AbstractThis study concentrates on the relatively unknown Rinzai Mino line to
illustrate the liveliness of Rinzai Zen practice in Meiji Japan. Even as
struggles over the precepts and politics were being waged within the Zen
denominations, some clerics attempted to carry on with their quest for
awakening in relative isolation. Through a study of three monks, Toju
Reiso, Tairyu Bun % and Seishu Shusetsu, strategies employed to preserve
Rinzai Zen's spiritual legacy in the face of the turmoil of Meiji are highlighted. This article illustrates how these monks did their best to continue
their eremetic existence and to pick up the pieces left by the widespread
destruction of Buddhist temples and monasteries in early Meiji Japan.
