Mokudō Taisen Deshimaru Rōshi war ein japanischer Zen-Meister in der Sōtō-Linie und Schüler von Kodo Sawaki , einem der einflussreichsten japanischen Zen-Meister des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Deshimaru erhielt 1965 von Kodo Sawaki die Mönchsordination und begab sich im Jahre 1967 mit der transsibirischen Eisenbahn auf die Reise nach Europa. Er ließ sich in Paris nieder und versammelte in kurzer Zeit eine Schar Anhänger um sich, mit denen er sehr erfolgreich die Verbreitung des Zen-Buddhismus in Europa begann. Es entstanden zahlreiche neue Zen-Gruppen, die die Praxis des Zazen übten.

1970 gründete Taisen Deshimaru die Association Zen Internationale . In den 1970er Jahren erhielt er Shiho von Meister Yamada Reirin, dem damaligen Leiter des Eihei-ji Tempels in Japan, und wurde Kaikyosokan des Sōtō-Zen in Europa. 1979 gründete er den ersten Zen-Tempel in Europa „La Gendronnière“, wo heutzutage regelmäßig viele Menschen an Sesshin, dies sind mehrtägige intensive Meditationsübungen, teilnehmen.

Am 30. April 1982 starb Deshimaru in Japan.

Zitate Taisen Deshimaru

„Keep your hands open, and all the sands of the desert can pass through them.“

—  Taisen Deshimaru
Context: Keep your hands open, and all the sands of the desert can pass through them. Close them, and all you can feel is a bit of grit. As quoted in Zen to Go (1989) by Jon Winokur, p. 126

„It's enough just to be without hypocrisy, dogmatism, arrogance — embracing all opposites.“

—  Taisen Deshimaru
Context: Zen is not a particular state but the normal state: silent, peaceful, unagitated. In Zazen neither intention, analysis, specific effort nor imagination take place. It's enough just to be without hypocrisy, dogmatism, arrogance — embracing all opposites. As quoted in The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Buddhist Wisdom (2000) by Gill Farrer Halls, p. 162

„Religions remain what they are. Zen is meditation. Meditation is the foundation of every religion.“

—  Taisen Deshimaru
Context: Religions remain what they are. Zen is meditation. Meditation is the foundation of every religion. People today feel an intense need to go back to the source of religious life, to the pure essence in the depths of themselves which they can discover only through actually experiencing it. They also need to be able to concentrate their minds in order to find the highest wisdom and freedom, which is spiritual in nature, in their efforts to deal with the influences of every description imposed upon them by their environment. Human wisdom alone is not enough, it is not complete. Only universal truth can provide the highest wisdom. Take away the word Zen and put Truth or Order of the Universe in its place.

„Train the body and develop stamina and endurance. But the spirit of competition and power that presides over them is not good, it reflects a distorted vision of life.“

Context: Train the body and develop stamina and endurance. But the spirit of competition and power that presides over them is not good, it reflects a distorted vision of life. The root of the martial arts is not there. As quoted in Armed Martial Arts of Japan: Swordsmanship and Archery (1998) by G. Cameron Hurst, G. Cameron Hurst, 3rd, G. Hurst I, p. 4
