Seonang-dang across from Seosu-seowon
in the Sobaek-san area
July 2006
the stream that runs beside the Seosu-sewon Neo-Confucian Academy, with pavilion on pine-tree hill
along the pathway, on the other (south) side
from the Academy, we found some modern
and a charming old wooden pavilion, where
the students used to rest and contemplate the
philosophical doctrines they had learned...
and then there was this old Seonang-dang [village-type guardian-spirit shrine],
an ancient form of San-shin and other spirit-worship, seemingly still in use here
