Sanbo Kyodan Zen is based on the combined teaching and practice of Harada Daiun (Great Cloud), Yasutani Hakuun (White Cloud), and Yamada Koun (Cultivating Cloud). The lineage brings together elements of the Soto and Rinzai Zen traditions. Its home practice place is San-un Zendo, (Zen Hall of the Three Clouds), located in Kamakura, Japan, and now has affiliate Zen centers and communities in different parts of the world.
