The bluntness of his words is accompanied by a sincerity in his desire to see people move toward a state of enlightenment.

Suzuki Shōsan on Christianity, 1642. Suzuki Shosan was a Japanese samurai, and originator of what came to be known as Ferocious Zen, which advocated action and courage rather than contemplation. He wrote this attack on Christian teachings in 1642, shortly after Christianity had been banned in Japan as part of the effort to remove all foreign influences. Suzuki Shosan is among the most dramatic personalities in the history of Zen. A samurai who served under the Shogan in the 17th century, he became a Zen monk at age 41 and evolved a highly original teaching style imbued with the warrior spirit.
