Like Lions Learning to Roar

You have to meet the teacher halfway. You just do.

There’s no way around it.
You have to be struggling and working and trying to figure things out for yourself first. Then everything else can happen.

Each one of us has this bright, inherent “Buddha-nature” within us, and through it we are connected to all the universe. But it’s up to us to discover this connection. It’s up to us to live in tune with this inherent treasure. We have to figure out how this plays out in our life.

The first step is simply trusting this non-dual nature. Know that you have it, have faith that it’s connected to everything you’re going through, and entrust everything there. Keep doing this and observing. Let go of your opinions like this. Let go of what’s going well like this. Let go of what’s going badly like this, and the whole time, keep paying attention.

Step forward bravely, holding onto your bright, inherent nature, and a new world will begin to reveal itself.

MyHeartCD_outline New Audiobook! 

My Heart is a Golden Buddha
by Seon Master Daehaeng,
narrated by Garan Fitzgerald.

A wonderful audio edition the best selling book!

If you haven’t read the book, these are kind of different stories! While some are very traditional Buddhist tales, most are like nothing you’ve heard before.

A woman who wants to sell her mother-in-law….
A monk who became a cow…
Worm soup that saves a teacher…
The decisions of a man hanging from a cliff…

Yet the endings and Daehaeng Kun Sunim’s explanations are really satisfying. It feels like they scratch an itch so old we stopped noticing it. Go ahead and take a listen!

Parents, children, and our inherent essence

Children, Parents, and the Dharma all around us!

A collection of Dharma talks by Daehaeng Kun Sunim

Because you are inherently connected with your children and everything around you, as you entrust your problems to your essence, your foundation, the light that arises from this will also grow brighter within the other person.

So there’s no reason to blame others. Instead, work on using your mind wisely. If you can go forward with this kind of wisdom, how could your family not be happy and successful?

Touching The Earth_72dpiTouching The Earth
The Power of Our Inner Light to Transform the World

In this new collection of Dharma talks, Seon Master Daehaeng shows us everything is 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 for us to pay attention.

Trusting the Enlightenment that’s Always
Right Here

Seon Master Daehaeng’s ability to reach out to a wide audience of both ordained and lay Buddhists is well documented in this anthology No River to Cross. Her method of teaching is disarmingly simple, yet remarkably profound. She is widely known for her insight into people’s character and her ability to draw on that insight to craft teachings that correspond precisely to the needs of her audience. Seon Master Daehaeng emerges in this collection as one of the most creative and accessible of contemporary Korean Buddhist teachers, who can use even the most mundane of daily events as grist for the mill of Buddhist teaching and practice.

The Chant of Korean Spirituality and Enlightenment

Winner of the 2010 iF Design Award

Chanted every day in Buddhist temples throughout Korea, A Thousand Hands of Compassion integrates all the major aspects of Korean Buddhist thought. Popular with monastics and lay people alike, variations have been recited in Korea for the past 1,300 years. It describes the path of spiritual practice, integrating non-duality, mantras, the desire to save all beings, repentance, and taking refuge. Its truths echo deep within us and arise in our daily life to help guide us. The illustrations by one of Korea’s foremost modern artists, Hyo Rim, contain the fragrance of deep meditation, and will touch readers of all backgrounds.
