About the Author

Daehaeng Sunim has emerged as one of the most creative and accessible of contemporary Korean Buddhist teachers. Her disciples, quite unusually, also include a number of monks-something unheard of previously in a patriarchal monastic tradition. The organization she founded over three decades ago, the Hanmaum Seonwon, has emerged as one of the most influential Korean Buddhist institutions today, with over fifteen domestic branches and ten overseas centers.


"Daehaeng Kun Sunim emerges in this collection as one of the most creative and accessible of contemporary Korean Buddhist teachers, capable of using even the most mundane of daily events as grist for the mill of Buddhist teaching and practice."--Robert Buswell, Director of the Center for Buddhist Studies, UCLA, from his Foreword
"No River to Cross speaks directly and simply from the heart, much in the manner of Shunryu Suzuki's Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind. Master Daehaeng's ability to penetrate the skin with plain and pointed words should give this work the same longevity."--Francisca Cho, Georgetown University, translator of Everything Yearned For
"No River to Cross gives us a strong voice, at times astonishingly direct; a balance of clear explanations of the complex terms and concepts of Buddhist practice with precise, perfectly chosen, illuminating examples; and a striking relevance for today's world in Daehaeng Sunim's reflections, among other topics, on creation, evolution, and religious conflict."--David McCann, recipient of the Manhae Prize for Arts and Sciences, and Director of the Korea Institute at Harvard University
