036. Takuin Minamoto

Takuin Minamoto was born on May 24th, 1973. Despite not having an interest in spiritual seeking, on December 1st, 2006, Takuin exploded into a being devoid of search and searcher. This destructive event ended everything other than what was naturally present. It was an ‘accident’ beyond the touch of structured teachings.

“People have asked about this event and seem to assume that it was a peaceful transition, as if I had cultivated something through time and blissfully ‘became the real me,’ whatever that means. Still, others think it led to gaining what was desired. But none of that is true.

The realization was an explosion that destroyed everything that came before. Nothing was gained, and everything was lost. There were only sensations, and the perception of things happening.”

After a short period of re-adjustment, Takuin began writing and exploring words that arose from day to day events and meetings with other people. This led to the eventual creation of Takuin.com – Life Beyond the Image. Today, Takuin spends most of his time meeting with others, either in-person or online.
