Welcome to
Zen-Sangha GenjoAn e.V.

„We mourn the passing of Malgosia Jiho Braunek Roshi (1947 – 2014)

May penetrating light dispel the darkness of ignorance;
Let all karma be wiped out and the mind flower bloom in eternal spring.
May we ascend to the throne of Enlightenment, and realize the Buddha Way together.


Frühlings-BuddhaThe “Zen-Sangha GenjoAn e.V.” (Hermitage of Primordial Silence) was founded in 2009 and is rooted in the tradition of Japanese Soto Zen as it was taught by the Japanese Zen Master Taizan Maezumi Roshi (1931-1995).
