Chinu : What has just asked me this question is precisely your mind of void and calm, numinous awareness. Why don’t you trace back its radiance rather than looking for it outside? For the benefit of people like you, I will now point straight to your original mind so that you can awaken. You should clear your minds and listen to my words.

Yesterday I came across an old graveyard that I used to visit as a kid. I hadn't been there in at least 10 years. It was late and empty, so I decided to climb over the gate and sneak in.

Meditating there was a tremendously peaceful experience. It felt like the last place on earth anybody would ever think to harm me and I felt as safe as I'd only ever felt as a kid, it was quite a relief.

Numinous Awareness Is Never Dark: The Korean Buddhist Master Chinul's Excerpts on Zen Practice (Korean Classics Library: Philosophy and Religion) [Robert E. Buswell ...

Numinous Awareness is Never Dark by Robert E. Buswell, 9780824867393, available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.

Excerpts , translated here in its entirety by the preeminent Western specialist in the Korean Buddhist tradition, goes on to examine Chinul’s treatments of many of the quintessential practices of Zen Buddhism, including nonconceptualization, or no-thought, and the concurrent development of meditation and wisdom, as well as, for the first time in Korean Zen, “examining meditative topics”  (kanhwa Sŏn)— what we in the West know better as kōans, after its later Japanese analogues. Fitting this new technique into his preferred soteriological schema of sudden awakening/gradual cultivation was no simple task for Chinul.

Numinous Awareness Is Never Dark  offers an extensive study of the contours of the sudden/gradual debate in Buddhist thought and practice and traces the influence of Chinul’s analysis of this issue throughout the history of the Korean tradition. Copiously annotated, the work contains extensive selections from the two traditional Korean commentaries to the text. In Buswell’s treatment, Chinul’s  Excerpts  emerges as the single most influential work written by a Korean Buddhist author.

Robert E. Buswell, Jr.  holds the Irving and Jean Stone Endowed Chair in Humanities at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where he is also Distinguished Professor of Buddhist Studies in the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures and founding director of the university’s Center for Buddhist Studies and Center for Korean Studies.

The word numinous comes from the Latin numen, meaning something that inspires awe and reverence, reflecting an encounter with a holy or transcendent presence.

“The meaning of awe is to realize that life takes place under wide horizons, horizons that range beyond the span of an individual life or even the life of a nation, a generation, or an era. Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and the simple; to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.”

One way to explore the relationship between an experience of awe and the numinous is to consider those moments when we perceive a tangible living presence much larger than ourselves.  For me, this  occurs while beholding the majesty of the natural world and during moments of prayer, meditation or intense creative activity, when I sense my own smallness while experiencing a grandeur that takes my breath away.
