Japanese Archery and Zen Practice - Moon in Dewdrop

Studying Kyudo [archery] can benefit anyone that is practicing Zen since shooting exercises patience, tolerance of frustration, and the awareness of one's state of mind. Similarly, the mindfulness developed by Zen practice can help the archer. Correct breathing is essential in Kyudo, and is almost identical to that used in Zazen, offering a benefit that can be realized early.
