Dear Nishijima Roshi,
on Saturday we held our first meeting with Judo Jürgen Sensei giving lectures onShobogenzo chapter Bendowa here in Frankfurt. 20 participants took part and used this wonderful occasion to get a basic introduction into buddhism.
His profound knowledge gripped the audience and this whole afternoon flew past in no time. Especially the opportunity to ask questions created a dharma dialogue being inspiring for us all.
Traditionally used to formal Teisho an private Dokusan this form of dialogue will open up a new vivid zen-understanding and we are looking forward to meeting him the next time.
Best regards

Dear Ven Zushi San,

Thank you for your information on Ven Juergen Seggelke's Buddhist lecture in Frunkfurt, and I think that he has very nice ability to think philosophical problems logically, therefore his talks might be very understandable. And we should never forget that Gautama Buddha's Buddhist lecture is also very logical, and so in 21st Century we should always have our Buddhist lecture on the basis of western logic too.

I expect that his logical explanation of Buddhist philosophy will spread through Germany, and I think that it might be very useful to spread True Buddhist thoughts in Germany.
