Ritsunen Gabriele Linnebach

Ritsunen Gabriele Linnebach was born in München, Germany and began the practice of zazen in 1982. On a 1986 trip to Tokyo, she met with Gudo Wafu Nishijima Roshi; since then, she has engaged in intensive study of Master Dogen’s Shobo Genzo. From roughly that time until 2008, Linnebach devoted her life to the translation from the original Japanese text into German in close collaboration with Nishijima Roshi.
