Gagaku

 When I was new to Zen, I lived with Loring Palmer. After zazen at Sokoji and service, we'd walk home, clean the house and make a macrobiotic breakfast, eat, drink tea and then we'd break our silence. One morning Loring played an album of Gagaku, ancient Japanese music from before Kabuki and Noh. Loring had various ways to invite calm to stay a while.
