Daegwangbojeon Hall of Magoksa Temple

5. Daegwangbojeon Hall of Magoksa Temple

[Man]
Daegwangbojeon Hall is the central Dharma hall of Magoksa Temple along with Daeungbojeon Hall. It was rebuilt in 1785 after burning down in a fire in 1782. The Daegwangbojeon Hall is enshrined with the Vairocana Buddha as its main Buddha.

[Woman]
Vairocana Buddha is a Buddha of light that is not visible to the naked eye. This Buddha is sitting on the platform of a lotus flower with a thousand petals in a full lotus posture (both legs crossed). Each of the 1,000 petals bloomed around the flower platform of Buddha represents 10 billion lands.

[Man]
Vairocana Buddha is the highest Buddha served in the Avatamsaka. Vairocana Buddha, who serves Buddha Sakyamuni as his manifestation, is known to appear in variable forms depending on the time, place, and person. It is said that Vairocana Buddha is not visible to the eye of those caught by illusion, but he is available anywhere if you think in a single mind and do not doubt with a clear mind.

[Woman]
The Buddhist painting hung behind the Buddha of Daegwangbojeon is the Painting of the Vulture Peak Assembly. This depicts Sakyamuni Buddha preaching at Yeongchuksan Mountain. Created in 1788, this painting portrays six Bodhisattvas, ten disciples, the dragon king and princess of the dragon king, and the Four Guardian Kings, centering on the Buddha Sakyamuni. On the back wall of the Vairocana Buddha is an enshrinement of the Avalokitesvara in a white robe, which captures the characteristics of Joseon paintings in the late 18th century, and it is popular as an Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva that evokes joy to viewers.

[Man]
There is a story about a cripple that has been handed down for a long period of time regarding the Daegwangbojeon Hall of Magoksa Temple.

[Woman]
The cripple had never walked properly in his life. He prayed and prayed to Buddha as his last resort. Desperately hoping to be able to walk to end the life of a cripple.

[Cripple]
"Please hear my prayer and show your great mercy. Please allow me to walk to end my life as a cripple. Please don't let me live this miserable life anymore. I beg of you with all my heart."

[Woman]
He began to weave a reed mat as his offering for the Buddha. As the days went by, he gradually finished weaving the reed mat, and his prayer continued to grow stronger and deeper. As he prayed, he had a realization. He began to appreciate being alive now rather than walking with his two feet.

[Cripple]
"That little wildflower blooming along the street is also a life. I will lead a good life just like that wildflower. The Buddha must have a plan for each and every part of creation. My life must also be under the will of the Buddha. Thank you for letting me realize this."

[Woman]
His prayer had already reached its 100th day. The reed mat to be offered had been completed, too. There was something he realized while praying for a hundred days. It was gratitude and repentance for his own life. With gratitude toward the Buddha, he crawled towards the Buddha, dragging his useless legs, and paid his respects with the utmost sincerity that he could, and left the Dharma hall. Then, a mysterious thing happened. He could stand on his own feet, which he had never been able to do in his whole life.

[Man]
Daegwangbojeon Hall of Magoksa Temple, where such tales are told, has become a popular place due to its spirituality.
