A " must read " for me.

I just read a two page article in my Saturday newspaper written by one Haemin Sunim ( a Zen monk apparently ) entitled " the secret of happiness ", an excerpt from the book. Yeah I know, they only show the really good bits, they are, after all, trying to sell the book and very few of us would dare to totally adopt such a lifestyle but there is much to consider and maybe take from what he says. Anyway, we shall see eh?
