In the Buddhist tradition, a bodhisattva is an enlightened being who is worthy of a peaceful existence in the paradise of nirvana, but who compassionately chooses to stay on earth to help others become enlightened as well. A potent elixir made of nature itself, tea has been our bodhisattva, a spirit that's free to enter the realm of liberation but that remains steadfastly earthbound to guide us through life, and toward enlightenment. The spirit of tea continues to inspire and sustain us with its ancient, enduring wisdom as we face the day-to-day demands of life in the twenty-first century. We find it easier to choose to turn off the television, not answer the phone, sit down alone or with a friend, and take a deep breath when a cup of tea is beckoning us with its fragrant aroma and relaxing warmth.
