Woo Myung’s book was also Top Rated #1 in both Philosophy and Happiness.

"Stop Living In This Land, Go To The Everlasting World Of Happiness, Live There Forever" is a book that has moved people’s hearts. Why does it resonate with so many people?
In recent times, an ever-increasing number of people suffer from depression and anxiety in their daily lives. Living in an age where the material world has reached its peak, people are now searching to fill the inner void which cannot be filled by material things.
The rising demand from consumers in this modern day for self-help, yoga/meditation, traveling and getaways from the stresses and burdens of everyday life can be a testament of that inner void.
However, because the search for true peace of mind seems to have failed and there was no definite answer, humanity had reached a standstill.
Now, the time for a fundamental universal solution has come. "Stop Living In This Land, Go To The Everlasting World Of Happiness, Live There Forever" explains the reason of human existence and the reason why we are born into this world, the fundamental principle of the world and recovery of the true self.
Woo Myung writes in his latest book, “Until now, it was the age of incompletion; an age of continuously adding to one’s mind. In the age of completion, man must subtract what is in his mind, and the more he subtracts, the more he will come to know. This is enlightenment…And if he continues to subtract in this fashion, he will reach completion.”
The original version in Korean for this book was first published in South Korea in June 2011 and hit #2 on Kyobo Book Center’s Bestselling List and secured the #1 Bestseller spot in Humanities for 14 consecutive weeks. Woo Myung’s book also ranked as the #1 Bestseller in Philosophy on Aladin, a major South Korean online bookstore.
The English version is published by Cham books who also publishes Wisdom's webzine.
In addition to the English version, this book has also been translated into Spanish, Japanese, French, and Chinese and is currently being translated into Swedish, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Hungarian. All books by Woo Myung are about the Truth, the mind, and the method and philosophy of Maum Meditation. Five of his 10 published books have become bestsellers in South Korea.
