Life and teaching of Bassui Zenji


Bassui Zenji : Biography

At an early age Bassui began to question his own nature, and he soon set out to find a Master. During his search he never stayed overnight in a temple but rather made his home in some isolated hut where he would practice zazen hour after hour and ponder his own natural koan, "who is the Master?" Finally he met the Master Koho Zenji and reached enlightenment.
