“How would we know the loftiness of heaven without the moon and the stars, How would we use the land, no matter how vast, without the trees and stones?
Having temple halls with no paintings or designs, Is like not recognizing heaven though it exists And being unable to use the land though it is vast.”
Yongam Chejo (1713-1779) From
“Dancheong Record of Geungnakjeon at Sinheungsa Temple, Mt. Seoraksan”
