hi... practice the zen way extensivly and my life changed dramatically.

i decided to become a monk for some years.

my teacher came from korean zen, student of zen master sung shan. i would go to that monastery but he is no longer alive.
so i would like to know what zen monasteries you can sugest me to try? all over asia, i am open, but i need to start my journey from somewhere. any masters you heard of? maybe ones who teach foreingerns?

any help would be more then welcomed :) thank you!

Do you mean Seung Sahn or another master? If another master do you know the lineage?
