The Son Master T'oeong Sôngch'ol is considered the greatest leading figure of Korean Buddhism in the twentieth century. He has been the dhyàna master of the famous Haein Monastery (Dharma treasure of Korean Buddhism, the place where the Koreana Tripitaka is being stored), from 1967 to 1993. He has also been patriarch of the Chogye Order (by far the largest monastic order of Korea). Songch'ôl has left a huge œuvre (48 volumes). The essentials of his view of Buddhism is expanded in the Conference of the Hundred Suns of the Dharma's Gate, a mastery work in which he reinterprets the whole of Buddhist tradition through the teaching of the Middle Way (zhonggao). In his Sônmun Chôngno (The Right Way of Son), he has completely challenged Son Master Chinul (1158-1210), the figurehead of Songgwang Monastery (the Samgha treasure), whose sudden-gradual approach of enlightenment had dominated the landscape of Korean meditative tradition during the past 800 years. Sôngch'ôl, on the contrary, by darifying enlightenment's concept advocates a radical return to the sudden-sudden approach of the beginnings of the Chan School. By doing so he has redefined Korean Buddhism's identity, linking it to the Yangqi's branch of the Linji school (see Han'guk Pulgyoùi Pommaek [The Lines of Transmission of Korean Buddhism]. Consequently, it is not possible anymore to consider the Korean meditative tradition from the sole chinulian viewpoint. This thesis demonstrates how, after centuries of decay, the necessity for a reform of Korean Buddhism crystallizes in T'oeong Songch'ol
