Answer from Master Kosen
I couldn’t put up with doing zazen without kesa and I always managed to have a responsibility which authorized me to carry the kesa during the morning zazen.
Now I practice zazen in slipway at home without thinking that this zazen is different from that in kesa.
Once I said to Jaques Espinasse, “when I put my kesa on the head, I feel that I receive a strong energy”, he answered, “when I put my kesa on the head, I give it a strong energy!”
His vision was deeper than mine and indeed, for this reason it is better to do the first zazen without kesa.
