Tathagata's Background

Master Tathagata was born Lee Sam-Han, in South Korea on February 21st 1942. His father was a poor farmer, and the family did not own any land or means to make much of a living. His father died when he was one, and he was orphaned at nine when his mother passed away. At the age of twelve, he left for the city, and from then on, he looked after himself without the help of others.

At the age of twenty-four, Lee Sam-Han entered politics but was unsuccessful in running for a seat in the National Assembly. He married at thirty-three, and five years later, tried running for a seat again with the support of his friends and associates. South Korea in those times was under an autocratic militaristic regime. He failed, but his brilliant leadership and eloquence, coupled with his outspoken views against the authorities, did not go unnoticed. He was put under surveillance and subjected to persecution from the ruling elite.

At the age of thirty-nine, Lee Sam-Han cleared off his own business, ceased all political and social activities, and spent the next six years as a private citizen. In 1984, at the age of forty-four, he achieved a state of understanding which he knew as Enlightenment, and took the name of Tathagata.
