Founding Master

Dokushô Villalba Roshi received the zen monk ordination in 1978 by  the venerable master Taisen Deshimaru Roshi and in 1987 the transmission of the Dharma by his second master, the venerable Shuyu'iyah Narita Roshi. He is the  founder and President of the  Spanish   Soto Zen Buddhist community and  the founder and spiritual director of the  temple  Luz Serena.

He is the author of more than thirty books on zen Buddhism and Eastern spirituality.  In between  translations of classic texts, and personal work, he travels to Spain, Europe and Latin America giving seminars, conferences, and retreats of zen Buddhist meditation.

He resides habitually at the zen Temple Luz Serena, together with a community of  residents, committed to the practice and teaching of zen Buddhism.

His teaching, simple and colloquial, has deeply impressed thousands of people who come to the temple to its seminars and conferences, seeking inner peace and spiritual inspiration.
