About the Author:

Shokin Furuta was born in a village called Ijira in Gifu Prefecture, not far from the town of Mugegawa, Sengai's birthplace. Furuta's early life shows similarities to that of his predecessor. Like Sengai, who became a monk when he was ten or eleven following an apparent family financial crisis, the nine-year-old Furuta was sent to a small Zen temple soon after his father's death at the age of thirty-five. Nearly eighty years later Furuta vividly recalls the day he left home. His sad mother accompanied him to a local bus stop, but simply stood there in silence, unable to lift her head as she saw him off.

Furuta endured the austere life of an acolyte at the Zen temple, but was not destined to become a priest. With humor and a deep sense of gratitude, he describes how he instead became a Buddhist scholar: his sutra-chanting was so out of tune that parishioners were unappreciative and he decided to give up the vocation of a priest. But the young Furuta, again like Sengai, loved to study, and the head priest, impressed by his diligence and passion for learning, supported Furuta in his studies despite the temple's straitened finances.

Out of gratitude for the head priest's generosity, Furuta worked hard when he became a student of philosophy at the Imperial University of Tokyo, spending many hours in the library and satisfying his hunger with scraps of food. In his second year in the graduate program of the department of philosophy Furuta discovered Daisetsu Suzuki's introductory book on Zen Buddhism written in English. Inspired by it, he went to meet Suzuki, and an unofficial master-disciple relationship developed over the course of Furuta's repeated visits.

In July 1966, after Suzuki's death, Furuta succeeded him as the second director of the Matsugaoka Bunko Foundation, which was established in December 1945 with the partial support of Mr. Sazo Idemitsu. Located in Kamakura, the foundation has charge of the massive Suzuki library. At the age of eighty-nine Furuta is still actively involved as director of the foundation in a new forty-volume edition of Suzuki's works, which is now being published by Iwanami Shoten.

Retired from professorships at Nihon University and the University of Hokkaido, Furuta continues to lecture as a guest-professor at Hana- zono University in Kyoto. Besides the fourteen-volume Collected Works of Furuta Shokin (1980-81), he has published many other books and articles on Buddhism, and especially on Zen and its relationship to the arts. His publications also include collections of his calligraphy, drawings, and haiku poetry.
