Greeting from Migaku Sato

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the new website of Sanbo Zendo Weyarn. Here you can find out about our Zendo and what our Zendo group offers: what goals we pursue and what you can find with us. At this place in Weyarn we feel again and again how significant and urgent the Zen way is for people today. On this path we experience what we really are. We see the world of our being more clearly and more deeply. Since the Zen way is oriented towards community formation, we have great hope that together with you we can make the fruits of Zen accessible to as many people as possible and let the deep light of our own existence become more and more visible. So, let's sit together in Sanbo Zendo Weyarn!

Porträt Marion Kolb
Marion Kolb,
Secondary school teacher

It is wonderful to be able to fully engage in the sitting, to stay completely with yourself even in the daily work in and around the zendo (Samu) and thus quickly come to inner peace.

Despite sitting every day, I was by no means as calm and balanced as I would have wished. During the sesshin, I was able to practice staying completely with what I was doing. The hectic, arising from the feeling of always having to do the next thing in order to (seemingly) make the best use of time, disappears. That is wonderful.

I cannot imagine a better Zen teacher than Migaku Sato. He translates the texts from Japanese (7th century and others) and tries to find a language in German that a person living today can understand - which is quite an extraordinary achievement in relation to a Zen text. One senses his absolute conviction, which he also conveys as a teacher with wit and charm, so that it is also possible to listen intently during the Teisho.

Mediator and coach

A Zen sesshin is a particularly valuable time. What happens inside during this time of silence is difficult to describe in words.

Even if it is sometimes exhausting, you always go home with the experience that the practice in the Zen community gives you a deep, calm strength and presence – a growing inner certainty that carries you in everyday life and becomes your inner center.

The Domicilium Weyarn is a wonderful place where you can feel the fruits of long practice of many people. Today, no one needs to travel to Asia to experience authentic Zen practice. Everything can be found here.

I am very grateful that I found my teacher Hannelore Müller, MD. For me, she embodies authentic, living Zen. The support she has given me on the path of practice for many years is indispensable and invaluable.
