The compass of Zen = [Chʻan lo chen pʻan] by Sungsan Tae Sŏnsa( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Compass of Zen is a simple, exhaustive-and often hilarious-presentation of the essence of Zen by a modern Zen Master of considerable renown. In his many years of teaching throughout the world, the Korean-born Zen Master Seung Sahn has become known for his ability to cut to the heart of Buddhist teaching in a way that is strikingly clear, yet free of esoteric and academic language. In this book, based largely on his talks, he presents the basic teachings of Buddhism and Zen in a way that is wonderfully accessible for beginners-yet so rich with stories, insights, and personal experiences that long-time meditation students will also find it a source of inspiration and a resource for study
Only don't know : selected teaching letters of Zen master Seung Sahn by Sungsan Tae Sŏnsa( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the inimitable Zen Master Seung Sahn up close and personal-in selections from the correspondence that was one of his primary modes of teaching. Seung Sahn received hundreds of letters per month, each of which he answered personally, and some of the best of which are included here. His frank and funny style, familiar to readers of Dropping Ashes on the Buddha, is seen here in a most intimate form. The beloved Zen master not only answers questions on Zen teaching and practice, but applies an enlightened approach to problems with work, relationships, suffering, and the teacher-student relationship

Puch'ŏnim kke chae rŭl t'ŏlmyŏn by Stephen Mitchell( Book )

5 editions published between 1976 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

?Somebody comes into the Zen center with a lighted cigarette, walks up to the Buddha statue, blows smoke in its face, and drops ashes on its lap. You are standing there. What can you do?” This is a problem that Zen Master Seung Sahn is fond of posing to his American students who attend his Zen centers. Dropping Ashes on the Buddha is a delightful, irreverent, and often hilariously funny living record of the dialogue between Korean Zen Master Seung Sahn and his American students. Consisting of dialogues, stories, formal Zen interviews, Dharma speeches, and letters using the Zen Master?s actual words in spontaneous, living interaction with his students, this book is a fresh presentation of the Zen teaching method of ?instant dialogue” between Master and student which, through the use of astonishment and paradox, leads to an understanding of ultimate reality
