속리산(충북 보은):
In the year 786, when
진표 (a buddhist monk in Shilla dynasty)
arrived to
속리산 all the cows that were plowing stopped and
bowed to him. When farmers saw this, they were ashamed that
even the animals recognized the greatness of
진표. So they
renounced the egoistic minds and followed after
진표 in the
mountains to get trained. This is where the name "
속리" came
from. It means "to leave the world behind."
