The Banners And The Drawings Around The Stage For The Ritual For The Yeongsanjae In Bonwonsa,

in busy •  10 days ago

The stage was prepared in the foreground of the temple.
It seemed one of the most important to understanding the meaning of this ritual.
This ritual is said as a reenacting scene of Buddha’s teaching when he was alive.

The most important part in the stage seemed the drawing of Shaka which was hung in the front of the stage. It was as high as two story building.

The sky was covered with white curtains to make the shadow for performing the ritual.

Various colors and types of the banners were hung around the stage and here and there.

What attracted my attention was 12 animals representing 12 years in the oriental society.
I was wondered what these animals had meaning in this ritual and Buddhism.
Anyway, in oriental culture those 12 animals have very important meaning in daily life.
Below are the photos of Buddha and some of animals

It is a very colorful ritual and the banner perhaps denotes many meanings and one can just imagine the meaning of those animals like their association for the months of the year possibly or the cycle of it @slowwalker.

@slowwalker, I'm very impressive to see Korean cultural banners and drawings. It has lot of meanings about Buddhism.

It seemed one of the most important to understanding the meaning of this ritual. This ritual is said as a reenacting scene of Buddha’s teaching when he was alive.

Absolutely agree with above contents. These drawing of Shaka put in front stage and color combination on the drawing nicely. Huge peoples attend for do ritual. The banner's colors colorful. Also stage properties has spiritual looks. Impressive animal's drawing and their characters mentioned orient Buddhist culture. Thanks for the inspiration. See ya later.

A suitable stage is built in the temple so that the ritual will look better

I love this part of the world. Everything is so colourful.

I did not know that 12 animals representing 12 years in the oriental philosophy are related to Buddism. Well sometimes Buddism itself is so deep which is very hard to grasp the core principles.

The pictures are really amazing! I love how much you show us about traditions and cultures of other countries because these post are very enriching for those who do not know much about travel and other countries, thanks for sharing your excellent work

One thing I love the Koreans for is their culture. Very proud of it.
I watched a k-drama movie today, "children of a lesser God" and the girl was like, "ghosting".
I don't really believe Koreans believe in that.

Would have love it if I am able to visit Seoul , even for once.

Amazing photography @slowwalker,i like it.

The whole place looks so colourful and beautiful. The 12 animals representation is it something similar to tbe Chinese calender?
I am sure the rituals would be a delight to see

Wow great moments with full of life.

Korea is beautiful place!! I want to travel there!

I am also curious, what these animals mean in this Buddhist ritual and religion.

One thing I love about Asian cultures is their frank love of bright colors and their ability to use them harmoniously. What a beautiful setting for a ritual.

Wow cool pic my friends.. :)
