20 The Lin household must have suffered from further decline after Yinyuan’s father disappeared. Despite the hardship, however, Yinyuan was still able to receive some early education. 21 Unfortunately, poverty led him to quit the school soon afterward, since—like most children from families that were not well-to-do—he had to assume farming and wood-picking responsibilities. In total, Yinyuan only received one year of elementary education. Once he grew up, he often regretted and lamented his lack of formal education and encouraged his disciples to study diligently.

Japanese Sinophiles of the early eighteenth century could absorb the latest currents in Chinese paintings, calligraphy, poetry composition, and other arts such as seal carving, and the preparation and serving of sencha, or brewed tea. Since Ōbaku temples had also served as havens for émigrés from the defunct Ming, it seems likely that political attitudes at the temples would tend toward rationalization of why one might not serve the state, but still live one’s life with honor and integrity.

This event must have triggered Yinyuan’s spiritual quest and his later conversion to Buddhism, as Yinyuan remembered it so well that he told his disciples to put the story in his biography. This event happened when Yinyuan was only sixteen (1607). One night, he and his friends, after a day’s work, In Search of Enlightenment 29 reclined under a pine tree, watching the magnificent Milky Way in the starry sky.
