~기는 & ~긴 Disagreeing | Live Class Abridged

Thu, 2024-04-25 01:02

~기는 (commonly shortened to ~긴) is from the ~기 nominalization form and the Topic Marker 는 (기 + 는) and has several uses, one of which is when disagreeing with someone else. It's also used when admitting something to someone, but not completely. I explain all of its major uses in this live stream.

Note that this is the last live classroom until I return from Korea at the end of July. I hope to do a regular live stream while I'm there, as well as possibly another fan meetup in Seoul, so look forward to some more upcoming announcements soon!

Unheungsa Temple – 운흥사 (Goseong, Gyeongsangnam-do)

Wed, 2024-04-24 23:08
Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife) at Unheungsa Temple in Goseong, Gyeongsangnam-do. Temple History

Unheungsa Temple is situated up a long valley between Mt. Bongamsan (434.6 m) and Mt. Baekamsan (403 m) to the far west of Goseong, Gyeongsangnam-do. Unheungsa Temple was first constructed in 676 A.D. by the famed monk Uisang-daesa (625-702 A.D.). Little is known about the temple until it was used to raise an army of some 6,000 warrior monks during the Imjin War (1592-98) and led by Samyeong-daesa (1544-1610). A large portion of the temple was destroyed at this time. It wasn’t until 1651 that the temple was partially rebuilt. The current Daeung-jeon Hall and Yeongsan-jeon Hall were reconstructed in 1731.

Additionally, there was a bronze bell at Unheungsa Temple that was first made in 1690. However, during Japanese Colonial Rule (1910-45), it was smuggled off to Japan.

Unheungsa Temple has two hermitages directly associated with it. They are Seodokam Hermitage and Cheonjinam Hermitage. It’s believed that Cheonjinam Hermitage was first founded in 1692, while the water of Seodokam Hermitage is so powerful that alcohol can’t be made using this hermitage water.

In total, Unheungsa Temple is home to two Korean Treasures and five provincial treasures. The two Korean Treasures are the “Hanging Painting and Storage Chest of Unheungsa Temple,” which is Korean Treasure #1317; and the other is the “Buddhist Painting of Unheungsa Temple,” which is Korean Treasure #1694.

Temple Layout

You’ll first approach Unheungsa Temple up a long valley road. This secluded mountain road leads up to the equally secluded temple grounds. Along the way, you’ll pass by the stately Iljumun Gate. From the temple parking lot, and up a flight of stone stairs, you’ll see the newly built Boje-ru Pavilion. This newly constructed entry pavilion is beautifully perched on a large, stone barrier. You’ll pass through the first story of the structure and climb up a narrow set of a stairs as a modern, third-story pagoda comes into view.

Beyond the modern three-story pagoda that stands all alone in the compact temple courtyard, you’ll find the Daeung-jeon Hall. The Daeung-jeon Hall is Gyeongsangnam-do Tangible Cultural Property #82. The Daeung-jeon Hall was destroyed during the Imjin War and reconstructed in 1731. The exterior walls to the main hall are adorned in simple dancheong colours. But the interior is far more elaborate than the exterior. Resting under three individual canopies are three large statues. The central image is dedicated to Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha), who is joined on either side by Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise) and Yaksayeorae-bul (The Buddha of Medicine, and the Buddha of the Eastern Paradise). This triad is Gyeongsangnam-do Tangible Cultural Property #538.

To the left of the main altar are a collection of three paintings. The first, and closest to the main altar, is a replica of the “Hanging Painting and Storage Chest of Unheungsa Temple.” The original, which dates back to 1730, is only brought out on the most important of days like Buddha’s Birthday. To the left of this smaller sized replica is a mural dedicated to Chilseong (The Seven Stars). And to the left of this shaman mural is a Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural). To the right of the main altar, on the other hand, is a stunning Gamno-do (Sweet Dew Mural) that dates back to 1730. It’s quite a large painting at 245.5 cm in height and 254 cm wide. It was created by the monk painter Uigyeom, who was a renowned painter in the Jeolla Province area during the 18th century along with 12 other painters. You’ll also find a painting dedicated to Dokseong (The Lonely Saint) in this area of the main hall, as well as a replica of the “Buddhist Painting of Unheungsa Temple, Goseong (Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva).” Like the Gamno-do, the original of this painting dates back to 1730, and it was also painted by Uigyeom. The original is Korean Treasure #1694. The interior of the Daeung-jeon Hall is packed with beautiful Buddhist artistry.

To the right of the Daeung-jeon Hall is the Myeongbu-jeon Hall. Like the main hall, the exterior of the Myeongbu-jeon Hall is adorned in simple dancheong colours. Stepping inside the Myeongbu-jeon Hall, you’ll find a solitary green-haired image of Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife). Joining Jijang-bosal inside the Myeongbu-jeon Hall are the Siwang (The Ten Kings of the Underworld). They are large, wooden images of the Siwang. And both entrances to the Myeongbu-jeon Hall are a guarded by two, large Geumgang-yeoksa (Vajra Warriors).

Between the Daeung-jeon Hall and the Myeongbu-jeon Hall, and still to the right of the main hall, you’ll find a smaller Sanshin-gak Hall. This shaman shrine hall is solely dedicated to Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit). The modern painting dedicated to Sanshin is joined in the painting by a rather inquisitive-looking tiger and a pair of dongja (attendants) carrying a basket of fruit that includes a peach and pomegranate.

To the left of the Daeung-jeon Hall, on the other hand, is the Yeongsan-jeon Hall, which is the other historic shrine hall at Unheungsa Temple. Like the Daeung-jeon Hall, the Yeongsan-jeon Hall dates back to 1731. Like all the shrine halls at the temple, the exterior walls to the Yeongsan-jeon Hall are adorned in simple dancheong colours. Stepping inside the Yeongsan-jeon Hall, you’ll find a triad of statues resting on the main altar. In the centre is a statue of Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). This central image is joined on either side by Yeondeung-bul (The Past Buddha) and Mireuk-bul (The Future Buddha). This main altar triad is joined on both sides (eight on each side) of the sixteen Nahan (The Historical Disciples of the Buddha). While they appear simple in design, they are still quite masterfully sculpted.

How To Get There

From the Samcheonpo Intercity Bus Terminal, you’ll need to catch Bus #30 to get to Unheungsa Temple. This bus goes directly to the temple. This bus says “Budu (부두) – Unheungsa (운흥사)” on it. There is also the same bus numbered Bus #30 that reads “부두-홀곡-운흥사” on it. This bus also goes to Unheungsa Temple, but it takes about ten minutes more. In total, the direct bus, Bus #30, takes about thirty minutes, or 16 stops, to get to Unheungsa Temple, while the other bus takes about 40 minutes.

Overall Rating: 7/10

While smaller in size, and with only a handful of shrine halls, Unheungsa Temple still has more than enough for visitors to enjoy including the five provincial treasures and the pair of Korean Treasures. The interior of the Daeung-jeon Hall is filled with Buddhist artistic excellence including the main altar triad, the Gamno-do, and the shaman murals. Additionally, the statues inside both the Yeongsan-jeon Hall and the Myeongbu-jeon Hall are stunning as well. Unheungsa Temple has undergone a fair amount of reconstruction over the past decade, and it has only helped elevate the temple that much higher in its overall beauty and overall aesthetic.

Mujinam Hermitage – 무진암 (Buyeo, Chungcheongnam-do)

Thu, 2024-04-18 03:05
Mujinam Hermitage in Buyeo, Chungcheongnam-do. Hermitage History

Mujinam Hermitage is located in western Buyeo, Chungcheongnam-do in the southern foothills of Mt. Mansusan (575 m). Additionally, the Mujinam Hermitage is directly associated with Muryangsa Temple and located just to the south of the main temple. Like the neighbouring Muryangsa Temple, Mujinam Hermitage was first built during Unified Silla (668-935 A.D.) by Beomil-guksa (810-889 A.D.). Eventually, the hermitage would be destroyed during the Imjin War (1592-98) only to be rebuilt during the reign of King Injo of Joseon (r. 1623-1649). In more recent years, the hermitage has become a nunnery for Buddhist nuns.

Hermitage Layout

As you first approach the hermitage, you’ll be welcomed to the grounds by a dozen stupas. It’s just past this budowon, as well as the nuns’ dorms, that you’ll finally enter the compact courtyard at Mujinam Hermitage.

Slightly to the right, you’ll immediately notice the Daeung-jeon Hall with a modern three-story stone pagoda out in front of it. The base of the pagoda is adorned with various Buddhist iconography that includes the Four Heavenly Kings, four lions, and Bodhisattvas. The body of the pagoda is simple with its upturned roof stones, and the finial is wonderfully ornate.

As for the Daeung-jeon Hall that backs this pagoda, the exterior walls are adorned in simple Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life Murals), as well as paintings of the Four Heavenly Kings. And near the front entry of the main hall, you’ll find a pair of large, ornamental dragons near the signboard to the shrine hall. Stepping inside the Daeung-jeon Hall, you’ll find a triad of statues under the main hall. The central image is that of Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha), who is joined on either side by Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion) and Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife). The triad rests on the main altar under a large, golden canopy. The first painting directly to the right of the main altar is a golden Chilseong (Seven Stars) mural. It’s joined on the far right wall by an equally golden Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural). Both are quite original in their compositions.

To the right rear of the Daeung-jeon Hall, you’ll find an outdoor shrine with a beautiful modern statue dedicated to Yaksayeorae-bul (The Buddha of Medicine, and the Buddha of the Eastern Paradise). Rather interestingly, there’s a stone roof-like structure over the head of Yaksayeorae-bul with a lotus flower relief on its underside. And on either side of the statue’s head are two Bicheon (Flying Heavenly Deities) reliefs. As for the mandorla that surrounds the statues entire body, there are fiery reliefs etched onto it.

And to the left rear of the Daeung-jeon Hall, you’ll find an unpainted Sanshin/Dokseong-gak Hall. Stepping inside this shaman shrine hall, you’ll see two murals: one dedicated to Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit) and the other to Dokseong (The Lonely Saint). Both shaman deities are wearing beautiful gold clothes, as are the dongja (attendants) that stand near them. In addition to these golden paintings, there is a nice wooden statue dedicated to Sanshin out in front of the mural dedicated to the Mountain Spirit.

How To Get There

To get to Mujinam Hermitage, you’ll first need to head in the direction of Muryangsa Temple. From the Buyeo Intercity Bus Terminal, you’ll need to head left out the exit and continue to walk towards the big street. After crossing the road, take Bus #127 from the Buyeo Market Bus Stop. Then, at the Muryang Village Bus Stop, which is 37 stops away, get off and walk towards Muryangsa Temple. However, before arriving at the larger Muryangsa Temple, hang a left for about 200 metres before arriving at the temple to get to Mujinam Hermitage.

Overall Rating: 3.5/10

While small in size, there are a few highlights to Mujinam Hermitage. One of these highlights is all the gold clothing of the various shaman deities found in all the murals at the hermitage. Also, the masterful stone statue of Yaksayore-bul, as well as the hermitage’s modern three-story pagoda, are something to have a closer look at while visiting this hermitage. And in combination with the neighbouring Muryangsa Temple, a trip to Mujinam Hermitage can make for a nice little day trip.

The budowon just outside the hermitage grounds. The Daeung-jeon Hall and outdoor shrine dedicated to Yaksayeorae-bul (The Medicine Buddha) at Mujinam Hermitage. The modern three-story pagoda at the hermitage. One of the Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life) that adorns the exterior of the Daeung-jeon Hall. The main altar inside the Daeung-jeon Hall. The Chilseong (Seven Stars) mural inside the main hall. Joined by an equally golden Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural). A closer look at the statue dedicated to Yaksayeorae-bul (The Medicine Buddha). Such great detail. The Sanshin/Dokseong-gak Hall at Mujinam Hermitage. The golden Sanshin (Mountain Spirit) mural inside the shaman shrine hall. Joined by this equally golden mural dedicated to Dokseong (The Lonely Saint). And the view from the Sanshin/Dokseong-gak Hall out towards the Daeung-jeon Hall and the morning light.—

Seochukam Hermitage – 서축암 (Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do)

Sun, 2024-04-14 23:41
Seochukam Hermitage on the Tongdosa Temple Grounds in Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do. Hermitage History

Seochukam Hermitage is located on the Tongdosa Temple grounds in Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do in the southern foothills of Mt. Yeongchuksan (1,082.2 m). Seochukam Hermitage is one of nearly twenty hermitages on the Tongdosa Temple grounds; in fact, it’s just 150 metres away from neighbouring Jajangam Hermitage. The hermitage was first founded by the monk Wolha in 1996. In total, there are only a handful of buildings on the hermitage grounds.

Hermitage Layout

You first make your way up to the hermitage up a long, forested roadway, until you eventually come to the hermitage parking lot south of the walled-off grounds. To the right of the hermitage parking lot, you’ll find a plainly adorned entry gate. On either side of the entrance to the hermitage grounds are two storage areas. Passing through the beautiful gate, you’ll enter into the lush hermitage courtyard. Seochukam Hermitage has the feel of a Japanese temple instead of a Korean one. What makes me say this is that all of the buildings are purposely unadorned. The exterior walls to both the entry gate and the Daeung-jeon Hall are adorned in their natural wood finish and white along the walls.

Having entered the main hermitage courtyard, you’ll notice the administrative office to your left and the Yosachae (monks’ dorms) to your right. Between the entry gate and the Yosachae is a modern half-sized replica of Dabo-tap Pagoda from the famed Bulguksa Temple. This pagoda used to stand in front of the main hall, but it has been moved in more recent years to its present location. And out in front of this pagoda is a water fountain. Water pours forth from a stone turtle’s mouth, collects in pools of water with baby turtle statues and high-relief images of lotus flowers on it, and flows out into a lotus basin.

Seochukam Hermitage in April, 2007.

Straight ahead, on the other hand, and between the administrative office and the Yosachae, is the only shrine hall at Seochukam Hermitage. This is the Daeung-jeon Hall. Again, the exterior walls to the main hall are adorned in their natural wood finish and white walls. On either side of the entry to the Daeung-jeon Hall are two storage areas.

There is a wooden corridor out in front of the central entrance to the Daeung-jeon Hall. Stepping inside the main hall, your eyes will instantly be drawn to all the colour inside the Daeung-jeon Hall. Every inch of the interior is filled with stunning murals that include the Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life Murals), the Four Heavenly Kings, shaman deities, an all-white Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion), and a mural dedicated to the scene from the “Vision of the Bejeweled Stupa” from the Lotus Sutra. All of these paintings are masterful in their execution. As for the main altar, it houses a triad of statues set back in an enclosed area. The triad consists of a central image dedicated to Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha), who is joined on either side by Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife) and Gwanseeum-bosal. The triad rests under a beautiful canopy with a manja image at its centre. On either side of the main altar are a collection of four panel paintings. These paintings consist of images dedicated to Jijang-bosal, Gwanseeum-bosal, Bohyeon-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Power), and Munsu-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom). The interior to the compact main hall is stunningly filled with beautiful Buddhist artwork that’s second-to-none.

How To Get There

From Busan, you’ll first need to get to the Nopo subway stop, which is stop #134. From there, go to the intercity bus terminal. From the intercity bus terminal get a bus bound for Tongdosa Temple. The ride should last about 25 minutes. The buses leave every 20 minutes from 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. From where the bus drops you off at the Tongdosa Temple bus stop, you’ll need to walk an additional 10 minutes to the temple grounds west of the bus stop.

From Tongdosa Temple, you’ll need to continue up the main road for another 700 metres until you come to a fork in the road. Instead of heading straight, turn right and continue heading in this direction for a couple of kilometres. There is a cluster of hermitages in this area. Find the sign that reads Seochukam Hermitage – 서축암 and continue heading in this direction until you arrive at the hermitage.

Overall Rating: 4/10

Seochukam Hermitage is both beautiful and tranquil in its simplicity and size. The hermitage buildings are equally beautiful in their simplicity, as well. However, stepping inside the Daeung-jeon Hall, this simplicity is disrupted by the overwhelming beauty that’s artistically present inside the main hall from the main altar statues to the numerous Buddhist themed murals. Seochukam Hermitage is beautiful in its contrasting elements found in both its architecture and its artwork.

The wooden entry gate to Seochukam Hermitage. Walking through the entry gate at the hermitage. The beautiful water fountain and replica of Dabo-tap Pagoda. The Daeung-jeon Hall at Seochukam Hermitage. The main altar inside the Daeung-jeon Hall. The Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural) inside the main hall. The first painting of the Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life Murals) entitled “The Announcement of the Imminent Birth” inside the Daeung-jeon Hall. The fourth painting of the Palsang-do set entitled “Renunciation.” And the eighth, and final, mural of the Palsang-do set entitled “Death.” The “Vision of the Bejeweled Stupa” from the Lotus Sutra painted on one of the interior walls of the Daeung-jeon Hall. From one of the amazing murals that adorns the entire interior of the Daeung-jeon Hall at Seochukam Hermitage.

 I would like to be considered for the teaching position. I feel that I have the necessary skills,experience and motivation.I have extensive experience working as a Language Teacher which incorporates teaching all levels and age groups. I began teaching with ECC in Nagoya, then with ECC in Gwanju and Berkeley School in Busan Korea. I taught all age groups from Kindergarten level to adult conversation classes. Returning from Korea I was employed by Berkeley House as an English teacher contracted to JICA (Japanese International Cooperation Agency). I taught an intensive English course for Japanese volunteers for rural development in third-world countries. I stayed with ACC English School in Nagoya and Toyoake City in Aichi for two years teaching all levels, before joining Michigan English School in Gifu City. After years in the private school sector, I worked as an Assistant Teacher for Yongju Public High School and the Chang Nyong English Village both in Korea. I was employed by Fifth Wings English School in Tochigi-Ken as an Assistant Language Teacher for two public schools. My last ALT position was at Toyoshima Minami Junior High School, Nagano Ken. I was then employed as a homeroom Teacher at the International School of Nagano and finished teaching at the Nagoya YMCA . I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss with you in person in regards to the position. Thank you for your time and consideration.
