About our teacher
Our teacher, Denko Mortensen, first became interested in Zen Buddhism in the late sixties in Denmark. He went to Ryutaku-Ji in Japan, where he met Soen Nakagawa Roshi, and later became a student of Soen Roshi's successor, Eido Shimano Roshi. Denko was ordained as a Rinzai Zen Buddhist monk on July 4th 1980. Denko received Dharma Transmission (Inka) from Eido Roshi in 2002.
In May 2011 Denko became student of H. E. Kilung Jigme Rinpoche in order to further develope his insight into Buddhism - specifically to study dzogchen.
