While its ultimate historical origin is in the simple begging bowls used by the Buddha and his monastic followers, Oryoki developed in Japan into a precise, efficient, and profound practice of meditation in eating. In the 1970's, having been supplicated three times, Kobun Chino Otogawa Roshi gave the transmission of Soto Zen Oryoki practice to Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche who in turn transmitted it to his western students. Oryoki continues to be practiced in Trungpa Rinpoche's Shambhala community during dathuns (month-long group meditation retreats) and other intensive meditation programs. For more on the history of Oryoki, its use in the Shambhala community, and particularly on the liturgy which Trungpa Rinpoche joined to the Oryoki practice, see Oryoki and the Oryoki Chant by Lama Tony Duff.

Included in this set are four black plastic nesting bowls with wooden spoon, setsu stick or cleaner, and chopsticks. The largest bowl measures 2 - 3/8" high and 4 - 7/8" diameter across the top.

4 of 5 Different Utensils March 26, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Norfolk, Virginia  
Bowls are fine. The cloths I ordered as well, are  great. It’s the utensils. The website photo depicts what look like iron wood or walnut utensils. The utensils I received were cheap looking, coated bamboo(?). The shape of the spoon and chopsticks even differ. The ones received are akin to the disposable type (particularly the chopsticks). My chopsticks have a knot at center that I suspect will lead me to the challenge of eating with one chopstick. Yes, the set is the fairest price on the internet, but the photo should depict what a customer is actually purchasing.
