My latest article for Yonhap: Center takes American approach to Korean Buddhism

Yonhap's publication of the article titled Center takes American approach to Korean Buddhism during the celebration of Buddha's birthday seems very apropos despite the passage of time. 

I interviewed Empty Gate Zen's resident abbot Jason Quinn back in August of 2011 to learn more about this Korean Buddhist center planted in Berkeley, CA near one of California's most famous universities, known for its openness to new ideas, both in politics and religion.


Since the original interview last summer, Quinn has now transferred from Empty Gate to the Kwan Um School of Korean Buddhism headquarters in Providence, RI.
