I've participated to a sesshin that you led at the temple, and that I appreciated for the most part. However, I'm disturbed by the following: why do you allow people to smoke in the dining hall and in the dormitories? Isn't this a manifestation of the ego which is stronger than respecting rules that apply in public areas?
Answer from Master Kosen
As far as I'm concerned, I no longer smoke, but am not bothered by other people's smoking.
