The great Korean Seon [Meditational Buddhism] Master Hyegeun Na-ong Hwasang Wangsa
(1320-76) studied
Seon under various masters in south China, and then under the great Indian
Master Dhyanabhadra (the most important monk teaching in China throughout the 14th century)
at
Wutai-shan, where he met fellow student-monk Jacho Muhak-daesa (7 years younger).   
Upon his return to Goryeo he became abbot of Woljeong-sa here at Odae-san in 1360, and had
a mystical experience of Munsu-bosal.  In 1371 he became abbot of Yangju Hoeam-sa (Muhak
lived together with him there), being simultaneously appointed
Wangsa [Teacher of the King]
and head of Jogye Seon Order.  In 1376 he created the
Munsu-hoe [Association dedicated to
the Bodhisattva of Wisdom] together with Muhak, but died soon afterwards.
