          The Venerable Ernest Kaundinya Shinkaku Hunt was born, on the sixteenth day of August 1876 at Hoddesdon, Hertford­shire, England. He received an elementary education from a governess in his home. At the age of eleven he went to Saint Paul’s School, London, as a day scholar. A year later he enrolled as a pupil in the Cranbrock Grammar School in Kent, after which he entered Eastbourne College in Sussex from which later he graduated, passing the Oxford Junior and Senior Locals.

          Feeling an inclination to go to sea, he became a midshipman in the British Mercantile Marine At one of the ports on the ship’s call he met by chance, a young Buddhist Indian who kindly invited him to his house and gave him some pamphlets which explained the Teachings of Karma and Rebirth as taught by the Lord Buddha. These doctrines fascinated him and went deep into his subconscious mind. Later, being spiritual minded, [he studied for the Church of England priesthood but found the 4Buddhist teaching prevented him from wholly accepting the ‘ Christian faith.

            He came to the Hawaiian Islands in 1915 and after studying the Buddhist religion for several years wrote an Outline of Buddhism as a Thesis for the degree of Doctor of Pharma and ordination as priest, from the Burma Buddhist Mission affiliated with the University of Rangoon. He founded the International if Buddhist Institute of Hawaii in 1932, and was elected life presi­dent of the Institute.

        The Venerable Rosen Takashina, Archbishop and head of the Soto Sect in Japan, came to Honolulu in 1953 to formally open the new temple. Before leaving the Island, the Archbishop gave him a Soto Zen ordination.

          When the I.B.I. affiliated with the western Buddhist Order, he was appointed the Deputy Superior General of the w. B. o. for the Pacific Area.


          It was more than half a century ago that Venerable Ernest K. Hunt began his preaching of Buddhism in the Hawaiian Islands. Many works have been done for the English speaking Buddhists in Hawaii. His contributions are being acknowledged by all Buddhists in Hawaii regardless of their sects and denominations.

         Venerable Hunt is now nearly ninety years old, and is in good health. He is still carrying on his work to spread the teaching of Buddhism.

          His work which is now entitled “The Buddha and His Teach­ing” was written and published in booklet form many years ago for the Buddhist Sunday School use. It is so well presented fort young people that I asked Venerable Hunt’s permission if I could compile it into a new book with illustrations. He gladly gave me his consent.

         I wrote immediately to Mr. Sosei Sawa, President of Aoyama Shoin Inc., Tokyo. Mr. Sawa also gladly accepted my request.

        I sincerely hope that young Buddhists will learn more about the teaching of Buddha through this book and walk together hand in hand on the righteous way shewed by the Lord Buddha.
