    Hardly any word would be necessary to explain this piece. It is tranquility of the mind that is pursued here. The piece is among the very popular pieces in the Kinko tradition, ever since Kinko Kurosawa (either 1st or 2nd) compiled it into his own repertoire in the first part of the 18th century.
