Synopsis

Clean waterfalls, cloudless skies, and a resonant voice. The clear taste of a malt beer. A mind cleansed of distracting thoughts. The senses heightened at a spa. Listening attentively, observing carefully, and taking careful aim. The 澄 kanji affords all these experiences. Learn to say, “The water is clear to the bottom,” “I can see a clear blue sky,” and “I sit in Zen meditation and clear my mind.”
