Zen-Circle Europe Warm welcome to Zen Circle Europe! Here, Zen Circles of the Hoko-ji lineage of the japanese Rinzai-Zen are presenteded. For the abbot of the Hoko-ji monastery Saidan Oi Roshi it is a heartfelt wish to give laypersons from the west an understanding of Zen training. Among his dharma successors is Wolf-Dietrich Nolting (Rei Shin Bigan). Saidan Oi has appointed him Roshi. On our way we feel closely connected with Rei Shin Bigan. Generally, under guidance of his dharma successors Zen training will be offered in the specific Zen Circles. Interested persons are heartily invited to participate regardless of their philosophy of life. May all sentient beings be happy and find peace.
