Etienne Mokusho Zeisler

Etienne sitting in the large Zendo of the Gendronniere
Dharma heir of Niwa Zenji, he gave me shukke Tokudo in 1983. He was just a great calm and broad guy. Etienne Zeisler (1946 – 1990) was born in Hungary and when he was three years old his family moved to France. He started sitting zen with the monk Deshimaru in 1967 and until 1990 he did teach very much in his teacher's style.
Pine and rain
in your hands
the eternal mudra
