無心 Mushin, “without mind” or “without heart” 2

1 item left


In the Zen tradition, Mushin translates to “without striving” or “without deliberate intention” and reflects the idea of letting go of material aspirations.

The concept of Mushin is very close to the Japanese metaphorical expression Mizu no Kokoro  心 or the “mind like water.” This mental attitude refers to a mind that is in total harmony with the Cosmos that it resembles a still pond of water without any ripples where the surface reflects a clear and perfectly undistorted image of the surroundings, like a mirror.
