The first English translations of the writings of Chongsan (1900–:62), who codified the central doctrines of Won Buddhism. Won 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 Choson 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 Chongsan (1900–:62), the second dharma master of Won Buddhism, who codified the new religion’:s central doctrines. The translations here include Chongsan’:s discussion of Buddha-nature, described as a mind-seal and symbolized by the Irwonsang (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. “:Chung’:s book is an important addition to the small existing oeuvre on the Won Buddhist tradition of Korea. This is an elegant, accessible, and carefully annotated translation of a seminal work.”: —: Robert Buswell, editor of Religions of Korea in Practice Bongkil Chung is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Florida International University. His books include The Scriptures of Won Buddhism: A Translation of the Wonbulgyo Kyojon with Introduction and An Introduction to Won Buddhism.
