Yen-tʾou Chʾuan-huo (Jap., Gantō Zenkatsu; 828–87). Chʾan/Zen master, dharma-successor (hassu) of Te-shan Hsuan-chien. His death, murdered by robbers, caused the problem of ‘Yen-tou's cry’: far from accepting death with equanimity, he uttered a cry heard for miles around. Hakuin solved the problem when he attained enlightenment and said, ‘Indeed, Gantō is alive, strong, and well’.
