The whole universe works together as One Mind.

Daehaeng Kun Sunim established Hanmaum Seon Center (Hanmaum Seonwon) as a place where people could gather together to practice and learn about spiritual cultivation.

Key points are how we can use the stuff of our ordinary life to help us awaken, along with the truth that we are all interconnected, i.e., one mind ("Hanmaum," in Korean). Inherently, all beings share the same life, the same mind, the same body, work together as one, and freely give and receive whatever is needed. When we begin to live in accord with this, everything in our life becomes smoother and the truth becomes clearer.

Daehaeng Kun Sunim

Seon Master Daehaeng (1927-2012) was born in Seoul, South Korea. She awoke to her inherent nature at an early age and spent the decades afterwards applying what she experienced.

After spending many years living alone in the mountains, she spent ten years in Mount Chiak and in the surrounding areas, helping whomever she met. 

Most of the people she encountered were suffering because they didn't know about their inherent Buddha-nature, which is the great energy, ability, and wisdom within themselves. She founded the first Hanmaum Seon Center in 1972. There she spent the next 40 years giving Dharma talks to large and small gatherings, and guiding both ordained and lay disciples.

Headquarters in Anyang, Korea

Hanmaum Seon Center was established in 1972 in Anyang City, South Korea. It has now grown to 15 domestic and 10 overseas branches, with over 150 ordained disciples of Daehaeng Kun Sunim who practice at these centers. Daehaeng Kun Sunim's teachings are also available through the Seon Center's website (,, as well as Youtube.
