Everyone who registers will receive a schedule with Zoom links. While we encourage full-time participation, you may join us for as much as you can. Please contact office@rinzaiji.org if you have any questions.

He was ordained as a monk in 1998, as an Oshō in 2014, and currently teaches at the Bodhidharma Zendo in Augsburg in the south of Germany. It was founded in the year 2000 and its name was given by Genrō Seiun Dai Oshō who participated in Zazenkai several times. Sasaki Roshi attempted to visit us in 2009 but it was unfortunately not possible due to his health. Noritake Roshi visited the center in the spring 2018.
