Description

There are two sūtra pillars at Huiyin Gaoli Si (慧因高麗寺) inscribed with the vows from the chapter on Entering the World System of Inconceivable Liberation and the Practice and Vows of Samantabhadra in the 40-roll Buddhāvataṃsaka-sūtra (Dafangguangfo huayan jing ru busiyi jietuo jingjie Puxian xingyuan pin 大方廣佛華嚴經入不思議解脫境界普賢行願品). See Taishō no. 293, vol. 10: 897a2-848b9. These pillars were constructed in 2007 as part of a recent renovation of the temple to highlight connections between Korean and Chinese monks who admired this particular version of the Buddhāvataṃsaka-sūtra translated by the Kashmiri monk Prajñā (Bore 般若) in 798, with Chengguan (澄觀, ca. 738–839) and Yuanzhao (圓照, fl. 766–804). Two stone sutra pillars with the same vows stand in front of the Hall of the Guardian Kings (Tianwang dian 天王殿) at Huiyin Temple. This temple primarily celebrates Ŭich’ŏn (義天, 1055–1101), who stayed at this temple in 1086 and studied this text with Jinshui Jingyuan (晉水淨源, 1011–1088) at Huiyin Monastery (i.e., the Huiyin Gaoli Si, 慧因高麗寺).
