entering the dining room the abbot looks me in the eye and points to the seat next to him. how auspicious, how humbling seated with Dak Chun, Maha Ghosananda, Wu Kwang Soen Sa, Dae Kwang Soen Sa. the abbot Dak Chun is the perfect host attentive to all our needs Filling my bowl with food over and over and over I begin to wonder how to tell him I am full without offending him. Maha Ghosananda hold his hands with palms together “enough!” yes, of course it’s that simple the tea is refreshing as we wash our bowls. October 6, 1996 Un Mun Sa, P.R.C.
