The power of our inner light to transform the world
In this new collection of Dharma talks, Seon Master Daehaeng shows us everything as a part of ourselves – nothing is separate.
"You are connected with everything in the universe. All the energy, creativity, and insight of the universe is flowing together with you. Right now. Free for anyone to use. And no matter how much you use, it will never run out. When we begin to live in accord with this connection – call it Buddha-nature, God, the foundation, or one mind – this energy and wisdom can flow through us. This connection is there within each of us, calling to us, waiting for us to pay attention." (DRM free)
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 (1927-2012) was a rare teacher in Korea: a female Seon(Zen) master, a nun whose students included monks as well as nuns, and a teacher who helped revitalize Korean Buddhism by dramatically increasing the participation of young people and men.
She broke out of traditional models of spiritual practice to teach in such a way that allowed anyone to practice and awaken, making laypeople a particular focus of her efforts.
