Abstract: Article examining the biography of the unconventional Zen teacher Tōshū (or Tōjū) Zenchū 鄧州全忠, known as Nantenbō 南天棒 (Nakahara 中原 1839–1925), whose "chamber name" was Hakugaikutsu 白崖窟. It discusses in particular a reform project he proposed in 1893 before considering the nationalist dimension of Nantenbō's thought and his view of lay practice.
