- Treasure Every Meeting (一期一会, ichigo-ichie)
This means when you meet a person there is no guarantee you will meet again. If you think that, then you will cherish that moment. In life, there is only one chance, and there is no sure proof that you will have another. Everyday, everything you come across may be a once in a lifetime experience. One must live each day to the fullest extent.
I encountered a nice hanging scroll. The term is derived from Zen Buddhism and concepts of transience, and it is particularly associated with the Japanese tea ceremony.
