I got this book through a recommendation of a close friend. When I saw the cover page of book where many people are riding in a ship, it made me wonder, are there people really going to the eternal land of happiness?
As I continue to read this book, I thought “it’s easy and fun.” I thought the book would have a complicated content, based on the title; but it explained human mind simply without any complexity. I was impressed by Woo Myung’s explanations that a human being does not live in the real world, but lives within own mind world; and that now, he could live eternally happy by escaping the mind.
It seems like this book could clearly answer and solve the typical questions one tend to have as he lives his life, such as where does a man come from and where does he go?
When I first saw this book, it felt different from other books. The title was amazing. Some may even say the title is rather arrogant. The meaning of the title is astonishing, but the tone at first was more of urging; after reading the book, I felt a sense of persuasion. The calligraphic lettering in the cover page was unique and hard to decipher without the separate title being written. It was huge shock just by the title and calligraphy. Inside the book, the foreword also contained a remarkable content. As I headed home after reading the foreword, I was deep in thought. The fact that I eat, sleep and work, is this the true reason and purpose of being born as a human being? Even those who have succeeded in life seemed in vain when you consider the message of the book. Whether one is Bill Gates, Warren Buffet or a bum on the street – sleeping, awaking with eyes open, eating, living and running around- when one dies, is that the end? I felt the futility of life and it felt like falling into a bottomless pit. When reading, the author emphasizes one thing continuously. Through different expressions, one point is emphasized repeatedly. As the title of the book, it focused on the method to live in the eternal land of happiness. This was expressed simply but logically. Whereas many intellectual books are written in their own typical grammatical fashion mixed with self-boasting, which make readers feel inferior, this book is written in easy words so anyone can read. I like this feature. The author is convincing all to read this book to enter into the land of happiness and to live forever. Anyone who read this book correctly would also know well what needs to be done. Joo-hyun Kim/College student/Busan
‘Forever’ and ‘Happiness’ are words that were always yearned for, in unrealistic stories in children’s books. But, this book is talking about true reality, that one can find the everlasting true mind and live forever happily! The words seemed not decorated or made up; I like the truthfulness of the words. Imprinted pictures of self-centered thoughts and concepts in my own mind world ? this world I live now is not true. These are truly very logical words. It was a little hard to understand at first, but as I continue to read, it’s interesting and fun – so I keep reading and reading it. Hea-young Kim/Housewife/Choong-nam
World Beyond World is the first book that gives mankind the method to becoming True Self, which is the original state of mind. Woo Myung explains that our individual mind makes the separation from oneness of the world. Also, he says that individual mind has been formed throughout life experiences and stored as images and has been accumulated and descended in our body from our ancestors. He states that in order to return to the original mind, Truth, and in order to become one from this separated world, our individual minds must be cleansed. Then, this world can live peacefully as one without separation from each other. There are many books that describe what Truth is but this is the first book to give us a step-by-step method to attaining eternal life, which fulfills the purpose of our lives. Reading this book will give you answers to many questions such as: Where did we come from? Why are we here? and Where do we go? Woo Myung explains that now is the time for human completion because now is the first time we are given the precise method to become a perfect man. Mi-young Jung / Boston, MA
Even though I am living a secured life socially, it seemed like an empty shell. How long must I live in this stress. The life lived in my job, my family, the regrets of my past and the fear about my future…..I read this book wanting to escape all these. But this book was not about running from something. It states that what I thought as reality were pictures and when I escape them, there is an eternal land of happiness. All stress is from my mind; I think I could escape from all these stress.

Since I was young, I had many questions. Especially about the existence of world, I always had questions. It seemed definitely that the world and I exist, but how did it all begin? How does this world exist? And going forward, would the world still continue to exist? With continuing of time, if the earth disappears, what would happen then? Through this book, I gained my answers. The author wrote very simply and clearly. More I read, it was confirmed 100%. Nowhere before, it was explained this way. The world and I came from bon-ba-dak and return to bon-ba-dak. That the bon-ba-dak is the everlasting, living Truth. Because I am living in my own mind world, I am unable to live in the real world, which means that I am dead. All of those heros and saints were also gone…. But after reading the book, my sense of futility disappeared. This book informed me of a method to not only know Truth, but also to become one with Truth. This life was not life where one disappears after death. I now have become hopeful. Min-jung Kang/Corporate staff/Seoul
World Beyond World is a book that every intellectual should read. It is a book that offers no parallel understanding of human destiny. This book will answer many of the fundamental questions that humans have carried unsolved, such as what is Truth? Is there such thing as Heaven? I am thankful to the author for providing me such clear understanding of God, Mankind, and Truth. I recommend this book for anyone to read, really. Haeryone
It’s amazing. For me who used to only analyze the world, this book has become my hope; the life philosophy I had held could be changed much or in its entirety. This is wonderful since my perspectives on life had become tragic and boring. It is becoming a huge hope. But I am not understanding fully when reading it once or twice; sometimes I have to read a page or two for two days. Maybe it’s because I am a perfectionist. It’s great to read for my own hope and I am thankful for this book which is already worth the investment of about 10 dollars price. Sang-gu Song/Housewife/Kyungi Buchun
