Zen Master Man Gong (1872-1946) received transmissions from Zen Master Kyong Ho, and is a towering figure in modern Korean Zen. He was a pioneer in teaching Zen Buddhism to laypeople, and played a central role in re-establishing the Buddhist tradition in Korea after centuries of suppression during the Chosun dynasty. Zen Master Man Gong was the grand teacher of Zen Master Seung Sahn (1927-2004), the founder of the international Kwan Um School of Zen.
In keeping with the Zen tradition, the exchanges between Man Gong and his students have exercised considerable influence on Zen students as teaching vehicles.
