nicknamed “the devil” or “the demon,” was a Japanese Rinzai Zen master and abbot of Shokoku-ji in Kyoto, Japan. Daisetsu Shoen was first introduced to most Western readers in Heinrich Dumoulin‘s masterwork Zen Buddhism: A History. Daisetsu was known as a rigorous master, resulting in more than a few of his novices leaving his monastery over time. Daisetsu Shoen was an important teacher to other masters, such as Kosen Soon (who he ordained), Imakita Kosen, Ogino Dokuan and Dokun Joshu (who he transmitted to). He is known to have used beatings and shouts in his teaching regimen.
