Solitary Sage: the Profound Life and Legacy of Korea’s “Go-un” Choi Chi Won

Great scholar, writer and spiritual sage Choi Chi Won (857-?) is one of the most interesting yet enigmatic figures of all Korea's cultural history, displaying many virtues and talents and symbolizing many key themes. He exemplifies the tragic spirit of the Unified Silla Dynasty’s waning days, and the incipient harmony among Korea’s Buddhism, Daoism and Confucianism –a general "culture hero" of Korean tradition. He served as a brilliant government official in both Tang China and Korea, but then adopted the scholar-name Go-un [Lonely Cloud] to reflect his feelings about his life, during which he practiced Daoism and lived in great Buddhist temples and recorded their histories, which remain inscribed on stone monuments today. Finally, he attained “immortality”at Gayasan Haeinsa Temple.

 

This lecture will tell the fascinating story of his life, showing many photos of the lovely sites associated with him, and explain the profound effect that his legacy left on the next 1,100 years of Korea's cultural development.

 

Don’t miss the chance to have a lecture from Professor David A. Mason(Associate Professor, Korean Cultural Tourism at Sejong University) and learn about the history of Silla. The fee would be free. The venue of this event will be near Anguk Sation(line3). Specific details will be emailed to you once you send us an email for reservation.

Place: Korean Temple Food Center

On Thursday, December 21st, 10:30am-12:00pm, the Itaewon Global Village Center will hold a “Temple food making class: Yubu Boseot Jeorim (Tofu Pockets with Mushroom filling)”  The class will give participants an opportunity to learn the natural and healthy Korean temple food.

 

Temple food

Temple food refers to the food eaten daily at Buddhist temples. At Buddhist temples, everything is considered a part of practice. From growing vegetables to preparing the food, monks and nuns are directly involved in the whole process.

 

Monastic practitioners make it a point to always be grateful for the efforts of all those involved in the preparation of food.
They take only the amount need for their physical sustenance, leaving no leftover food in their bowls. This distinctive approach to food preparation has been gradually shaped over many centuries, based on a foundation of Buddhist philosophy and practice.

Temple food is natural, healthy and also a part of Buddhist life. Even today the 1700 - year - old tradition is alive at Korean Buddhist temples.

 

This class is a great way to learn more about Korean temple food, Buddhism lifestyle and of course, learn how to cook simple Korean vegan dishes.

 

The participation fee for this class is 10,000won.  We will be making “Yubu Boseot Jeorim”. Yubu is triangular (or squared)-shaped pockets made up of deep-fried tofu. Boseot is the Korean word for mushroom. And Jeorim is to boil food in  soy sauce until the sauce thickens.

 

The venue of this event will be near Anguk Station. Specific details will be emailed to you once you have made your payment. You can sign up in person or by email only.

 

(Only Foreigners can join this program.)
