Kanzan Egen

                On the day of his death, Kanzan Egen told his disciples, “I ask only this of you. Dedicate yourselves to the Great Matter!” Then he donned his travel clothes and went to stand quietly by a pond near the monastery’s front gate. In this manner, he died.

[Kanzan Egen – Zen Masters of Japan: 97-99, 113]
