Reflections of a Zen Buddhist Nun

Kim Iryŏp

, Jin Y. Park
University of Hawai'i Press

In this chapter, Kim Iryŏp talks about her twenty-fifth year as a Buddhist nun and what she accomplished during that span of time. Iryŏp reflects on how she came to join the monastery and how she learned her practice from Man'gong. She claims that her conversion to Buddhism gave her a deep, heartfelt desire to spread the teachings of Buddhism, which were profound and insightful and to which Christianity was not even comparable. By joining the monastery, Iryŏp says she found proper teaching and reached the starting point of a path leading directly to discovery of herself and a life as a human being.
