Jogye head vows to further globalization of Korean Buddhism

Postby Mr. G » Sun Oct 09, 2011 12:27 pm

Ven. Jaseung, the head of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism, said he will set up a long-term plan to globalize Korean Buddhism at a press conference in Paris, France, Saturday.

"There is no such thing as the real mind. Ridding yourself of delusion: that's the real mind."
(Sheng-yen: Getting the Buddha Mind, p 73)

“Don’t rashly seek the true Buddha;
True Buddha can’t be found.
Does marvelous nature and spirit
Need tempering or refinement?
Mind is this mind carefree;
This face, the face at birth."
