    What is Chasabal?

    Chasabal means a cup(Sabal or jubal in Korean) from which to drink tea. It is also called Dawan or Chawan, and generally the first name is preferred.

    Sabal is usually a small cosmos, which contains the cosmos and is a zen-crystallized space for philosophy and thinking . The exterior line of a cup stretches upward, which looks like a dragon flying forcefully to the sky, and is literally called Yongseungseon(a flying dragon line). When this dragon line is infinitely extended, an limitless cosmos is created, and the bottom of Sabal becomes the axis of the earth which supports the universe.
