Zen Master Rakusu, Ceremony Kesa / Meditation Clothing, Red Brocade Beautiful Phoenix Pattern Design

A small version of Buddha’s patched robe, suspended from cloth straps and worn around the neck. 

The rakusu is a small garment representing the kashaya robe that is worn by Zen monks. The "bib" cloth patch worn by the Japanese monk is a rakusu, a garment unique to the Zen school that may have originated among Ch'an monks in China sometime after the T'ang Dynasty. The rectangle worn over the heart is a miniature kashaya, complete with the same "rice field" pattern seen in the third photo in this gallery. The rice field in a rakusu may have five, seven, or nine strips. Rakusu also come in a variety of colors.


Generally, in Zen, the rakusu may be worn by all monks and priests, as well as laypeople who have received jukai ordination. 


Attachment:  Rakusu Ring(white “Kan”)
