I have not recieved JOJG/sukiya living yet. They don't like me ? will you check it ?
Meaning of Suki is "like"< I like a flower, I like you. I like to drink etc> some one or any one "like" is called suki mono. mono /person. sukiya is one of archetcual style of Japanese house but term of sukiya also relate to suki and Sukimono.
"Nanboroku" which consider of bible of tea ceremony explain meaning of Suki , Sukimono. Nanbo who was Zen monk kept words of Rikyu and detail of tea tools/Cha dogu, tea ceremonies. "roku" means record.
JOGJ may want to you to know thir way of sukiya living, but they may not want you know that foundation of suki, sukimono is based on Buddhism. (that what Rikyu said. )
JOJG like to modyfi or cheng meaning of suki,Sukimono,sukiya thir way;D
It is freedom of speech and mind
I am honestly think that chenging name of the magzin will help them to grow.
I know ,I know
my posting is not answering to your question.
Please forgive my presumptuousness in correcting you Yama. I really like the Japanese language, especially the kanji, and study it a lot.
Well, I gotta disagree with one of the details above reading the word 'sukiya'. While there is a character in Japanese read 'suki', ( Ã¥Â¥Â½Ã£ÂÂÃ¯Â¼â€°meaning "like(able)", that is not the character I find associated with the term 'sukiya': Ã¦â€¢Â°Ã¥Â¯â€žÃ¥Â±â€¹
The character (Ã¦â€¢Â°)'su
', according to my kanji
dictionary, means 'number', and (Ã¦â€¢Â°Ã¥Â¯â€ž) 'suki
' means "adverse/varied fortune". The character in the middle, Ã¯Â¼Ë†Ã¥Â¯â€žÃ¯Â¼â€°'ki
' means both 'strange' and 'odd number'.(Ã¥Â±â€¹) 'ya
' of course means 'house, abode, store, and so on. I take the word 'sukiya
' to literally mean 'abode of refinement', or "place of varied experience".
Also, according to my Japanese etymological dictionary, the character (Ã¦â€¢Â°) "su/suu
" has an earlier form (Ã¦â€¢Â¸), which combines (Ã¦â€Âµ)'stick in hand' (the element seen on the right side of the kanji
), along with the element on the left side of the kanji
, which is an uncommon non-general use element meaning 'shaman-ess" ("woman shaman"); namely because it comprises an obscure element meaning to link items, and the element for woman. In this character the linked items component lends its sound to express 'chant'.The literal and original meaning of the character Ã¦â€¢Â¸, is: "woman chanting while holding counting sticks", which in modern times has come to mean primarily count, or 'kazu
', and the element has taken a simplified form with the 'link items' element replaced with rice Ã§Â±Â³
There is no connection between 'sukiya' and 'sukimono', sorry.
