Bobby Rhodes was elected the Guiding Teacher of Seung Sahn’s International Kwan Um School after his death.
“Zen,” she told me, “helps us to be clear and compassionate and wise and move in the right direction”
“What does that mean?” I asked
“It means be yourself, be your true self.”
“How does it accomplish that?”
“By helping you drop your tethers, your karmic hindrances and waking up to your true self.”
