Thank you for this. Every time I see Zen Master Seung Sahn's videos, the more I am drawn to him. I love his energy, his playfulness, his warmth, and his precision. Have a nice weekend!

I enjoy his energy, playfulness and warmth too. And he has a great sense of humor. I think humor is a wonderful thing and very helpful. I would hate to be apart of a religious organization that discouraged humor.
Zen is very much about laughing at ourselves and letting go of being serious all the time.

Has Master Seun Sahn written any books and if so what would you recommend?

Thank you, Alice, for your comment. Seung Sahn Sunim was a remarkable man - he lived only for helping others awaken to true nature.
Hi James - Yes, Zen Master Seung Sahn loved to laugh, although he could also be very direct, almost harsh. He brought great intensity to everything.
I think I'll post next week on his books - there are several - so that more folks can have access to his work. Good idea!
