Nov. James Kwanjin Gibbs


Nov. James Kwanjin Gibbs  (HJN: Haengjanim)  
Novitiate James Kwanjin Gibbs is an ordained Novice Priest in the Five Mountain Order. Nov. Kwanjin discovered Buddhism in about 1959, while a senior in high school. He read the Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac and thenThe Way of Zen by Alan Watts. In the ensuring years, he read everything he could get his hands on about Zen Buddhism. Kwanjin learned to sit in the full lotus position and he considers this to be his greatest achievement in the first twenty years or so of his life. This is a beautiful video and song from his heart about War and Peace, I hope you enjoy..
