Participation in this workshop is only possible for those who receive the precepts in the following session (“Receiving the precepts”, 10-14 August)

The kesa is the clothing of Buddha. Originally Shakyamuni Buddha collected old rags, washed and dyed them with earth – kesa means “earth colour” -,
carefully assembled them point by point, and then put them on.
The kesa has since been handed down from master to disciple.

The sewing of the kesa obeys very precise rules stemming from tradition.
One generally sews it oneself, in a great concentration stemming from the mind of zazen.

This workshop is open to anyone who thinks they will one day receive the precepts of Buddhism or become a monk.
