Hwansan Sunim, who has been practicing Seon meditation for 25 years

Hwansan Sunim, the disciple and personal attendant of the most venerated Seon master Songdam Sunim, has spent the past 25 years practicing Seon meditation. Now, following his teacher's orders, he is teaching people the principles and proper method of Seon meditation in English via various media outlets.

Born to an affluent family in New York in 1965, Hwansan Sunim was on a guaranteed path to success and prosperity, having graduated from Harvard with a degree in Comparative Study of Religion. But faced with persistent existential and spiritual questions, he decided to seek answers by visiting Seon master Songdam Sunim at the Yonghwasa Temple in Incheon. After staying at the temple for 2 years, he returned home and began working for a law firm. But it wasn't long until he decided to come back to Korea and join the monastic order in 1990. He has been studying under Songdam Sunim for 25 years and serving him as his personal attendant for 12 years. Last year, under the instructions of his master, he ended the life of recluse to pass on the teachings of Seon Buddhism in ways that are applicable in modern society.

Tune into The INNERview as Hwansan Sunim joins us to pass on the wisdom of the Buddha, share the importance of "emptying" oneself and teach us the proper method of Seon meditation, which offers benefits beyond what are commonly emphasized.
