Ikkyu Sojun

Ikkyu Sojun (1394-1481) was a Zen master renowned for his teaching, calligraphy, and revolutionary shakuhachi (bamboo flute) playing. He founded what came to be known as “The Red Thread” (erotic) school of Zen and scandalized the Buddhist community when, at age seventy, he moved his lover into his own quarters in his temple.
