Wanting Enlightenment Is a Big Mistake
( Click Here for Larger View )

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

Wanting Enlightenment Is a Big Mistake is a new book of teachings by one of the greatest Zen Masters to have lived and taught in the West. Zen Master Seung Sahn was known for his powerful teaching style, which was penetrating, surprising, and humorous. He taught that Zen is not about achieving a goal, but about attaining what he called "Don't Know" mind—and helping others.

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. This book will be cherished by serious students of the dharma.

"Zen Master Seung Sahn's teachings will always bring great light into the world. His extraordinary wit, intelligence, courage, and compassion are brought to us in this wonderful and important book. Thousands of students have benefited from his great understanding. Now more will come to know the heart of this rare and profound human being."

—Joan Halifax, Abbot, Upaya Zen Center
