For him who forgets the words in silence, reality comes clearly to light. He who attains quiet awakening belongs to our tradition.
Quiet awakening climbs right up to the highest peak and down to the lowest depth.

with our best wishes for a happy new year

avec nos meilleurs vœux pour la nouvelle année




I wish everyone for the coming year good luck, peace, good health and, as Master Daichi says, “Calm in the mountains as before, the day as long as it is in the life of children” filled with all the concentration in doing here and now, with the wisdom, compassion and unshakeable power of the dragon 🐉 in 2024.

With warm regards
In Gassho,
