Hakuin's Idle talk on the night boat

Postby TigerDuck on Tue Dec 31, 2013 10:37 am

Hi All,

I am looking for a teaching of Hakuin "Idle talk on the night boat".

In the Wild Ivy, there is preface at the last section about it.

There is also a special chapter in book Hakuin's Precious Mirror Cave for that idle talk on the night boat.

Are they different or same?

Through nonconceptuality, he is immovable.

You may also find some more if you search for the name in Romaji: Yasenkanna or Yasen Kanna.

I posted a few resources a while back on DharmaWheel RE Yasenkanna and Orategama, two of the texts in which Hakuin describes the naikan and nanso no ho practices. Here they are, hope it helps:


A Waddell translation of Yasen Kanna side-to-side with one by Leggett:

A good translation of the preface to Yasen Kanna, in which the naikan method is summarized, may be found in one of Shodo Harada Roshi's articles here:

For those with access to JSTOR, an older translation of Yasen Kanna is here:

Yampolsky's The Zen Master Hakuin contains a translation of Orategama:

Finally, translations of both Orategama and Yasen Kanna be found in this volume which has been posted online (pdf):
