Volume 9: 詩選集 Seon Poems: Selected Works

ByRoderick WhitfiledYoung-Eui Park

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
It has been a most rewarding experience, particularly after visiting many Korean monasteries and absorbing in the course of admittedly brief stays the atmosphere of their buildings, images and the surrounding landscape, and witnessing at first hand the calm concentration and humorous temper of monks practising the dharma, to edit this anthology of poems written (in Chinese) by eminent Korean monks of the Goryeo and Joseon dynasties. I am grateful to the Kasan Buddhist Institute for this opportunity to delve into the experiences of the wandering life as expressed in poetry, to Park Young-eui who provided the initial draft translations into English, and to Lee Jin-oh who has written the historical and literary Introduction.
