Pomnyun is a Korean Buddhist monk and a Seon master renowned as an author, a Dharma teacher, and for his humanitarian work. He is also a social activist, leading various movements, such as ecological awareness campaigns and the promotion of human rights, as well as working toward world peace and the eradication of famine, disease, and illiteracy.
He is the headmaster of the Jungto Society Korea, an organization dedicated to a life of sharing and simple, sustainable living, informed by Buddhist teachings, environmental outreach, and supporting peace in Korea and around the world.

Rather than living in quiet contemplation, he has taken on an unlikely role for a Buddhist monk, focusing on his aim to bring peace, reconciliation, and eventually unity between the two Koreas by establishing the Peace Foundation to engage experts in analyzing how best to bring about peace between the two Koreas and between North Korea and the United States, as well as bringing together Buddhists and Christians in dialogue on the subject of world peace.
He also established Good Friends for Peace, Human Rights, and Refugee Issues, an organization that has been instrumental in his quest for peace in North Korea.
