New Dharma talk by Daehaeng Kun Sunim

Here’s a short Dharma talk from Daehaeng Kun Sunim that appeared in the last issue of Hanmaum Journal.

What are you going to believe in?
Buddha’s shape? Perhaps his renown?
No. Know that his mind and your mind are not two.


These bodies of ours have so many limitations,
and will eventually fall apart.
Mine, just as well as yours.
It’s this non-dual mind.
This non-dual mind where you and I are not two.
This mind never decays.

부처님 형상을 믿겠습니까, 이름을 믿겠습니까?
부처님 마음을 내 마음과 둘 아니게 믿으라고 한 거지,
형상은 언젠가는 부서지고 한계가 있는 겁니다.
그러기 때문에 네 형상이나 내 형상이나 둘이 아니고,
부서지는 건 다 똑같다 이거예요.
그러나 부서지지 않는 게 한 가지 있는데
그것은 네 마음이나 내 마음이나 둘이 아닌
그 마음이 바로 부서지지 않는 것이다는 얘기죠.
