JinBukSa (North Defense Temple)
Korea
There are four defense temples in Jeonju. They are called DonGoSa (East defense temple), SeoGoSa (West defense temple), NamGoSa (South defense temple), and JinBukSa (North defense temple). This is the North defense temple.. 대한불교조계종 제17교구 본사인 금산사의 말사이다. 신라 말 도선(道詵 827∼898)이 창건하였으며, 창건 당시에는 북고사(北固寺)라고 하였다. 이후 조선 후기까지의 연혁은 전해지지 않는다. 약 200년 전 관찰사 이서구(李書九)가 풍수지리설에 따라 전주성 북쪽을 보강하기 위하여 이 절에 나무를 심고 절 이름을 진북사로 바꾸었다고 전한다. 1922년 김성근(金性根)이 중건하였다. 건물로 극락전과 미륵전·산신각·요사 등이 남아 있고, 유물로 창건 당시의 것으로 전해지는 석조미륵불상이 남아 있다. 이중 미륵불상에 관한 전설이 전해 내려온다. 1930년대에 절 인근에 사는 한 노파의 꿈에 미륵이 나타나 '나는 전주천변에 있는데, 현재 매우 괴로우니 편안하게 옮겨주면 소원을 들어주겠다'고 하였다. 다음날 노파가 나룻배를 타고 이 절 아래의 전주천변 늪으로 가서 이 불상을 찾아냈다. 몇 년 후 이 절의 신도들이 미륵전을 짓고 미륵불을 남향으로 세웠는데, 이번에는 미륵불이 일꾼들의 꿈에 나타나 동향으로 옮겨달라고 하였다. 그 일꾼이 무거워서 옮기기 어렵다고 하자, 손만 대면 움질일 것이라고 하였다. 다음날 주지와 일꾼이 미륵불을 모신 불단에 손을 대자 저절로 동향으로 옮겨졌다고 한다. 캐시가 있는 근처 산신각은 아기가 없는 부부가 소원을 빌면 아기가 생긴다는 영험이 있기로 유명한 곳이다.

More About Korea

Korea is one of the oldest continuous civilizations in the world with over five thousand years of history. According to the original creation myth, the world we live in today is the work of the Heavenly Prince Hwanung, whose father was the King of Heaven.The Heavenly Prince asked his father to give him some land to govern, so the Father sent him down to Mount Taebaek. With him the Prince brought the Minister of Clouds, the Earl of Rain and the Chancellor of Wind. They also brought three thousand helpers.Under the shade of a sandalwood tree the Prince founded a holy city called Sinsi, the City of God. He put his Ministers in charge of three hundred and sixty areas of human culture, teaching them to grow crops and to make laws concerning what is good and what is evil.A tiger and a bear living in a nearby cave saw this city and desperately wanted to become human. Every day they came to the sandalwood tree at the center of the city to pray fervently for becoming humans.Hwanung saw their devotion and gave them instructions to remain in the cave and fast for one month, eating nothing but garlic and mugwort. The tiger was too impatient to stand the long and boring days in the cave, so he gave up and left, but Bear maintained the fast. At the end of the month she was transformed into a beautiful woman who became the mother of the Korean people.Her first son was Don-gun, the First King of the Korean people. When Don-Gun passed on the throne to his own son, he became a Mountain God. It is interesting that mountain gods are still worshipped today in Korea.Text by Steve Smith.
