Interesting background (http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/klu/ebfi/1998/00000052/F0030001/00159153):

"Hiroya Kawanabe was born the son of a Buddhist priest and teacher of Japanese literature, who died when Kawanabe was very young. Kawanabe also studied Buddhism by himself, and passed the examination to be a priest of his sect while still in high school."
