In this talk we hear a little about Hakuin's early life and what led him to becoming a monk. Jyotipakshini talks about his strenghts and the characteristic aspects of his personality, his determination and intense dedication, as well as his highly critical nature, his struggles and setbacks.

We hear a little about the two schools of Zen and about koan practice, as well as Hakuin's later life as a prolific teacher and reformer of the Rinzai school.

This talk was given at the Glasgow Buddhist Centre in July 2011.
