Buddhism Now April 1989From this issue:

Son master Chinul

Chinul (1158-1210) was one of Korea’s most important and influential Son (Ch’an) masters. As a young monk he was dis­heartened by the overall worldly attitude of his fellows who were, on the whole, only interested in name and fame. He was also disgusted by the strong sectarian climate of his age. So he and a handful of other monks made a pact that after their training ‘they would go off into the wild, form a Samadhi and Prajna Society, and live in retreat. That actually happened about ten years later.
