Taneda Santōka was a wandering poet who was active from the Taishō period to the Shōwa period. He was also a Zen priest. Many of his free-form haikus are still popular and catch people’s hearts. This work was drawn by a modern Japanese style painter Yuki Bishū, depicting Santōka who was traveling, together with his popular haiku poem. The haiku phrase is below.
Kumo no gotoku iki (Go like a cloud)
Mizu no gotoku ayumi (Walk like water)
Kaze no gotoku saru (Leave like a wind)
“Issaikū” is a Buddhist concept meaning “everything that exists in this world is a transitional thing, and nothing remains in substance. It is important to accept as it is without being interfered with by things.”
This is a popular work by Yuki Bishū, which depicts Santōka who was traveling, together with the haiku of Santōka which expressed the Buddhist concept in easy-to-understand phrases.
