Soshitsu Sen XV, a retired grand master of the Urasenke School of Tea, explains the history, ceremony and spiritual philosophy of the tea ceremony. He spent his life travelling around the world after WWII, spreading peace through a cup of tea. He was born in 1923. (Sōshitsu is the name of the head, or iemoto, of the Urasenke School of the Japanese Tea Ceremony. Sen is the family name and Sōshitsu is the hereditary name assumed by the successor upon becoming iemoto.) In this volume he describes how he mastered Chado, "The Way of Tea".
