Question

This dialogue inter-godos, inter-disciples by consequence, it is for good.

Remark: your view on the dojo of Paris is a little limited, it is not at all monolithic in this dojo and it is normal, you do not come here, one day perhaps... things change. There are several energies in this place, between Katia Robel and Philipe Coupey, they are not really in the same ki, and yet we come across in the dojo...

Another remark: We absolutely don’t whisper the hannya shingyo, some godos recites others sutras brought from Japan, with their disciples, it is their business, and others are closer, in my opinion, to the living teaching of Master Deshimaru.

As for myself being given the ordination by Roland, having practised with Etienne and yourself, in Brittany (island of Batz) and following the monk Philippe Coupey for more than 10 years and the sangha without residence, I thank you all for your teaching... your development on the sotoshu arrives at a point, I am persuaded, where we will meet ourselves between disciples of the 1st and 2nd generation.

Another remark: the 2 “FBI” who are in PARIS make shit with 10 pennies per hour and only wait to find their wives and children in Japan, let us have a little compassion for them!

A fresh blow of wind has arrived in the hot room?

Answer from Master Kosen

Thank you for your testimony and all my best wishes to Philippe.

Discuss together.

Dear Stephan,I’ve read the various confrontations between Roland and you, and it makes me really happy that you can discuss together, as you had answered it to me. You are very different, but I do not cease being persuaded that you received the same marrow, and that you both try to retransmit it as well as possible, each one his way. I do not ...

Close disciple of Kodo Sawaki.

Kojun Kishigami Roshi, close disciple of Kodo Sawaki, in conference today in Paris, said that Deshimaru had grafted a simple branch in a tree while bringing Zen to France, but he hadn't sown seeds being able to spread his transmission, to develop deep roots (I was a little surprised since there were disciples of Deshimaru in the front row)... he...

Harada's sesshin.

How is it possible that you are the only one to have refused to take part in the sesshin of Harada and that all the other disciples of Master Deshimaru were there knowing that he criticized and envy their Master?

I like to speak with different people of different sanghas...

Hello, Thank you for your answer to my question about spiritual pride. I have just read your answer on the legitimacy of your line compared to the one of the Sotoshu. I only took part in one sesshin with you. That day, I realized that Roland was the one who I wanted to continue this particular relation with, woven starting from ordination. ...
