"Ennin reaches the China Sea"

During the years 838-847AD Jikaku Daishi (Ennin)
traveled in Tang-dynasty China in search of the Dharma.
Today's Tendai practices, ceremonies and chants
are derived in most part from this one great bodhisattva
and what he learned and brought back from China.
This is JOSHIN Jon Driscoll's 3-panel sumi-e.
