It focuses on what the author sees as important "living" aspects of the religion: the human beings, the religious institution, and the religious practice. Myōshinji is the largest of the fifteen Rinzai sects. The author chose it not only because of its size but also because of its relevance as a major representative of Japanese Rinzai Zen Buddhism.
