A description of the experience
From the Columbia Anthology of Traditional Korean Poetry – edited by Peter Lee
From Songs of Flying Dragons
If perverse theories of the western barbarians
Threaten you with sin and allure with bliss,
Remember, my Lord,
His judgment and orthodoxy.
A millennium ago,
Heaven chose the north of the Han.
There they accumulated goodness and founded the state.
Oracles foretold a myriad years;
May your sons and grandsons reign unbroken.
But you can secure the dynasty only
When you worship heaven and benefit the people.
Ah, you who will wear the crown, beware.
Can you depend upon your ancestor
When you go hunting by the waters of the Lo?
The source of the experienceTaejo of Joseon
Concepts, symbols and science items
Activities and commonsteps
SuppressionsBelieving in the spiritual world
Squash the big I am
Peacemaking and diplomacy
Questioning and doubting all existing beliefs
Restraining your use of power
Serving others [charity]
