Torrent description

Zen Buddhism - In Search of Self
This beautifully produced and photographed documentary takes the viewer on a journey to Zen Buddhism enlightenment. The camera follows the two dozen Buddhist nuns to the remote Baek Hung Temple, in the mountains of Palgong, in Daegu, South Korea. They are practicing a 1000-year old tradition of 90-day meditation, fasting and contemplation. The goal is to attain enlightenment. The film is the first-ever to document the practice of Dong Ahn Geo (Winter Zen Retreat) at the historical temple. Baek Hung Temple was built by the Great Monk Hyeocheol, a revered figure during the reign of King Kyungmoon in the Shilla Dynasty (AD 57 935). The temple is austere, serene and has the look of being timeless. The wooden columns in the buildings are cleaned tree trunks. The floors inside and out are polished and without blemish. The temple and its surrounding area are founded on order, harmony and tranquility. The environment encourages spirituality. The Buddhist nuns come to the temple in November and stay until the lunar New Year, which falls in late January or early February, depending on the lunar calendar. The cold climate and tranquil setting make the retreat that much more intense. The underlying Zen question (Cham Sum) is Shi Shin Ma What is this? Cham Sun is the contemplation of the profound questions (Hwa Du) to attain enlightenment. To achieve this, the nuns follow a rigorous routine of meditation, fasting and exercises. After initial meditation, the nuns are ready for Yong Mung Juin, the seven-day ritual of sitting and meditating without rest of sleep. This rigorous practice commemorates Buddha s own enlightenment. Sung Do or the Way of Enlightenment is a Buddhist discipline practiced for centuries. The focus is inward, stripping the material to find the spiritual. As the 90-day retreat winds down with the lunar New Year, there is more secular activity at the temple. Celebratory rituals and foods are prepared. The nuns make a pilgrimage to other temples and meet Buddhist monks. There are friendly games. The nuns show their playful human side. The DVD quality is quite good. The English subtitles are informative and unobtrusive. The photography captures the tranquil tone of the film with images of the temple nestled against the mountains, the running stream, and the harmony of the natural with the spiritual. When the nuns go hiking along the mountain trails, it is a spiritual journey. Gathering wood is a gentle process. Every action, every scene reflects tranquility. The routine of daily cleaning and cooking is itself a process rather than a chore. For these Buddhist nuns, Sung Do is clearly the path
