A long time ago in Korea, a famous Sutra Master named Dae Oh Sunim traveled to Hae In Sah Temple lecture on the Hua Yen Sutra. He concluded his week‘s teaching by stating,
"For forty-nine years, the Buddha taught only one word: ‘All things are created by mind alone."
From talk at Seoul International Zen Center, Korea, March 9, 1996
Some people completely understand sutras. A long time ago, a famous old Sutra Master visited Ko Bong Zen Master.
Ko Bong Sunim asked him, “How long have you been teaching the sutras?”
Many students, colleagues and monks around the world mourn the passing of Wu Bong Dae Soen Sa Nim. This situation has occurred once before, in 1994, when Zen Master Su Bong passed away in similar circumstances while leading a retreat in Hong Kong.
