In the Footsteps of Wonhyo: Sacred Sites in Korea

Postby Tenjiku on Fri Jan 04, 2013 1:00 am

During the last year, a number of Buddhists made a 500 km pilgrimage across Korea, following the footsteps of Wonhyo, the famous Korean Buddhist teacher and scholar. A documentary is currently being made about the pilgrimage, with a tentative release date on Buddha's Birthday (in April), 2013.

Here is a link to the blog, documenting their travels and with information about the release of the film:

I would also like to link to the work of David Mason, a longtime scholar of Korea's sacred mountains and one of the pilgrams who organized the
"Wonhyo trail".

http://san-shin.org/

In addition to a wealth of information, his website has a lot of beautiful images of mountains, temples and hermitages, both in the Buddhist tradition and also in the older traditions of Daoism and Korean Shamanism (Mugyo/Shingyo). In many Korean Buddhist temples it is still common to see images of sanshin, the mountain spirit.

This looks wonderful. Thanks for posting the links.
Practitioners who cultivate the personal realization of buddha knowledge dwell in the bliss of whatever is present and do not abandon their practice.
