Buddha’s Dharma,

Awakens us to our True Self so we can become Buddha.

Buddhism is the teaching of Buddha. The teaching which shows us how to become Buddha.
And it is simply awakening to our genuine self. It is allowing our inherent wisdom to bloom like a flower, countless of flowers- blooming in the paradise of Nirvana.


Dharma Talk : The Songs of Zen

July 24, 2016 (sun)

The grand book, The Songs of Zen, contains all of the historical Kong-An’s, as well as commentaries from past Masters. Originally compiled by the Chinese Zen Master Xuedou Zhongxian but completed by the Korean National Master JinGak in the 13th century. Even if one is enlightened, many of these Kong-an’s are still so difficult that no one has attempted to comment on all of the Kong-An’s until now. Zen Master DaeWon has compiled this book in its entirety and added his own comments to the historical ones in the book.
