Buddhist Society for Compassionate Action

Post by Khalil Bodhi » Sun Mar 18, 2012 4:36 pm

Hi Everyone,

Don't normally post here but I have a question for any of you who might know. I've been looking into chaplaincy here in NYC and it appears that all of the groups that do so are Zen or Seon. Has any heard of Samu Sunim's Buddhist Society for Compassionate Action? I am interested in this group and am considering joining it in some capacity (either as a Dharma Guardian or priest) in order to pursue chaplaincy and spiritual counseling but would like to know more. Metta.

Buddhist Society for Compassionate Wisdom is the name. Why not visit the place? You can get a better idea with personal contact.
It is not a matter of achieving Bodhi or attaining Buddhahood. Rather, you yourself become aware that your own mind has always been fully enlightened.
