Rinzai (in Chinese, Lin-chi) is the founder of the Rinzai sect, one of the two most important schools of Zen in Japan. Early on, Rinzai Zen became known for its emphasis on koans, "meditation subjects that could not be understood with logic, transmitted by words, explained in writing, or measured by reason." Among the most famous koans comes from Hakuin: "What is the sound of one hand clapping?"
