Hwasun Jucsu 1

전라남도 문화재자료 130호로 지정된 화순군 한천면 죽수서원은 조광조와 학포 양팽손을 배향하고 있다.

선조3년에 능성현령 조시중의 도움으로 지금의 자리에 서원을 짓고 죽수라는 사액을 받았다 한다.

1868년 흥선대원군의 서원철폐령으로 혈렸으나 1971년 제주양씨 후손들이 도곡에 죽수서원으로 복원하였고, 1983년 한양조씨 조국조를 중심으로 한 후손들이 현위치인 모산리에 복원을 추진 현재의 모습을 갖추었다.

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.
