about this book

The power and simplicity of the Korean Zen tradition shine in this collection of teachings by a renowned modern master. Kusan Sunim (1901–1983) provides a wealth of practical advice for students, particularly with regard to the uniquely Korean practice of hwadu, or sitting with questioning. An extensive introduction by Stephen Batchelor, author of Buddhism without Beliefs, provides both a biography of the author and a brief history of Korean Zen.
