(a) "In 1937 he retired from Chigenji and lived out his remaining years as a hermit at his hermitage known as Kakusho-ken."
(b) "Harada Roshi, had thwarted the religious conventions of his day by training lay people with monastics. Harada Roshi's training of Yasutani Haku'un Roshi, a Soto monk, in koan study and bestowal of Dharma transmission to him led to the creation of a new school of Zen Buddhism in Japan specifically for lay practitioners called Sanbo Kyodan."
As for (a), has the person who wrote this confused Harada with someone else? Kapleau himself mentions that Harada continued to teach at Hosshin-ji in Obama until his death in December of 1961 (Three Pillars of Zen, p. 273.)
As for (b), the Sanbo Kyodan website clearly states that the founder is Yasutani, not Harada, as should be known from the above fact. --Gunnermanz (talk) 07:10, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
