About the Harada-Yasutani School of Zen

Harada-Yasutani (also known as Sanbo Kyodan or "Three Treasures") school of Zen [114] was established in Japan by D.S. Harada Roshi and his student and close collaborator H.R. Yasutani Roshi. The school is one of the smallest (about 3,000 adherents in 1984, Faulk 1988:158, see note #12 below) Buddhist organisations in the post-war Japan. It is very energetic and iconoclastic. It combines elements of Japanese Soto (esp. teachings of Dogen Kigen and his Dharma grandson, Keizan Jokin) and Rinzai (esp. teachings of Hakuin Ekaku) traditions while its 'graduates' constitute the lion share of all Zen teachers currently active in US, Canada, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Philippines and Australia. For details of other schools and lineages see the Schools of Zen Buddhism document.

Dharma Heirs and Teachers of the Harada-Yasutani school

Notes:

  1. Sources of information are indicated by a number in square brackets "[nn]"
  2. Persons who provided data or corrections to this document are acknowledged at the bottom of this page
  3. Following Japanese custom, family names are written first and given names follow a comma, e.g. 'Harada, Tangen' and 'Kapleau, Philip'
  4. Teachers belonging to the Diamond Sangha lineage are listed in bold print.
  5. Senior students who upon completion of their Zen studies declined to assume teaching responsibilities are marked with words "declined to be a teacher".
  6. Students who declared his or her independence ahead of completion of the customary Zen training schedule are indicated by words "gone independent".
  7. Junior/Trainee/Apprentice teachers, i.e. ones who are not ready (according to their own teachers) to assume independent teaching respnsibilities, are indicated by words "assistant teacher"
  8. Word "un" (J. "cloud"), occuring in the Buddhist teaching names is one of the hallmarks of the Sanbo Kyodan lineage. Suffixes "ken" and "an" mean "house, lineage" and "hermitage, small temple", respectively. These suffixes indicate that the holder of such teaching name can, at least potentialy, continue tradition under their own "awning" as it were.
  9. Some of the teachers authorised by Yamada Koun Roshi have also received additional recognition and confirmation by Kubota Roshi. However, there are also teachers, who are dharma heirs of Yamada Roshi, that have refused to be subjected to such re-confirmation procedure, and in most of the cases are not recognised as teachers of Zen by Kubota Roshi.
