We are very sad to share that one of our Chan Order leading figures just entered emptiness.
Da Shi ChuanSheng, Steven Baugh, was a wonderful master with several lives: kung-fu master, Buddhist teacher in several traditions, a family man… a wonderful man who was always available for answering our questions or take some time for a student or a friend, an example for all of us.
He was my main transmission master (Senior Dharma Teacher) in the Linji lineage, along master Chuan Yuan and master YinDin. And he was a close disciple of our two founders, master JyDin Shakya and Ming Zhen Shakya.
Deep bows DaShi!
Please recite hundreds or thousands of mantras of OM MANI PADME HUNG for Dashi, show him your love and compassion as he moves onto his next existence
