Our community. Matsuo Basho and Zen Haiku
Although Zen, from its beginnings, has not been "dependent on words or letters," there has developed over the centuries a body of what might be called "Zen literature," composed of collections of koans, Zen dialogues, anecdotes, sermons and biographies and autobiographies of Zen masters, all of which are treasured by students and teachers of Zen as repositories of Zen wisdom.
Since the writing of haiku poetry has been a popular pastime in Japan since the 17th century, it is hardly possible to call the whole body of haiku "Zen literature." Nevertheless, Zen thought and experience have had a pervasive influence upon the practice of this art.
Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) was the poet who lifted the 17-syllable haiku out of the earlierand longerforms of waka and renga poetry to make of it a genre in its own right. During his lifetime several poets, principally Kikaku, Ransetsu, Kyorai, Joso, Kyoroku, Shiko, Sampu, Yaha and Hokushi, became his devoted students, embodying in their own poetry the aesthetic principles Basho had taught them. Thus a poetic tradition was established, and was passed on through the generations.
It is generally believed that Basho was trained as a Buddhist monk at Kinpukuji in Kyoto during the years 1666-1671, where his studies included Japanese and Chinese classics and calligraphy. In 1672 he moved to Edo (Tokyo), where he became actively engaged in writing poetry. Throughout the years of his residence in this city (1673-1684) he also practiced Zen meditation under the guidance of Buchho, a priest residing at Chokeiji Temple.

Prologue to Narrow Road to a Far Province
In the early centuries of Japanese history, there was a strong tradition of pilgrimage, particularly among poet-monks. This can be seen as a parallel to similar movements in medieval Europe and in America.
Some of the best known poet-monk-travelers include Sogi (1421-1502) and Saigyo (1118-90), as well as the Chinese poet Li Po (705-762). But it was the Japanese poet Basho (1644-94) who perhaps had the greatest influence on those who followed him. This is because Basho is credited with reviving an art form that was expiring to superficiality at the time the haiku
Born outside of Kyoto, Matsuo Kinsaku was the son of a low-ranking Samurai. Little is known of his early years. However, after writing verse as a child, Matsuo moved to Edo (present day Tokyo) where he worked towards establishing himself as a writer. He quickly became a central figure in the burgeoning literary scene of Edo, writing numerous hundred-verse renkus (with another poet), presiding over haiku contests and producing anthologies of verse.

The Lost Sequence
(click here for a page from the LOST coloring book!) I was playing around with sequences, and I thought I would screw around with the Shaw-Basho Polynomial: I plugged into the polyomial to get 4, and then I plugged in 1 to get 12, etc. I got the following infinite sequence of numbers: 4 12 35 89 213 511 1194 2622 5346 10150 18093 ... (goes on forever) Not too interesting, eh? Then I wrote out the differences of succeeding numbers in the sequence. For example, 12 - 4 = 8, 35 - 12 = 23, 89 - 35 = 54, etc. 8 23 54 124 298 683 1428 2624 4804 7943 ... (goes on forever) I kept doing this process. The third sequence began 23 - 8 = 15, 54 - 23 = 31, etc. When you keep going, something completely unexpected happens! Here - I've done the work for you: SEQUENCE 1: 12 35 89 213 511 1194 2622 5346 10150 18093 ... (goes on forever)
SEQUENCE 2: 23 54 124 298 683 1428 2624 4804 7943 12458... (goes on forever)
SEQUENCE 3: 31 70 174 385 745 1296 2080 3139 4515 6250... (goes on forever)

Basho's JOURNEY This small piece is entirely impossible to be translated. The occasion it had been written is clear, for Matsuo Basho left record on a volume of sheets. The volume became known as Oku no Hoso Michi ; where Oku, meaning a far side, was a name given vaguely to the north-eastern half of Japan. The poet went to the journey early in 1689; he was on it until late fall that year. This piece was written down when his journey came virtually to its end. He spent his last years finishing the volume; he deceased in 1694 when it was done. Above all what has been said, Basho was a man who saw life a journey. Every journey has one thing in common: it has to end. If you have somebody near you who is familiar with the Japanese language, the person might be able to explain the literal meaning of it. But the person has to be the one who knows life better. Of course, the best thing is you start learning it. You may download it at here . It is in ".gif" format, 9 Kbytes in size.

Basho Spring rain
conveyed under the trees
in drops. A green willow,
dripping down into the mud,
at low tide. By the old temple,
peach blossoms;
a man treading rice. With every gust of wind,
the butterfly changes its place
on the willow. All the day long-
yet not long enough for the skylark,
singing, singing. The old pond: a frog jumps in,- the sound of water. Husking rice,  a child squints up  to view the moon.  Cedar umbrellas, off  to Mount Yoshimo for  the cherry blossoms. Octopus traps -  summer’s moonspun dreams,  soon ended.  Winter downpour -  even the monkey  needs a raincoat.  Year’s end, all  corners of this  floating world, swept.

Matsuo Munefusa, alias Bash (164494), was a Japanese poet and writer during the early Edo period. He took his pen name Bash from his bash -an,
Even in Kyoto hearing the cuckoo's cry I long for Kyoto. A crow has settled on a bare branch autumn evening. The crane's legs have gotten shorter in the spring rain. Weathered bones on my mind, a wind-pierced body. This road - no one goes down it, autumn evening Another year gone hat in hand, sandals on my feet. The old pond a frog jumps in sound of water. The winter sun on the horse's back my frozen shadow. Seeing people off, being seen off autumn in Kiso. A cold rain starting and no hat so? Singing, flying, singing the cuckoo keeps busy. Visiting the graves white-haired, leaning on their canes. Midnight frost I'd borrow the scarecrow's shirt. When the winter chrysanthemums go there's nothing to write about but radishes.

Matsuo Basho is buried at the Temple at Otsu, Shiga, Japan. He was born in Iga-ueno near Kyoto in 1644 and at a early age entered the service of the samurai Todo Yoshitada. During this time he began to write poetry and in particular hokku or haiku - miniature poems comprising of seventeen syllables. After Yoshitada's death in 1666 it is likely that Basho moved to Kyoto. By 1672 he had he moved to Edo (modern day Tokyo) where he continued to pursue his writing and also taught haiku and judged haiku competitions. It was here that he had the first of his three huts in a remote location near the Sumida River. Basho's original name was Matsuo Kinsaku but he changed it to 'Basho' - after he was presented with a wide leafed banana tree (or basho tree) by one of his disciples. Although the tree is rare in Japan and the climate too cold for it to bear fruit, Basho liked it because of its large, soft leaves. The basho tree appeared frequently in his work:

Robbie basho and Steffebasho Junghans both play raga-guitar excusions and a lot more..
@import url(; Steffen published also a track at the "156 strings" guitar compilation album, and 2 great tracks at the "Wooden Guitar" acoustic guitar compilation album. Reviews and information on both otams (with soundfiles) can be found at the nex t "new guitarists page"
Steffen Basho-Junghans
After having experimented with his guitar on a number of his releases, having perfected the raga guitar style, this release is again more independent in style. It is inspired, spontaneous and sincere, mature and well crafted. "The River Suite" is a beautiful 22 minutes long finger picking song. I can't recall many more long guitar tracks with this quality, craftsmanship and inspiration. It was inspired by Virgil Thompson's "Louisiana Story". Also " Hear the winds coming " is somewhat similar in style, slightly different in mood. "The Takoma Bridge incident" pays tribute to John Fahey's steel string guitar label Takoma that supported steel string guitarists (like also Robbie Basho, Leo Kottke, Peter Lang). It's a 12 string guitar finger picking track with changing moods and references. "Rainbow Dancing" with 12 string guitar has a more happy mood, while "Autumn II" has the mood deriving from meditation into an awakening inspired reflective moment, as "spring is the freshness of water in autumn". The short "Epilogue" with 6 string guitar is a well thought out track with nice balanced contrasts in tones and ideas. On "Rivers and Bridges" various rivers have been travelled, rarely seen bridges have been crossed with such ease and fluidity !...
