An Unsui – Japanese for “cloud(s) and water” – is a Buddhist monastic, who trains as a resident of a temple or walks from one temple to another, free as the clouds and flowing as water. Although clouds wander in the sky and water flows on the earth, they are each other – no water without clouds, no clouds without water. No Buddha without beings, no beings without Buddha.

This site is about practice-realization. My translations of ancient Chinese and Japanese Masters offer their realization in practice. My understanding and working progress with these texts, shows my practice in realization.
