About the Author

Daehaeng Sunim has emerged as one of the most creative and accessible of contemporary Korean Buddhist teachers. Her disciples, quite unusually, also include a number of monks-something unheard of previously in a patriarchal monastic tradition. The organization she founded over three decades ago, the Hanmaum Seonwon, has emerged as one of the most influential Korean Buddhist institutions today, with over fifteen domestic branches and ten overseas centers.
