Water Basin

Ware tada taru wo shiru


I only know what is enough

A famous saying carved in a Tsukubai, a water basin used in Japanese gardens. These words also being a theme of the tea ceremony, they are often found at the entrance to a tea house. A reminder as to what values matter in our life. These words express that we can find contentment in just what we are and have at this very moment.
