Buddhist monk known as mentor to Ahn to deliver lecture at presidential office
SEOUL, Dec. 12 (Yonhap) -- A Buddhist monk, known for his social activism and considered a "mentor" to potential presidential hopeful Ahn Cheol-soo, will deliver a special lecture at the presidential office this week, officials said Monday.

Ven. Pomnyun, who has long worked as head of a Seoul-based North Korea aid group, has been in the political and media spotlight in recent months after it became known that he is close to Ahn, a public favorite in next year's presidential election. The media calls him a political mentor to Ahn.
