About the show
The Five Mountain Zen Order is the Monastery without walls and consists of members who are living in the world with helping hands. The Five Mountain Zen Order is a religious organization of peers whose members are leaders of Zen Communities in the lineage of Korean Zen Master Seung Sahn. The purpose of the organization is the exchange of information relating to the educational, religious and administrative programs of Five Mountain Zen communities.
there has been no talk or comment about the merging of the Vietnamese Order with that of Korean Zen Master Seung Sahn. For such an event to be real and authentic, he would have to be there or a Representative just as the Dharma Heir had brought 6 monks for it to be right in line with the Vinaya Rules, however….where is the Korean approval and representatives at this Grand Ordination is what it is really called, a historical event. Nothing from the Korean side as to this day. We won`t talk about what the Korean tradition thinks of all the name changing and in many`s eyes disrespect toward the Korean side Paul so proudly represented. It`s become a free for all, it`s crazy! Lets hear from the Korean Zen Master Seung Sahn side of what they think of all this now that they are part of another tradition as well if Paul is what he says he is. I don`t think they are with this move, in fact, i`d bet my life on it. Let`s hear from the Korean`s on this back stabbing it looks to me. Paul done flip the scrip on them it looks to me. i think the world has a right to hear the Korean`s side if they approved this or not, because not one of them was there. That seems to funny to believe?
