Shimizu Kosho was between jobs in a way. In 1933 after graduation from Ryukoku University and before returning to Todaiji in Nara he spent four years in Tenryuji temple. There Seki Seisetsu (1877-1945) was his teacher, guide, and mentor. And those years were formative. May be spiritually but certainly artistically since Seisetsu was not only a priest but also a prolific painter. He planted a seed in Kosho's mind which grew, flourished, and blossomed many years later.
