"Ten Korean-written masterpieces about modern Buddhism are now available in English.
Korea’s biggest Buddhism order Jogye initiated the project and several Buddhism experts and language specialists joined it. "

“This project will help spread the Korean Buddhist culture to people all over the world,” Yonhap News Agency quoted the chief of the Modern Korea Buddhist Literature Compilation Committee as saying.

McCann translated “Temple of Word: An Anthology of Modern Korean Buddhist Poetry.” Jorgenson translated “The Gyeongheo Collection.”

The other eight books are: “Harmonizing the Hundred Teachings,” “Tracts on the Modern Reformation of Korean Buddhism,” “A Collection of Modern Korean Buddhist Discourses,” “Sheaves of Korean Buddhist History,” “A Study of Korean Pagodas,” “Sun over the Sea of Enlightenment,” “Essential Compendium for Buddhists: A Modern Buddhist Liturgy” and “An Anthology of East Asian Commentaries on the Nyayapravesa.”

PDF files of the translations will soon be available on the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism’s English homepage (www.buddhism.or.kr)."

The first one doesn't seem to be available for download.

If you click on the second one, The Sun over the Sea of Enlightenment, you will see a little disk icon near the top of the page with some Korean text: 각해일륜-본문 최종C판K판.pdf (1.7M)

If you click on the link, you can download the file, but seems to require creating an account first.

Thanks, I just tried this but it pops up with a message in Korean 다운로드 권한이 없습니다 which according to google translate means "You do not have permission to download."

Guess we have to wait before it becomes available here or else where.
