Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
From the Columbia Anthology of Traditional Korean Poetry – edited by Peter Lee
Yi Chehyon [1287 – 1367]
After the Snow in the Mountain
The paper quilt grows cold, the temple light dim;
The novice has not rung a bell all through the night.
He will start grumbling if I open the door so early.
But I have to see the garden pine laden with snow.
