Tatebe Kaiun was a monk of the Kōyasan Shingon sect and was active in the Shōwa era. His priest rank was archbishop, the highest in the sect. Tatebe also devoted himself to the mentoring of his younger generations. He passed away in 1988.
Tatebe Kaiun was also known as a master of calligraphy and created many works. Among his many works, the phrase he liked to write was “Inexhaustible Happiness and Longevity”. This phrase describes a wish for endless well-being and lifespan. And this work, put together with strong brushwork, also expresses such a wish of Tatebe Kaiun.
