Overview


Known for her profound insight and compassion, Daehaeng Sunim has impeccable credentials as a Zen master, having spent long years of training in the mountains of Korea before she began to teach. Though steeped in the tradition, she has a refreshing approach: No River to Cross avoids the intellectual trappings of many Buddhist books, choosing instead to get personal. It’s disarmingly simple, yet remarkably profound, pointing the reader again and again to his or her “True Nature”— the enlightenment that is always within.

Editorial Reviews

Francisca Cho
"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."
David McCann
"No River to Cross gives us a strong voice, at times astonishingly direct; a balance of clear explanations of the complex terms and concepts of Buddhist practice with precise, perfectly chosen, illuminating examples; and a striking relevance for today's world in Daehaeng Sunim's reflections, among other topics, on creation, evolution, and religious conflict."
Robert Buswell
"Daehaeng Kun Sunim emerges in this collection as one of the most creative and accessible of contemporary Korean Buddhist teachers, capable of using even the most mundane of daily events as grist for the mill of Buddhist teaching and practice."
