FINDING THE TRUE SELF
“Master Jinje uses words of teaching, verse, and art as aids to reveal the possibility of penetrating and understanding full knowledge in a moment.” —Lewis Lancaster, Chen Professor Emeritus of Buddhist Studies, University of California, Berkeley
200 pages, 8.9 x 7 x 0.7 inches
Through Dharma talks, Q&A, essays on practice, and conversations with leading scholars, Master Jinje speaks with urgency and compassion about the central work of his life: finding one's true self. In a style at once encouraging and uncompromising, he shares his stories and stories of past masters, revealing again and again that realization is possible.
We cannot but question whether or not we are ready to embark on this arduous journey. Most vitally important for us to walk this path is having the correct attitude. Infinitely deep faith and ferocious courage reaching the sky are the keys. If you possess these qualities, attaining enlightenment is as easy as touching your nose while washing this face.
