a quiet and eccentric Soto Zen Buddhist monk who lived much of his life as a hermit. Ryokan is remembered for his poetry and calligraphy, which present the essence of Zen life. His poetry is often very simple and inspired by nature. He loved children, and sometimes forgot to beg for food because he was playing with the children of the nearby village. Ry?kan refused to accept any position as a priest or even as a "poet." In the tradition of Zen his quotes and poems show he had a good sense of humour and didn't take himself too seriously.
