What kind of being is a human, and for what do they live? What type of a planet is the Earth, and how was the Universe created? What is true freedom, and how can we attain it? What is Enlightenment, and what changes if we get enlightened?
Although these are the questions of life, they are not easy to answer. This book contains the essence of the meaning of life and how to live a life, which the author became enlightened about through meditation practice. It unravels the convoluted themes in an easy way to understand by also introducing you concrete meditation methods you can easily try.
These are cited from the book:
- Discover what you truly want. If you establish your will firmly, all creations of the Universe wrap supporting energy around you. Therefore, you will gain power. If you don’t gain power, that is because your goal is not clear.
- Evolution basically means “knowing.” It is to know about yourself, about god, about nature as well as about birth-aging-illness-death. Once you realize these, once you know the direction which the Universe is headed for, you will then evolve.
- Why did the Creator make human beings to be imperfect? Why did He make human beings like this and have them feel pain, grief and sorrow? How did He make human beings and how much did He involve Himself?
- The Purpose of the Universe’s creation is evolution, and the Earth is the planet which was created as a training center. The purpose of human beings born on this planet is only evolution through experience. Likewise, if you can become well-aware that the Earth is a school and that people are born to earn lessons, you will be pleased by all the affairs happening to you because they are teaching materials that make you profound by presenting you with experiences.
About the Author
Suroso Mun is one of the major spiritual teachers of our time. Her students are training through her teachings all around the world.
She was born in the middle of the Korean War. Though her living was materially poor in the aftermath of the war, she spent an intellectually rich childhood with her three sisters and her mother, a former school teacher. After graduating from one of the prestigious universities in Korea, she had developed a very successful career at the Korean National Assembly and Red Cross.
In her late thirties, at the pinnacle of life, she suddenly stopped everything she
was doing and got into meditation. She became fascinated by danjeon breathing which she happened to begin by chance. After a while, she met her teacher-in-spirit and inherited the lineage of Seongye Practice (meditation training). She went on a thousand-day abstinence training, eventually meeting the Original Nature, and attaining Ultimate Enlightenment.
When her first book came out in Korea, The Seon way to Enlightenment, many who read this book asked her to guide them. That’s how she started guiding the training. Since then, the number of people in the voluntary training group has increased every year, and now it has grown to establish Suseonjae, the Meditation School. It has global centers in countries such as Korea, the US, China, and South Africa. Suseonjae is a meditation center where one can learn different levels of meditation courses from easy and popular meditations up to the level of Enlightenment, and it contributes in teaching how to control the mind and develop the spirituality of contemporary people who are passing through a difficult lifetime.
