Seiju Mammoser



Seiju Mammoser, of the Albuquerque Zen Center, was the second of three of Joshu Sasaki’s oshos (priests) I interviewed. Like Myokyo, Seiju denied being a teacher. “I wouldn’t teach you how to sit. I would sit. I would say a few things, and what you understood hopefully you’d do. You know, it’s like, am I gonna teach you how to breathe?”
