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.

    The Most Misused Sentence Connector | Korean FAQ

    Mon, 2024-04-08 15:19

    I wanted to make a summarized video about the ~데 form, because the ~데 form is the most misused sentence connector that I see learners using. I also misused this a ton when I was a beginner because I didn't understand when it was used. It's only after years of studying and practice that I realized how the ~데 form is used to make comparisons, and how it has a different nuance than saying just "and" or "but."

    Billy Go’s Korean Conversation Course | #1: Weather – 날씨

    Thu, 2024-04-04 15:42

    It's time for a BRAND NEW COURSE! If you've already learned the basics (such as with my Beginner Korean Course), or you just want to start jumping into 100% real, native-level, and natural Korean conversations, then what are you waiting for? Try my new free course, "Korean Conversation Course."

    This free course will have 20 episodes, each with full explanations of grammar, vocabulary, and expressions. It also includes plenty of spoken-only language - the kind of stuff you'll only hear in real conversations, and not in most courses. Because of that, I recommend that you already have a basic understanding of the language before starting this course so that you can get the most out of it.

    Each week I'll be posting one new lesson, for the next 19 weeks until the course is finished. There's also a book version of this course with 5 extra conversations, but this video course is free and does not require anything else to use it.

    Student requirements for Hakwans and Kindy

    Wed, 2024-04-03 14:18

    The legislation seems quite nebulous here.

    I read(very hard to find as usual) that an international degree(D2 or 4) student on a student visa can be employed in an establishment provided that it isn't associated with English, with examples such as Hakwans, Kindergartens teaching English, Kids' Cafes and institutes.

    This was in the restrictions area in visas(published online).

     

    I am wondering,,,,,,,, what are the rules ->what is the point of "Jumping through hoops to qualify for the Board of Education and Immigrations regs?

    So, we can do what we want to, not register, not do medicals, and work where we please from now on. Why should we meet any of the legal requirements for E2, Board of Education requirements? If a student can do any ESL job without the same checks, etc. Are students allowed to work in ESL institutes in any form?

     

    As per norm, the information is convoluted.

    ~던지 "So" | Live Stream Abridged

    Tue, 2024-04-02 14:51

    ~던지 is an advanced level grammar form that means "so," and is used for emphasizing the verb it's used with. This form is different than ~든지 (which I also compare it with in the lesson).

    Although it's an advanced topic because it requires a large amount of advanced grammar forms and a high level of Korean in order to use it fully - it's often used in longer sentences - the form itself is actually quite simple and straightforward. It's a simpler version of the ~서 form ("because") and means "because (verb) so...."

    UCLA graduate

    Tue, 2024-04-02 05:31
    Classified Ad Type: Location: Neighborhood: Busan

    Experience teaching: Literature, physics, chemistry, SAT and certain AP subjects. Able to give college counseling and give guidance on college essays. Experienced in preparing students for interview for new jobs or promotions. Versatile.

    Pedagogy: I believe more in preparing and training the minds of students to be able to learn self sufficiently with independence and creativity. Instead of rote memorization or simply practicing endlessly, it is necessary to challenge and struggle to accomplish a goal and ceaselessly improve. Much of this is missing from the korean education system that only emphasizes results, and students are increasingly trained to be highly skilled but dependent workers. The goal is constant improvement and development.
