Matsunaga Gozan (1943-)
"An inexhaustible treasure."
(signed) Murasakino Gozan

"Inexhaustible treasure," the second half of the "Not one thing" verse, is also often used as an inscription on enso paintings. This enso represents the center point (what is known as the "big bang" in modern physics) from which the universe emerges. From this perspective, the universe spins out of a center point. This kind of enso also has a clear sexual implication: the circular yoni [female sex organ] is an inexhaustible source of creation.
Matsunaga Gozan is abbot of one of the sub-temples on the Daitoku-ji compound in Kyoto.
