Sesshin – Kesa

June 23 @ 20:00 - June 25 @ 16:00

| 60€

Wearing the Kesa  and transmitting it is the supreme happiness of man. He who thinks that it is no more than a tissue of narrow formalism is a puppet of his bad Karma, but he who is delighted to wear it will receive his share of happiness. Daichi Zenji best expressed the great happiness the Kesa brings to the whole Universe:

 

My body clothed with the rice field is happy

Quiet man, I’ve reached the Universe

I abandon myself to it, I go to or pertain to its will

The fresh breeze accompanies the white clouds

 

The Kesa, by Kodo Sawaki

 

Intensive zazen practice and Kesa sewing lead by Bárbara Kosen at Shorin-ji 24 and 25 of June.

This Sesshin is, in principle, aimed at practitioners who wish to deepen their practice of Kesa sewing, specially those who are sewing a Kesa or Rakusu.

Arrivals are in the evening of 23 June. Bring a flashlight, bowl, sleeping bag and  your sewing kit.

We remind you that membership of the Taisen Deshimaru Zen Association is necessary in order to practice at Shorin-ji, for which registration and payment of the annual membership fee of 20 EUR are required.
