Sarasota Center of Light welcomes Buddhist Monk and Zen Master Chong An Sunim to the United States. This international teacher and Zen Master will be sharing his wisdom and experience during a dharma talk titled “Who are we? – Experiencing Our True Nature with Zen Meditation”. This will be an in-depth and inspiring insight into Zen, Zen Meditaion and the powerful effect it has on Spiritual awakening and inner knowing. The evening will include discussion, conversation and questions and answers. A Love Offering will benefit his temple in Hungary.
Chong An Sunim entered the dharma in 1990, became a monk in 1994 and then came to Korea, where he studied at Hwagyesa under the guidance of Zen Master Seung Sahn. In 2000, he began his teaching career in Europe, then later in Asia and the USA.
Today he is the Abbot of Won Kwang Sa temple, in Hungary, which is placed within five hectares of beautiful forest land in the Pilis Mountains. The temple offers retreats and courses for Zen training that is both traditionally Korean and distinctly Western. He received full Dharma Transmission on May 9th, 2017 from Seol Jong Sunim, thus becoming the first Zen Master of western origin in the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism.
The quality of life depends not on external development or material progress,
but the inner development of peace and happiness
