A description of the experience

Korean Shamanist Ritual - Symbols and Dramas of Transformation - Daniel Kister

If the kut vision of the sacrality of nature can serve to stave off the threat of environmental pollution, the vision of the sacredness of childbirth can serve as a caution against too easy abortion.

The wonder is focused, not on a special person in the way that celebrations of light mark the birth of Jesus Christ and the Buddha.

It is a sacred wonder surrounding the birth of any ordinary human individual.
