Introduction

Musangsa integrates a variety of meditation practices, in harmony with the tradition of the international Kwan Um School of Zen, which is guided by the teachings of Master Songshan. These practices encompass seated meditation, chanting, bowing practicing, and private question-and-answer sessions known as Gong-an Dok Cham between the master and disciple.

Through these simple practices, one can consider engaging in a moment-to-moment cultivation of “Only Don’t know,” returning to our true nature. Letting go of attachment to my thoughts and habits in each moment and adhering to the principle of “Just Doing” when engaging in something – that’s the essence.

While the practice takes a physical form, establishing a firm mental foundation through it enables not only the regulation of one’s own emotions and situations but also the ability to assist others facing challenges.

Zen Maditation Hall

 

Zen Meditation Hall(Sunbang)

  • 230㎡ (i.e., 2,490 ft²)
  • Reinforced concrete in the Korean traditional building style

Dormitory

 

Dormitory(Yosachae)

  • 9㎡ (i.e., 8,267 ft²)
  • 40 single rooms
    • small rooms (35): approximately 10㎡ (one single bed and mini bathroom)
    • large rooms (5): approximately 17㎡ (one single bed, mini bathroom and wardrobe)
  • One public restroom for both men and women adjacent to the Zen Meditation Hall for retreat participants
  • Two indoor warehouses
  • One mechanical room and one public laundry room
  • Approximately 496㎡ yard in the front of the Zen Meditation Hall

The building would extend in a long, curved “ㄷ shape,” harmoniously aligned with the height of the Zen Meditation Hall. The final section would feature an additional floor, giving the impression of a two-story structure. This unique design would be carefully crafted to preserve the existing terrain.

A convenient indoor hallway would connect the Zen Meditation Hall and the accommodations, allowing easy movement between the dormitory and the meditation practice spaces.

진정한 나’를 찾아

나 자신의 인생은 물론,

모든 고통받는 존재를 돕는 불교의 가르침.

무상사는 숭산행원 큰스님의 원력를 이어 나가기 위해

사부대중 모두의 수행 공간인 추가 선원 건립을 추진합니다.

부디 동참하시어 세세생생 보살도의 발원을 원만 성취하시기 바랍니다.

 

 

숭산행원 큰스님의 원력으로 전 세계로 전해진 부처님의 가르침인 선불교. 그 수행 도량으로 한국 계룡산에 세워진 무상사에 지난 23년간 전 세계로부터 수많은 수행자들이 큰스님의 가르침을 통해 선불교를 수행하고 진리를 깨치고자 찾아왔고 지금도 계속되고 있습니다.

그러나 선방과 숙소 등이 부족하고 제반 시설들이 미비하여 수행자들을 적극적으로 수용하는 데 어려움이 많았습니다. 여러 가지로 어려운 여건이지만, 숭산 선사님의 전법 원력을 계승 발전시켜 나가기 위해 모두의 수행 공간인 선원과 숙소 신축이 선행되어야 하기에 이를 적극 추진하고자 합니다.
