Sarira Stupas By The Road To Seonwun-sa Temple.

in busy •  5 months ago


On the way to the temple, I saw a gate through the trees.




The atmosphere around the gate seemed different from other usual gates.
I came closer to the gate, at I noticed that this gate was for the Sarira Stupa area.


Sarira is mysterious and sacred relics created as the results of the cremation for the monks and even ordinary people in deep believing to Buddhism
Sarira looks like the jewelry. There was only once scientific investigation in Korea about 20 years ago. At that time it was reported that the component of Sarira was as same as that of the bone. Interesting thing was Sarira was even stronger than the iron.
Many Buddhists are believing that Sarira is the evidence of the realization and the enlightenment.

I entered into the Sarira stupa area. They were taking care of Sarira Stupa area very well.
It seemed that those stupas had been built for a long time.


Looking at the stupas, I thought that life is but an empty dream.
Those monks had lived their life with enduring religious austerities.
But they had passed away, and nobody knows their lives.

I took the photos of the Sarira stupas.
While taking the photos, I was wondered about their lives as the monks.



There was an impressive stupas located on the rock.
Why they put the sarira stupa on the rock ?
It was a first time to see the sarira stupa on the rock since I have ever surveyed the temples.



Usually the appearance of the Sarira Stupas in Seonwun-sa temple was simple and not splendid, but the stupas in this temple were more elegant and impressive than those of other temples.
This simplicity of the stupas seemed to give me more room for thinking what the life is.



Before entering into the temple, the sarira stupas made me think the meaning of life in this world.

Exactly you are right.
There was a calm place. So I could feel something transcendental.

Regards @slowwalker

For me it "sounds" in a silence mood. I wish i could listen to the that mood in that sacred place


I just love this old Korean culture. Asian culture in general I find fascinating. Why they put these stupas together how they do is intriguing to say the least. I'm now in Prague Czeck Republic Mr. Walker! Hope you are having a great day! -Dan

Just looking at the pictures the place fills you with good energy, I love the simple details, so I love just using stones! The green environment; it seems to me the most appropriate to fill the moment with a little more spirituality! What a rich place, my mother tongue is Spanish, he helped me with the translator

Wow such beautiful place, which city in korea is this place.

The name of the place rings a bell to me. Either I have visited it from one of my school trips or I probably learnt about it from school text books. what a beautiful place !

Really amazing place! So green :D
I love the old stone.
Great post @slowwalker! Thank you for sharing these places with us.


Thank you so much for your visiting

Your posts are like a tour that they make us, what a wonderful place, how would it feel to be there?I've always thought that places with that Asian touch transmit an aura as beautiful as peace and tranquility that really is fantastic

Very interesting what you show us of that temple, it is very beautiful each one of the photos and the designs with stupas are amazing about all that is in the rock.

Who does not like to see the natural scene. Everyone wants to visit the beautiful places of the world. We have become mechanical to see ourselves the buildings of the brick-cement-stone buildings around us. Difficulty in nesting the house. So maybe our mechanical city, where there is a lot of opportunities, as well as our sightseeing. Because we are naturally comfortable. Now we do not go to enjoy the wonderful landscapes at any place of trouble, where we have to face many problems. And that is why we go beyond our sights, some of the wonderful places in the world.

@slowwalker beautiful nature.

It is a very calm picture.

Congratulations @slowwalker!

Nice post
Good luck

There is so much to reflect upon walking through the tranquility, these relics hold a place of worship in the soul of many.

It has made me wonder if this looks so beautiful because of what is here or were they placed here because it is so beautiful?

I think perhaps a little bit of both.
