General Overview

  • The Forest of No-Mind

    ‘Abandon your prejudices and preconceptions — to enlighten your mind.’
    In Buddhism, musim (無心 “no mind”) does not imply that “There is no mind.” or encourage visitors to “Empty their minds.” Rather, it refers to a state where your mind obtains a broadened perspective, free from prejudices and preconceptions.
    “The Forest of No-Mind” is an exhibition that offers a visual reproduction of the lifestyle led by Baegun Hwasang and Myodeok as well as his contemporaries, thereby helping visitors to understand the content and concept of Jikji more easily. The exhibition also allows them to feel the spirit of Jikji while enjoying the exhibition in a relaxed manner. With the space imbued with a dreamy and fantastic vibe, you will be able to rediscover your soul in this Forest of No-Mind.


  • Reproduced clothes and Buddhist robes from the Goryeo period, worn by Baegun Hwasang and Myodeok

  • Materials that visually reproduce the life of the Goryeo people; and excerpts from the Sermons by Buddhist Monk Baegun Hwasang
