* Translations like "Zen monk/Zen nun" or "Zen priest/Zen priestess" are admissible but require explanation just like the notion unsui itself: The Japanese word 'unsui' 雲水 means 'cloud and water' and is an abbreviation of kounryusui 行雲流水: 'drifting clouds, flowing water', i.e. calm and nowhere resting like the clouds and the water.
