송광사 우화루

지금 남아 있는 기록에 의하면 송광사는 신라말 혜린(慧璘)선사에 의해 창건되었다고 한다.

창건 당시의 이름은 송광산 길상사(吉祥寺)였으며 100여 칸쯤 되는 절로 30, 40명의 스님들이 살 수 있는 그리 크지않은 규모의 절이었다고 한다. 그 뒤 고려 인종때 석조(釋照)대사께서 절을 크게 확장하려는 원을 세우고 준비하던 중 타계하여 뜻을 이루지 못하였다.

이후 50여년 동안 버려지고 페허화된 길상사가 중창되고 한국불교의 중심으로 각광받게 된 것은 불일 보조국사 지눌스님의 정혜결사가 이곳으로 옮겨지면서 부터이다.
지눌스님은 9년 동안의(명종 27년1197년 ~ 희종 원년) 중창불사로 절의 면모를 일신하고 정혜결사운동에 동참하는 수많은 대중을 지도하여 한국불교의 새로운 전통을 확립하였다.
이 때부터 송광사가 한국불교의 중심으로 각광받기 시작하였다. 그 동안 정유재란, 6.25사변 등 숱한 재난을 겪었으나 지속적인 중창불사로 지금의 위용을 갖출 수 있게 되었다.

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.
