Daniel Ungo finds Buddha’s Way the year 2001 through an initiation in the Mokusan Dojo of Madrid, his native town. Constantly present in the Dojo’s daily practice, as well as in sesshín (retreats) at Shorin-jí temple in La Vera (Caceres), under the education of her master, Bárbara Kosen, from whom he received the Bodhisattva ordination (Zen lay practitioner) in 2007, the monk ordination in 2008 and the Dharma transmission (Shiho) in 2023, being currently a Zen master of the Deshimaru lineage.

Daniel helps the Sangha all these years by the practice of various responsibilities: Mokusan Dojo coordinator, Tenzo (head cook) and Shusso (responsible of zazen) at Shorin-jí and editor at Zenkan, among others.

In 2021 he moves to Galicia, the native land of his mother’s family, settling in Pontevedra. In 2022 he starts a practice group at the Social Center O Burgo and, in 2023, he creates an independent Dojo with the name of San Sui, Dojo of the Mountain and the Water.
