I have invested some time again in understanding Zen teachings. I have long been thinking about the teachers I have met in Munich and was confused.
The teacher that I found to be the most sound and in some way integral is Hyon Gak Sunim.
I have both personally practiced with him a few times in Munich before leaving to Hong Kong and will do that again in the future when he is back from his current retreat.
I was often confused by some Zen teachers and teachings, because they all seemed to contradict them in a number of ways. They lacked the aesthetics of a mathematical theory that is consistent. He is the first guy, where I had a better feeling. I’ll find out, if that feeling stays.
If you’re interested in Zen also, make up your mind. A good way is to start with some of his talks and interviews.
