Duryun Mountain is DaeHeung-sa, a major Zen Center of Zen and
Buddhistic Philosophy and head temple of the 22nd parish district of
the Chogye Order. The air is always fragrant with the aroma of teas.
DaeHeung-sa, which has recently got it's name back, has stood since
Saint Chungkwan founded the hermitage Manil-am. After the invasion
of Korea by the Japanese in 1592 Saint Seosan stated that
DaeHeung-sa was never to suffer from by Samjae the three disasters,
ofwind, flood and fire and should never be destroyed, so it would
remain as the centre of Buddhist spirit and ideals. He asked that
his own Ceremonial robes and monk's bowls and his relics should be
kept there and DaeHeung-sa has prospered ever since. Although the
Chosun government attempted to suppress Buddhism DaeHeung-sa has
managed to produce thirteen Zen Monks as well as thirteen High monks
of education and has become the leading Zen Buddhist centre and it
was the place where Zen Master Choui, who re-introduced the Korean
Tea Culture, met the great thinkers of the time who exchanged their
views on the ideas of the doctrines of Confucianism, Buddhism,and
Realism, and discussed their poetry,, paintings and tea flavours.
The path to the temple through the forest is a tranquil walk where
your mind can be composed and cleansed of all worries.
