Author and coauthor Anna RUGGERI TAKESHITA
Details In this article, the author explored Suzuki Daisetsu’s (1880 - 1966) understanding of Hakuin Zenji (1685 - 1768) and his teachings. Suzuki Daisetsu did not mentione much about Hakuin Zenji in his many works. The author enumerated and analyzed the main works written about Hakuin Zenji in the Suzuki Daisetsu Complete Works. The general impression is that in some cases Suzuki Daisetsu used Hakuin’s words to endorse his own thoughts. At the same time, we can see that some of the deepest aspects of Hakuin’s teachings were also grasped by Suzuki.
