Also read Douhou Kosei. Lit. Dongfeng's tiger voice. A Zen ‘T dialogue in which a tiger is a metaphor for spiritual strength. The story, case 85 of the Biyanlu (Jp: HEKIGANROKU •ÉŠÞ˜^, 1300), begins when an unidentified monk asks Dongfeng (Jp: Touhou ‹Ë•õ), a little known Rinzai —ÕÏ monk who is called after his residence on Mt Dong (Jp: Tou ‹Ë), "What would you do if you met a tiger on this mountain?" Dongfeng replies by roaring like a tiger. The monk pretends to be frightened, and Dongfeng laughs. The story is included among "pictures of Zen occasions" *zenki-zu ‘T‹@}. Kanou Sanraku's Žë–ìŽRŠy (1590-1651) well-known painting of the theme (Private collection) shows two priests in conversation and a snarling tiger, but adds a Chinese scholar to the scene.
