Zen Master Seung Sahn

Zen Master Seung Sahn, the first Korean Zen Master to live and teach in the West, founded the Kwan Um Zen School, an international organization of more than 100 Zen centers worldwide. He was the 78th patriarch in his line of transmission.

Zen Master Seung Sahn passed away in November, 2004, but one of his close American students has assembled this new collection of teachings stories, dialogues, and excerpts from the master's talks, Wanting Enlightenment Is a Big Mistake. This book will be cherished by serious students of the dharma.
