SeekingMoreWon Buddhism emerged in early twentieth-century Korea after a long period of anti-Buddhist repression. It is a syncretic tradition, a form of Buddhism strongly influenced by the Ch son dynasty s Neo-Confucian ethical heritage and by Daoism. Seeking to deliver sentient beings from suffering and to create a just and ethical world, Won Buddhism stresses practical application of the dharma and service.

It offers a vision of people as one family, morally perfected.This book provides the first English translations of the writings of Ch ngsan (1900 62), the second dharma master of Won Buddhism, who codified the new religion s central doctrines. The translations here include Ch ngsan s discussion of Buddha-nature, described as a mind-seal and symbolized by the Irw nsang (a unitary circle)- his synthesis of Confucian moral and political programs with Buddhist notions of emancipation from birth and death- and his expositions on realizing the ideal of all people as one family.
