Chapter 4 discusses Iryŏp’s encounter with Buddhism, which took place around 1927, and Iryŏp’s journey from activism to a leading Buddhist thinker. During this period, Iryŏp met two people in particular who either motivated her to become interested in Buddhism or who helped her to study Buddhism. The first person was Paek Sŏnguk (1897–1981), the president of the Buddhist Newspaper Company; the other was Ha Yunsil, a non-celibate monk who was also involved with the journal Buddhism. She became romantically involved with Paek and married Ha Yunsil. The chapter also includes a brief discussion of hwadu mediation that Iryŏp practice as a Zen Buddhist nun.

Keywords:   Korea, Kim Iryŏp, Paek Sŏnguk, hwadu meditation, modern Korean Buddhism, Kyŏnghŏ Sŏngu
