Empty is the story of a zen monk named Tokusan who lived in mid 7th century China. He is a figure who appears many time in the Zen literature, and whose actions have been memorialized in many zen koans. The Mondos and Koans used as reference for the story are listed in the back of the book. The story however, should be considered my own rendition and interpretation of these stories and shouldn’t be used for educational purposes on Zen.
