Sesshin at Saint-George VD


Directed by Master Myoken Bec – 5th and 6th March 2016


The Zazen practice is the Zen essence. Seated on a cushion (zafu) and facing the wall, legs in lotus or semi-lotus position, knees on the ground, back straight, neck stretched, left hand on the right hand, side-hand (knifehand) against the lower abdomen, in total stillness. The breathing is calm and the attention goes especially on breathe out. The conscious mind is at rest, neither entertaining nor rejecting the thoughts, but letting them pass and concentrating on the posture and breathing.


Transmitted from master to disciple for more than 2500 years, the Zen practice became accessible to the Westerners through Master Taisen Deshimaru who brought it to Europe, where he thought the Zen essence from 1967 till his death in 1982. Master Etienne Mokusho Zeisler has been his close disciple for all those years. He received the Dharma transmission at the Gendronniere Zen Temple in 1984 when Master Niwa Renpo Zenji, abbot at Eihei-ji temple and the highest Zen authority in Japan, authenticated the mission of Master Deshimaru.
In 1990, just before his death, Master Zeisler confided to Yvone Myoken Bec the mission to create a dojo in Budapest and to transmit the teachings of Master Deshimaru in Hungary, his native country. Master Myoken followed the teachings of Master Deshimaru and Master Zeisler for more than 30 years, and himself thought in Hungary and Eastern countries for more than 20 years. He founded 2 temples in Budapest, Hungary, and one in Bucharest, Romania, as well as many dojos. In the autumn of 2002 Master Myoken received the Dharma transmission from Master Stephane Kosen Thibaut, which the same as Master Zeisler is one of the Master Deshimaru’s sucessors, the 85th patriarch within the Buddha lineage.


Touching the mind, becoming intimate with oneself, concentrating during Zazen on the unified body and mind. This teaching has been transmitted by Master Deshimaru. Neither philosophy, nor ethics, nor religion, the Zen allows us to access the origins of all philosophies, ethics or religions. Awakening source, the Zen transforms our lives here and now.
This sesshin is a period of one day and a half dedicated to the dojo Zen practice and to the concentration on the everyday life through samu, the collective manual work.
