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.

His visit is part of efforts to publicize the religion around the world through various religious activities and events.

“I admit Korean Buddhism has been focused on settling internal struggles within the orders over the last 10 to 20 years and consequently unable to look forward to the future,” he said, noting the order’s lack of activity to globalize the religion.

1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

4 With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.
