After looking around at Booyeo city, I headed for Yeosan area to look at Soodeok-sa temple again.
I had posted on this temple October last year.
The reason why I stopped by once again was for looking around Daewung-Jeon of Soodeok-sa temple more carefully.
I entered into the another direction on the way to Soodeok-sa temple.
At first, I saw the white Sarira pagoda seemed to be set on recently.
The style of the Sarira pagoda was so impressive. Its’ style was modern, unlike other sarira pagodas, it had a quite different style as usual.
It didn’t follow the traditional style.
I turned left and went along the road looking at fountains and springs
There was a temple for The Bodhisattva of Great Compassion at the end of the road.
I stood in front of the temple and was looking around. It was very calm place.
I slowly looked around this building. It seemed be built recently.
The ornament and the decorations were colorful.
And the patterns of the window were so impressive.
There was a hidden story in this temple.
In early era of 20 century, the women were very suppressed in the circumstance of Confucianism.
Women were not permitted to take part in Social activities.
Several pioneers challenged but failed, some women among them became the Buddhist monk to continue to fight against the social prejudice.
In this temple, very famous names of women pioneers were related.
The old tree seemed to witness the lives of those great pioneers.
