Dongshan Shouchu [W-G: Tung-shan Shou-shu / J: Tozan Shusho]



                Dongshan Shouchu (not to be confused with Dongshan Liangjie) was a Dharma heir of Yunmen Wenyan. A monk once asked him, “Who is the Buddha?” Shouchu’s famous reply was, “Three measures of hemp.”

[Dongshan Shouchu – Zen Masters of China: 277-78]
