8 Korean Temples & Food
Buddhism in its original form was a highly disciplined philosophic formula for personal liberation through reunification of worldly desires, thus preventing rebirth in the endless cycle of existences, and bringing about calmness and release into Nirvana, or ultimate reality. Temple Food is a cultural method of teaching Buddhism. The most enjoyable way to meet another culture is through its food. This book is an attempt to present a very important piece of Korea`s rich cultural heritage. Through Lee`s refined photographic eye, more thatn 400 color film and digital camera photographs beautifully illustrate the wealth of the delicate colors, textures, and forms found in Korean temple architecture, painting and temple foods.

7 Smiles of the Baby Buddha
The Smiles of the Baby Buddha has been published with the idea that it might serve as a guide to both the beauty and the faults of Ky?ngju, and by extension, an introduction to Korean culture. This book also serves as a good guidebook for foreigners visiting Ky?ngju, and foreigners who come to understand Korean culture and the innate spirit of the People.Whereas many works on Korean cultural sites are little more than guidebooks, Prof. Yu’s work provides the reader with a deeper perspective, explaining each site’s significance instead of merely listing unrelated facts.From the PublisherThis book was designed to allow foreign visitors to have an authentic experience of Kyongju during a two or three-day itinerary. With this in mind, the book has been divided into two se..

6 The Whole World Is a Single Flower
More unanswerable questions from Korea, June 21, 2005 Reviewer: Paul Lynch - See all my reviews    Wow, I can’t believe that no one has ever reviewed this book; the reviews must have been lost in cyberspace. What can I say about a book that I refer to everyday since its release in 2000? I am deeply indebted to Zen Master Seung Sahn (S?ngsan) for his life long commitment to spreading the Dharma, I miss his physical presence deeply. This collection of Kongans (Japanese: Koans) is a gift that has allowed me to slowly come to terms with my own delusions. My teacher, Zen Master Robert Moore, as with many of the other dharma heirs of Zen Master Seung Sahn, uses this collection to teach their Zen students. Contai..

5 Women in Korean Zen Lives And Practices
A rare and vivid narrative of a Buddhist nun’s training and spiritual awakening. In this engagingly written account, Martine Batchelor relays the challenges a new ordinand faces in adapting to Buddhist monastic life: the spicy food, the rigorous daily schedule, the distinctive clothes and undergarments, and the cultural misunderstandings inevitable between a French woman and her Korean colleagues. She reveals as well the genuine pleasures that derive from solitude, meditative training, and communion with the deeply religious - whom the Buddhists call "good friends." Batchelor has also recorded the oral history/autobiography of her teacher, the eminent nun Son’gyong Sunim, leader of the Zen meditation hall at Naewonsa. It is a profoundly moving, often light-hearted st..

4 The Zen Monastic Experience
From Kirkus ReviewsA myth-shattering foray behind the walls of a Korean Zen Buddhist monastery. The common Western image of Zen as a religion that features unpredictable, iconoclastic teachers ``bullying their students into enlightenment’’ is, says Buswell (East Asian Languages and Cultures/UCLA), grossly inaccurate. And he should know, having spent five years as a monk at Songgwang-sa, one of the largest Zen monasteries in Korea. Here, deftly weaving scholarship and memoir, Buswell depicts what life in a Zen monastery is really like. Early chapters discuss the history and current status (not terribly vital) of Buddhism in Korea; the course (surprisingly flexible) of a typical monk’s career and of a typical monastic year; and the layout and bureaucracy of Songgwang-sa, plus a loo..

3 Seon Thought in Korean Buddhism
Book ReviewsSeon thought in the world of Korean Buddhism has played a very important role. The Seon Dharma was introduced to Korea in the late Silla Dynasty and became very influential and the main philosophy of Korean Buddhism during the middle Goryo Period.In Korean Buddhism, various ways of practice are used by Korean Buddhists, but it is Seon practice which is considered the best. Therefore there are many Seon centers in Korea where monks and nuns meditate and many dedicate their lives to the practice. As the practice is based on the philosophy, it is important to have a clear understanding of the ideas incorporated into Seon.Korean Seon is very different from the Japanese and Chinese styles. Here we propose to take a look at the philosophy of Korean Seon. Though originating ..
