It is often said that shifting perspectives makes all the difference, but it's easier said than done. How can we find a peace of mind even when we are cornered by imminent threats while time and plans are running out?
Cho Hunhyun is one of the greatest Go masters in history, who has been held in respect in not only Korea but also Japan and China. Since he became a professional Go player at the age of nine, he has won 1,935 matches and taken various championship titles as many as 160 times over 56 years, achieving unprecedented record in the world Go history. Now, he gives what he has learned through his life, the essence of how to train our heart and mind.
Go is a strategic board game for two players who take turns placing a white or black stone on the board in order to secure more territory than the opponent. No stone has a specific role to play nor has the board a defined path to follow. The number of cases in which a player can make by putting stones is deemed greater than the number of atoms in our universe, which means that the game requires a huge brainpower and strength to win while resisting tremendous psychological pressure. That's why Go is known as a game of genius and a Go master is respected as a master of life.
This book tells us about his life-long training, which has contributed his amazing achievement in Go. What is his secret? "Victory comes to us when we contemplate with steadfast focus on the essence," the great Go master shows us the way to find inner peace.
He has never stopped training his heart and mind to win games and his attitude toward life gives us an epiphany. Leading a satisfactory life comes down to becoming a true master of our own mind. Contending for victory in life is possible only when we gain control of our heart and become unmoved
