Ikkyu, Hakuin, and Ryokan in many ways defined what we now think of as Zen, and they in turn are now considered quintessential Zen masters. Stevens’ inspirational biographies are by no means critical, however, and little has been done (particularly in the case of Ikkyu, for whom contemporary biographical sources are very limited) to separate apocryphal and hagiographical tales about the teachers from more reliable information.

.....and you thought they were wizened old souls dispensing pithy advice. This really opened my eyes to the fact that Zen, in its earlier days, was a real wild west.
  • Kanrad
This slim volume is in many ways a great introduction to Zen thinking through profiles of three great masters. It is a wonderful combination of historical examination and recollection of stories about the lives of these three. The selection of the figures is excellent as you see a broad sweep of different styles of living and practicing Zen Buddhism. Also, the three are each in their own way extremely influential, so it is good to understand the roles of the individuals in the overall development of Zen Buddhist religious practice. Finally, the stories are just plain entertaining, filled with humor, insight, wry observation, and wisdom. A very enjoyable read.

Anyone interested in Zen, especially in the Rinzai tradition, should know at least a bit about the three very influential Zen masters featured in this book: Ikkuyu, Hakuin, Ryokan. In addition to their legacy as spiritual teachers, each were accomplished artists.

In this book, Zen priest and accomplished translator John Stevens portrays what's known about each of these masters in an accessible and engaging way. Each profile is about 50 pages long, recounting what is known about the lives of each, without getting bogged down in non-essential details. You'll come away with a good sense of the unique influence they've have had on Zen practice.

This small volume does a wonderful job at introducing us to three of the wildest, most fascinating Zen masters. The lifestories of Ikkyu and Ryokan, in particular, are almost too good to be true. This book makes Zen comes to life in a real, down to earth kind of way. Wonderful work!
