Haeunjeongsa Temple – 해운정사 (Haeundae-gu, Busan)

Fri, 2021-07-16 01:26
Gwaneumbo-gung Three-Story Wooden Pagoda at Haeunjeongsa Temple in Haeundae-gu, Busan. Temple History

Hyanggok-seonsa (1912-1978), who was the founding monk of Haeunjeongsa Temple, was wandering all over Korea in an attempt to find a perfect place to build a temple. And the reason that Hyanggok-seonsa wanted to build a temple is that he wanted to help rescue people’s souls. Eventually, he arrived in Haeundae, Busan. More specifically, he found the perfect place for a temple at the base of Mt. Jangsan (634 m) to the south and east of the diminutive Mt. Bongdaesan (147.7 m). The reason that Hyanggok-seonsa decided to build Haeungjeongsa Temple where it’s located is that he believed that Mt. Jangsan looked like a seated female lion. And since he wanted his followers to be like lions, he decided to build Haeungjeongsa Temple in Haeundae, Busan in 1971.

It’s also believed that Haeunjeongsa Temple in Busan is placed in a geographically auspicious location based upon the principles of geomancy, or “Pungsu-jiri” in Korean. So based upon Pungsu-jiri (geomancy), if a person visits Haeungjeongsa Temple once a day, they will gain greater personal fortune and luck.

Temple Layout

Throughout the past two decades, there has been numerous changes that have taken place at Haeunjeongsa Temple. The temple continues to grow and expand. This is made evident right at the very entry of the temple. When I first visited Haeunjeongsa Temple back in 2004, there wasn’t an entry gate. Now, there’s a beautiful Haetalmun Gate. This gate wasn’t completed until 2006. This beautiful and spacious entry gate is joined by a pair of large Haetae statues out in front of it.

Up a long stone staircase, you’ll enter into the temple’s main courtyard. Straight ahead of you is the massive Wontongbo-jeon Hall. The exterior walls to this massive main hall are adorned with two sets of murals. The upper set of murals are the Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life Murals), and the lower set of murals are the Shimu-do (The Ox-Herding Murals). Joining these murals is intricate woodwork adorned with elaborate dancheong colours that cover every square inch of the Wontongbo-jeon Hall’s exterior walls. As for the interior, there are five large statues that take up residence on the main altar. The most impressive is the central image of the multi-armed and headed Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion). The far left wall is home to a memorial shrine for the dead, while the far right wall acts as an altar for Buddhist monks that were important in the growth of Buddhism in Korea. Additionally, there’s a Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural) to the immediate right of the main altar inside the Wontongbo-jeon Hall. There’s also a simplistic mural of Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit) next to the Shinjung Taenghwa.

To the right of the Wontongbo-jeon Hall, and just as impressive as the main hall, is the Gwaneumbo-gung Three-Story Wooden Pagoda, which is a three-story wooden pagoda dedicated to the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Gwanseeum-bosal. Just like the main hall, the Gwaneumbo-gung Three-Story Wooden Pagoda is beautifully adorned with dancheong colours that are predominantly green in colour. As for the interior, you’ll only be able to enter the first floor of the structure. Sitting on the main altar is a miniature golden palace-like structure with a statue of Gwanseeum-bosal inside. Joining this main altar structure, and flanking it on both the right and left walls, are two more incarnations of the Bodhisattva of Compassion. One of these statues holds a baby, while the other cradles a medicinal bottle in her right hand. These two larger statues, in turn, are joined by wall-to-wall ceramic statues of Gwanseeum-bosal.

And to the right of the Gwaneumbo-gung Three-Story Wooden Pagoda is the Daebul-jeon Hall. This temple shrine hall is a variation of the Cheonbul-jeon Hall. The exterior walls are adorned with various Buddhist motif paintings around the eaves of the hall. And just like the previous two temple shrine halls, the Daebul-jeon Hall is also adorned with beautiful dancheong colours. As you enter the Daebul-jeon Hall, you’ll be greeted by a thousand tiny jade green statues dedicated to the Buddha. Resting on the main altar is a triad centred by Birojana-bul (The Buddha of Cosmic Energy). And on the far right wall is a painting dedicated to Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife). And on the far right wall is another Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural).

In front of both the Gwaneumbo-gung Three-Story Wooden Pagoda and the Daebul-jeon Hall, as you make your way back towards the Wontongbo-jeon Hall, you’ll find an exact replica of the Dabo-tap Pagoda. For those that might be unfamiliar with this pagoda, it’s the famous pagoda at Bulguksa Temple in Gyeongju. The original is National Treasure #20.

Having walked around the main temple courtyard, and past the main hall, you’ll find a collection of statues dedicated to prominent Buddhist monks like the Bodhidharma (5th to 6th century), Taego Bou (1301-1383), and Gyeongheo-seonsa (1849-1912). Sitting in the centre of the set is a stone statue of Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). In total, there are ten statues of these prominent monks in this outdoor shrine.

And out in front of this outdoor shrine dedicated to prominent monks is a rather peculiar looking seven-story pagoda. At its base sits four lions reminiscent of the Four Lion Three-story Stone Pagoda of Hwaeomsa Temple (N.T. #35). The body of the pagoda has Buddhas on its four sides. And out in front of the pagoda stands a golden statue dedicated to Gwanseeum-bosal. To the rear of this seven-story pagoda is the temple’s compact Jong-ru (Bell Pavilion), as well as the monks dorms, administrative office, and kitchen.

How To Get There

You simply need to take the Busan subway system to Haeundae Station, which is stop #203. Take one of the exits out of the north side of the station and head towards the Haeundae train station. Once you get outside, you can easily catch a taxi that will bring you to Haeunjeongsa Temple.

Overall Rating: 7/10

This relatively unknown temple is an added little bonus if you’re headed to Haeundae Beach. As for Haeunjeongsa Temple, it’s filled with beautiful architecture like the Wontongbo-jeon Hall, the Gwaneumbo-gung Three-Story Wooden Pagoda, and the Daebul-jeon Hall. Adding to this is the beautiful main altar statue inside the Wontongbo-jeon Hall of Gwanseeum-bosal, as well as the outdoor shrine dedicated to prominent Korean monks and the seven-story stone pagoda. So if you’re in the area, Haeunjeongsa Temple is definitely worth a visit.

Gwangbae and Geosingwang – The Nimbus and Mandorla: 광배 & 거신광

Wed, 2021-07-14 23:36
The Stone Seated Buddha in Mireukgok Valley of Namsan Mountain at Borisa Temple in Gyeongju. The statue is Korean Treasure #136. Introduction

It’s common to see either the body or head (or both) of a Buddha or Bodhisattva at a Korean Buddhist temple have a circular nimbus or boat-like shaped mandorla surrounding it. Both shapes are loaded with symbolic meaning. So why do they appear in Buddhist artwork like in statues or paintings? And what do they mean?

Gwangbae and Geosingwang Design

In Korean, the round nimbus around the head of a Buddha or Bodhisattva is known as a “Gwangbae – 광배.” And the boat-like shaped mandorla around the head and body of a Buddha or Bodhisattva is called a “Geosingwang – 거신광” in Korean. In India, the nimbus is traditionally placed exclusively around the head of the Buddha or Bodhisattva; however, in Korea, the nimbus can either appear around the head and/or the body of the Buddha or Bodhisattva. In all cases, the nimbus (gwangbae) and mandorla (geosingwang) is meant to symbolize the light of wisdom and truth.

The statue inside the Seokguram Grotto in Gyeongju. The Seokguram Grotto statue is a great example of a circular nimbus mounted behind the head of Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). Seokguram Grotto is National Treasure #24. The Clay Seated Buddha of Buseoksa Temple is a great example of a mandorla surrounding the entire body of Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise). The statue is National Treasure #45.

More specifically, in Korea, the light that shines forth from a Buddha or Bodhisattva is divided into two types of light. The first is known as “The Light from the Head,” and the second is known as “The Light from the Body.” Images that have a body mandorla will also surround the head in Korea, as well. However, this isn’t always the case with a head nimbus, as a head nimbus can stand alone adorning a Korean Buddhist statue or painting like the statue of Seokgamoni-bul inside the Seokguram Grotto in Gyeongju. If a statue or painting has a head nimbus, look at the tuft of hair between the eyebrows of the Buddha or Bodhisattva, as it’s believed that this is the most powerful ray of light that can emanate from a Buddha or Bodhisattva.

If a statue or painting of a Buddha or Bodhisattva has a full body mandorla, which encapsulates both the head and the body, this type of mandorla is referred to as a “Geosingwang – 거신광” in Korean. The shape of the mandorla can look like a flame that’s flaring up. If this is the case, this type of mandorla is called a “Bojuhyeong,” which means “precious gem type” in English. However, if the shape of the mandorla simply looks like the bow of a ship, it’s called a “Juhyeong” in Korean. This shape usually consists of an outer loop filled with a honeysuckle design or a Chinese grass design with a lotus flower design in the centre of the aforementioned winding vegetation.

The Mural Painting in Geungnakjeon Hall of Muwisa Temple is National Treasure #313. Housed inside the Daejang-jeon Hall, which is Korean Treasure #827, at Geumsansa Temple, is this fiery mandorla that surrounds a statue of Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). Gwangbae and Geosingwang Meaning

This form of nimbus and mandorla light is referenced in the “Lotus Sutra.” In this sutra, it is stated that a ray of light emitted from “…the tuft of white hair between his [the Buddha’s] eyebrows.” And from “The on the Visualization of the Buddha of Infinite Light,” the ray shining forth from the Buddha is the psychic energy of enlightenment. It’s also a mark of wisdom. This is number thirty-one of the thirty-two major marks on the Buddha’s body. This radiating mark of wisdom is known as an “auspicious ray.” It’s also known as the “mark of wisdom light.”

Furthermore, and according to Buddhism, this light that radiates from either the head or body of a Buddha or Bodhisattva is said to penetrate the darkness of delusion and falseness to help reveal the Truth. In Korean, “gwang” means physical light, which shines on its own. The Korean word “myeong,” on the other hand, is the illumination of objects by light. Brought together, and used in a Buddhist context, the word means a shining light that destroys all ignorance that helps reveal the dharma. Furthermore, this light breaks through delusion and false beliefs, while also relieving all sentient beings that suffer through Samsara. Ultimately, this light will lead individuals towards the path of liberation and freedom from Samsara.

The Stone Seated Buddha of Gounsa Temple is Korean Treasure #246. The Stone Seated Buddha of Unmunsa Temple is Korean Treasure #317. The Stone Seated Bhaisajyaguru Buddha of Jikjisa Temple is Korean Treasure #319. Examples

There are numerous wonderful examples of nimbus and mandorla adorning either Buddha or Bodhisattva statues or paintings throughout Korea. Here are just a few examples of these amazing artifacts: the Stone Seated Buddha in Mireukgok Valley of Namsan Mountain at Borisa Temple in Gyeongju, which is Korean Treasure #136; the statue of Seokgamoni-bul inside the Seokguram Grotto in Gyeongju. The Seokguram Grotto, statue included, is National Treasure #24. The Clay Seated Buddha of Buseoksa Temple in Yeongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do is National Treasure #45; the Mural Painting in Geungnakjeon Hall of Muwisa Temple is National Treasure #313; the statue of Seokgamoni-bul inside the Daejangjeon Hall of Geumsansa Temple in Gimje, Jeollabuk-do; the Stone Seated Buddha of Gounsa Temple in Uiseong, Gyeongsangbuk-do is Korean Treasure #246; the Stone Seated Buddha of Unmunsa Temple in Cheongdo, Gyeongsangbuk-do is Korean Treasure #317; The Stone Seated Bhaisajyaguru Buddha of Jikjisa Temple in Gimcheon, Gyeongsangbuk-do is Korean Treasure #319; the Stone Seated Buddhas in Bukji-ri, Yeongju, now located at Buseoksa Temple, is Korean Treasure #220-1; and the Stone Seated Buddha of Yonghwasa Temple in Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do is Korean Treasure #491.

The Stone Seated Buddhas in Bukji-ri, Yeongju, which is now housed at Buseoksa Temple, is Korean Treasure #220-1. The Stone Seated Buddha of Yonghwasa Temple is Korean Treasure #491. —

Wandering Around Ulsan

Wed, 2021-07-14 22:22

Recently, I have been walking around my adopted hometown of Ulsan, a lot more with my camera. I used to just walk or run along the Taehwa river to get into shape. However, since downloading “Hipstamatic X” on my phone and then picking up a smaller camera bag, I have started taking a lot more photos.

The reason for this was not really clear at first. I just wanted to get out and walk before work in order to get some exercise but more and more, I started noticing the world around me a little more. For photographers, that is something that we tend to forget as we focus on the end location. Especially, for landscape photographers, like myself.

Last month, I read the book “the Wander Society” by Keri Smith and it really struck a chord with me. It wasn’t like anything else that I have read at all this year and it opened my eyes up to something that I was missing in my day-to-day life and that was a sense of adventure.

How does this all have anything to do with photography in Korea, you ask? The answer is simple, we can’t always just pack up and go to Seoul or Jeollanamdo whenever we want. Some of us can’t wake up early and others work until late. However, we all have time to simply take a walk, somewhere.

After rediscovering film photography, this sense of wonder in the wandering that I do became something that I look forward to most days. It is when the grief and stress take a backseat to the crazy world around me. The changing of the seasons and the random animals that inhabit the urban environment around my apartment seem to stand out a little more when I am poking around with my camera.

So what can you do? just take a walk. You don’t have to have any set subject. It doesn’t have to be about your kids, girlfriend, dog or partner. Just open up to where ever your mind takes you. I know that sounds a little too “woo-woo” new wave for most but trust me when I say that it will help you discover hidden parts of your neighbourhood and your creativity.

My advice would be to take some time each day and go for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a long time and you don’t have to go very far. Just go and observe the light. Walk and see what catches your eye and photograph it. That is all. You don’t have to share these shots with anyone. They are just for you

The bottomline here is that this post is mostly about discovering not only your creativity but also your city as well. Often times, we gravitate to well-known areas to shoot because we think that it will get us more likes. However, taking the time to explore the area around your adopted home will prove very useful in the long run.

Namjijangsa Temple – 남지장사 (Dalseong-gun, Daegu)

Tue, 2021-07-13 01:46
The Daeung-jeon Hall at Namjijangsa Temple in Dalseong-gun, Daegu.

This posts contains affiliate links. I receive a percentage of sales, if you purchase the item after clicking on an advertising link at no expense to you. This will help keep the website running. Thanks, as always, for your support!

Temple History

Namjijangsa Temple is located in the southern part of Daegu in Dalseong-gun. More specifically, the temple is located to the south-east of the towering Mt. Choijeongsan (905 m). As for the name of the temple, Namjijangsa Temple means “South Jijang Temple” in English, which is in reference to the Bodhisattva of the Afterlife: Jijang-bosal. And the temple is a counterpart to Bukjijangsa Temple in neighbouring Dong-gu, Daegu.

Namjijangsa Temple was first established in 684 A.D. by the monk Yanggae. Eventually, the temple would grow to include eight shrine halls, a Jong-ru (Bell Pavilion) and Cheonwangmun Gate. Namjijangsa Temple is also believed to have once been the home to the famed monk Ilyeon (1206-1289) in 1263. Ilyeon was the author of the Samguk Yusa (Memorabilia of the Three Kingdoms). However, Namjijangsa Temple was completely destroyed by the invading Japanese in 1592 during the Imjin War (1592-1598). The temple would later be rebuilt on a smaller scale starting in 1652 by the monk Inhye. This would start a process of reconstruction and extensive renovations that would last over one hundred years, coming to an end in 1769.

Historically, the temple has been home to two of Korea’s most famous monks: Samyeong-daesa (1544-1610) and Muhak-daesa (1327-1405). Muhak-daesa was an advisor to Yi Seong-gye (Taejo of Joseon, r. 1392-1398), who would found the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). Muhak-daesa once studied at Namjijangsa Temple. As for Samyeong-daesa, he would use Namjijangsa Temple as the main training centre for the Righteous Army (Uibyeong – 의병) in the Yeongnam region. Samyeong-daesa would lead the Righteous Army against the Japanese during the Imjin War (1592-1598); sadly, this would result in the temple being a target by the Japanese, leading to its ultimate destruction in 1592, to help blunt the efforts of Samyeong-daesa.

Temple Layout

You first approach Namjijangsa Temple down a few country roads, until you eventually arrive at the temple parking lot. It’s next to a beautiful large water fountain that you’ll climb a set of stone stairs to get to the rather peculiar entry gate. The entry gate at Namjijangsa Temple, rather uniquely, has a Jong-ru (Bell Pavilion) to the right with a storage area to the left. Housed inside the Jong-ru Pavilion is a stout Brahma Bell with Poroe adorning the top of the bronze bell and Korean writing and Bicheon (Flying Heavenly Deities) adorning the body of the bell.

Having passed through this temple entry gate, you’ll enter into the main temple courtyard at Namjijangsa Temple. To your left, as you first enter, are the monks living quarters. And to the right is the temple’s visitors centre. Straight ahead of you sits the Daeung-jeon Hall. In front of the main hall stands a slender five-story stone pagoda that’s adorned with various trinkets that visitors have left behind as signs of devotion. Adorning the exterior walls to the Daeung-jeon Hall are a beautiful set of the Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life). As for the interior, and resting on the main altar of the Daeung-jeon Hall, are a triad of statues centred by Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). This statue is joined on either side by Munsu-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom) and Bohyeon-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Power). And on the far right wall hangs a large Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural).

To the right rear of the Daeung-jeon Hall is the Samseong-gak Hall. Housed inside this shaman shrine hall are a triad of paintings. Both the Dokseong (Lonely Saint) and Chilseong (Seven Stars) murals are predominantly red in colour. But it’s the curmudgeonly Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit), who holds the accompanying tiger by the tail, that’s the main attraction of the three shaman murals.

To the left of the Daeung-jeon Hall is the newly constructed Geukrak-jeon Hall. As you first enter the shrine hall, you’ll find amazing dragons adorning the latticework of the entry door. At the base of this door is an equally amazing Gwimyeon (Monster Masks) guarding the entry of the Geukrak-jeon Hall. As for the interior, and resting on a packed main altar, is a triad centred by Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise). He’s joined on either side by Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion) and Daesaeji-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom and Power for Amita-bul). Both Bodhisattvas wear beautiful fiery crowns.

And just to the left of the Geukrak-jeon Hall, in an outdoor pavilion, under a canopy, is a shrine dedicated to Yongwang (The Dragon King). The intense image of Yongwang is joined by two twisting dragons. The large image of Yongwang is also joined by a spring at the base of the mural.

How To Get There

From the Daegu train station, you’ll need to walk about fifteen minutes, or one kilometre, to get to the Chilseong market (where the NH Bank is located) bus stop. Take the bus that reads “Gachang 2” on it. After fifty stops, or one hour, you’ll need to get off at the Urokri stop. This is also the last stop of the bus route. From the Urokri stop, you’ll need to walk an additional 2.7 kilometres, or forty-one minutes, to get to Namjijangsa Temple.

You can take a bus or you can simply take a taxi from the Daegu train station. If you do decide to take a taxi, it’ll cost you around 25,000 won (one way), and it’ll take about one hour.

Overall Rating: 6/10

Without a doubt, the biggest highlight to this temple is the curmudgeonly Sanshin painting inside the Samseong-gak Hall. Adding to the temple’s overall beauty is the Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural) housed inside the Daeung-jeon Hall, the main altar statues inside the Geukrak-jeon Hall, and the large outdoor shrine dedicated to Yongwang (The Dragon King).

Hello everyone,


I'm currently looking for someone to take over my officetel because I would like to leave Korea soon. It's located in a very central area, and the landlord can communicate in English, and she's really helpful. If I didn't have to leave, I would've stayed here a lot longer. Details are below:

Available from August 1st!

Key money/Deposit: 3 million

Monthly rent: 370,000 won 

Average Gwanribi: 100,000 a month but the price includes water and electricity each month, and gas is separate.

If you would like it furnished, I would prefer this, this is also possible. Everything is less than a year old so it's all in really good condition.  The curtains and bathroom cabinet were also recently changed. I also have a prepaid wifi-contract that doesn't end until October so when you move in, you wouldn't have to worry about wifi right away.  If you're interested, please don't hesitate to contact me, and I could set up a tour of the apartment.
