The study of activity and realistic recognition of an enlightened Buddhist monk  

The study of activity and realistic recognition of an enlightened Buddhist monk in modern times

- The focus of Ven. Dong-in Lee and Ven. Moobul -

Kim, Kyung-jib / Dongguk University

After the opening of a port in Korea in 1876, an enlightened Buddhist monk who changed the Korean buddhism by introducing a new civilization, appeared in Korean society. The works of Ven. Dong-in Lee and Ven. Moobul were known in details all over the world. The two Buddhist monks were able to work supported by the enlightenment party and Japanese Buddhism. They carefully studied world trends and the development of Japan.

They realized that the wealth and power of Western Europe and Japan were results of their successful development of industry and commerce, and therefore asserted that Korea would have to do the same in order to measure up to them.

These activities and realistic recognitions were results of their concerns of a restraint of an inflow of Western civilization and a progressive direction of Korea in modern times.

Nevertheless their views that only followed the Japanese style so that overcome of the limitation, corresponded with our un-diversified actuality. However it wasn't easy to foresee the changes of the enlightenment period at that time, and their serious and carefully analyzed views were rated highly.
