For Component I in this collection I searched for among our leading translators of bonsai to the West, John Naka. The following is a concise variation of his words concerning bunjin, initially published in Golden Statements, March/April 1993.

Called after this bunjin, for bonsai it is called bunjin-gi or bunjin-bonsai (bunjin-ki). Gi or ki implies tree.
