Jeongbin Kim’s most recent novel, Six Months with Buddha(Soseolgyong, as it is pronounced in Korean) is the fruition of his life-long study and practice of Buddhism. It tells the story of a young Indian couple, Raja and Sirima, and their journey to become Buddha’s followers. Written in a simple and engaging style, the book embeds the philosophy and principles of Buddhism into fiction. In writing Six Months with Buddha, Kim was inspired by famous Christian literature masterpieces such as Dante’s The Divine Comedy and Goethe’sFaust. More than just a simple recollection of Buddhist principles or a practical guide, Six Months with Buddha is designed to mark the start of a new breed of Buddhist fiction that follows in the footsteps of these greats.
