Yingzhen [W-G: Ying-chen / J: Oshin]

                On the first anniversary of Nanyang Huizhong’s death, his disciple, Yingzhen, arranged a memorial banquet.  One of his monks asked if they could expect the National Teacher to attend.
                “No, he won’t,” Yingzhen admitted.
                “In that case, why are we offering this banquet?”
                “So the truth will not be lost.”   

[Yingzhen – Zen Masters of China: 77]
