Chado Relay

Urasenke Tankokai Associations in North America

Urasenke Tankokai associations throughout North America will take part in this event by posting on the Chado Relay Facebook page, as well as Instagram #urasenketea with photos and captions that will spread Daisosho-sama’s message of “Peacefulness through a Bowl of Tea.”

Each Association will also create a post sharing some background on their Association, annual activities (pre-COVID) or significant events.

Earlier in the year, the Urasenke Tankokai Quebec Association started an online relay for its members which can serve as reference.

The Chado Relay will start on September 2, 2020, which marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II and will continue through the end of the year. Like the Olympic Torch Relay, it will stop in each city for two to three days before being passed to the next association.

The purpose of the relay is to create stronger ties between members and associations, to show colleagues around the world how we are continuing our tea practice, and to introduce broader audiences to the spirit of “harmony, respect, purity and tranquility.”

[GOAL] The inspiration came from Daisosho Sama’s teaching: “Peacefulness through a bowl of tea” and from Oiemoto Sama’s aim to build strong shachus.
