2.3 Shakuhachi

Shakuhachi is the quintessential bamboo flute of Japan made famous by Komuso Priests of Emptiness.
They wandered the Japanese countryside playing the shakuhachi for alms.
The Shakuhachi epitomized the ethereal world the Komuso lived in - a world of chants, meditation, and impermanence.
The sound is sublime. The playing a ritual. Daily practice will introduce the player into a new world.
