The volume offers a series of images and reflections on the relationship between water and cultural tradition in China, India and Japan, as well as considerations on a rich literary and artistic production spanning centuries. The use of water corresponds to spiritual and material needs, symbolising purity and harmony: therefore ritual immersions often take place in suggestive environments that have a strong impact on the spirit.
