AbstractThe article provides information on Zen Master Hakuin, who is considered as the greatest light of Rinzai Zen in Japan. It presents a background on his teenage life, including his decision to leave home when he was 15 to take up a religious life, and his study of the Lotus Sutra, which is said to be important for Japanese Buddhism. It also mentions that Hakuin practiced meditation in isolation and discusses several spiritual crises that he passed through.
