Sûden was a Zen monk who acted as a religious advisor to Tokugawa Ieyasu and as a result played a notable role in that sphere in the foundation of the Tokugawa shogunate. Along with other scholars he drafted the Buke shohatto for Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1615 and read the document before an assembly of daimyô at Fushimi that same year. He was also known as Konchiin Sûden.
