Zen Teaching

This dojo is directed by Master Myoken Bec

Just before his death in 1990, Master Mokusho Zeisler gave Yvon Myoken Bec, the mission to create a dojo in Budapest - to spread the teachings of Master Deshimaru in Hungary, his country of origin and in Eastern Europe.

Master Myoken followed the teachings of Master Deshimaru and Master Mokusho Zeisler for more than thirty years. He himself has taught for fifteen years in Hungary and in Eastern Europe. He founded two temples, Taisen-ji, in Budapest, and Hôbo-ji nearby, as well as dojos in Bucharest and Zagreb.

In the fall of 2002, Master Myoken received the dharma transmission from Master Stéphane Kosen Thibaut, who along with Master Mokusho Zeisler is one of the successors of the dharma of Master Deshimaru, making him 85th patriarch in the lineage of Buddha.

On the days and times shown below, the Dojo is opened for the practice of Zazen. Zazen lasts around an hour and a half. We ask you to arrive 10 minutes in advance to prepare yourself for Zazen.
