• A Work of Renewal for Sahng-jeh-nim’s Portrait
  • While staying at Gyung-suk’s house, Sahng-jeh-nim drew the shape of a person, pasted it on a wall as a spirit tablet, and made preparations as if for memorial rites.
  • He then said to the disciples, “Do the embracing-heaven-and-caressing-earth bow four times and silently pray for what you wish.” Facing the disciples, Sahng-jeh-nim stood in front of the picture.
  • When the ceremony was over, He asked, “Whom did you pray to?”
  • “We prayed to You,” the disciples replied.
  • Sahng-jeh-nim laughed. “While still alive, I received memorial rites. This is how it will be in the future.”
  • He then said, “I have received four bows, and I will bow once.” Then, He bowed.
