Praise for Seon Master Daehaeng’s No River to Cross
"No River to Cross speaks directly and simply from the heart, much in the manner of Shunryu Suzuki's Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind. Master Daehaeng's ability to penetrate the skin with plain and pointed words should give this work the same longevity."
—Francisca Cho, Georgetown University, translator of Everything Yearned For
“This first taste of a fresh female voice leaves you hungry for more." —Shambhala Sun
Seon Master Daehaeng was one of the most respected Buddhist teachers in Korea. She famously taught monks as well as nuns, and put a special emphasis on teaching laypeople how they too could practice spiritual cultivation and so awaken from the upside-down dreams that rule much of our lives.
