Japanese beggar

Artist –

A man playing a flute with a wicker basket on his head, in fact, is not a poor, as the author presented it. This is Komuso-in the literal translation of the “Monk of the Void”, the poor monk of the Japanese school of Zen-Buddism Fuke. A characteristic feature of Romuso was the game on the Japanese longitudinal flute – Sikuhati. The monks used the game on the flute as a meditative practice of suyuzen. Another characteristic feature of Romuso was the custom to wear a Tengai, completely covering his head and face a basket woven from a sedge or reed. This custom was designed to show the refusal of the monks-Komoso from his own “I”.
