Abstract:  In July, 1990, six of the senior monks and nuns in the Kwan Um School of Zen engaged in a provocative discussion of monastic life in the United States. The participants were representative of a wide variety of experiences here and overseas, including doing long retreats, teaching, living in Zen centers and monsteries, working the land and operating computers. Excerpts from this "monk's panel" at the summer sangha gathering follow. The panel members were: Do An Sunim, JDPSN, abbot of Providence Zen Center; Do Mun Sunim, abbot of Cambridge Zen Center; Kwang Myong Sunim, abbot of Furnace Mountain in Kentucky; Mu Sang Sunim, director of Dharma Zen Center in Los Angeles; Mu Soeng Sunim, abbot of Diamond Hill Zen Monastery in Cumberland, Rhode Island; and Mu Ryang Sunim, abbot of Dharma Zen Center in Los Angeles. The questions were asked by sangha members
