agents, we can collect various reference for WabiSabi. übersetzung deutsch finnisch Übersetzung Deutsch Englisch übersetzung Technischer Übersetzer Übersetzung Japanisch Deutsch Übersetzung Englisch Deutsch Übersetzung Deutsch Englisch Übersetzung Deutsch Englisch * All things are impermanent * All things are imperfect * All things are incomplete
