About This Book
Beop-jeong, a Buddhist monk who thoroughly practices Buddhism's doctrine of non-possession, has written a collection of essays, including one on the value and pleasure of living alone. This publication appears first in five years since his previous essay titled "Letters from a Wooden Hut" was published. In his words, being alone should not be understood as a narrow sense of living alone far away from people. Talking about the true meaning of being alone, the monk quotes a short sentence from Thomas Merton: "You can be together as much as you are alone" because a human cannot feel his whole existence when being with someone. This essay will cast a light on the life of contemporary people who are always busy following his daily schedule. For city dwellers, this one is a must-read.
