    I am leaving this message in hopes of finding a nun. I don’t know her Dharma name but her name was Stephanie before she became a Buddhist nun. She is a Korean by birth but she was adapted by American Parents. I met her when she was visiting Sambosa, a Korean Buddhist temple in Carmel, CA, about 3 years ago. I am desperately looking to reconnect with her. I have some information that she has been seeking. Please help.

  6. Must be the moment…mesmerized by this: “I have almost no self-confidence, but I have total confidence in my non-self elements; clearly I do because I haven’t been the least bit anxious, and so I think I am experiencing non-self confidence.” Where can I find more about the non-self (besides in myself) ;-)

    Peace is the only credible lasting option and with every passing day we get just a little closer. Our biggest obstacle to peace is a lack of understanding. Once we both sides of a disagreement understand each other, peace is obtainable.

    What a peaceful looking Master! His appearance proves that he has developed compassion to the maximum level. Yes, we have to reduce, delete anger for us to gain more compassion. Thank you.

  9. There are no words of justice and injustice if we can give unconditional love to all. Because judgement and criticism are not necessary in order to separate oneself and others. If oneself is accepted unconditionally, oneself can accept oneself and others unconditionally at the same time.

    Source of stress is human ego. If friction occurs between your ego and someone’s ego, stress occurs. Therefore, if either of you release your own ego, stress does not occur. In other words, if you release your own ego, stress will never occur between you and any counterparts. That’s because we can accept any counterparts in spite of their attitudes if we can accept just the way we are.

    If you release your ego, stress will never occur between any counterparts. However, problems won’t be solved if your counterparts don’t release their ego. Problems will be solved only if both sides release own ego.

    What we need is unconditional acceptance of all. We must not separate ourselves with others because we are interdependent.
