Merge proposal[edit]

I propose that Niō Zen be merged here. This has already been brought up at WikiProject Japan, and people there have suggested merging. The reasons are that Niō Zen was a practice, not a Zen tradition, and that it is only discussed in relation to Shōsan. It seems more appropriate to discuss it in the context of Shōsan's life, just as most of the sources do. — Mr. Stradivarius 15:14, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Support per nominator. Nio Zen was a history and seemingly doesn't have practitioners today. Even in Edo period, I don't think it was a major practice. Oda Mari (talk) 16:19, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. I can't seem to find RS that discuss this as a valid practice beyond Shōsan. I also think bringing this within the rubric of the Shōsan article will help prevent some editors from using the independent Niō Zen article to keep on expanding it in dubious directions (I had to deal with such an effort this morning).
