Huwon Secret Garden : 창덕궁 후원(昌德宮後苑) 비원(祕苑) 


Huwon Secret Garden is a rear garden at the prospering virtue palace that flows naturally with nature and was used as a place of leisure by the member of the royal family. The location was only available at a limited time and date. It is one of the great privileges to share this one of the most beautiful places in South Korea with you guys.

It could have been better if it was 15 days ago, which was at the middle of the autumn blossom according to the tour guide, but I am absolutely satisfied with the place and the sceneries, especially the balance of the Korean traditional architectures and harmony of its position with the great nature.

If you ever have a plan to visit South Korea, this is a must you do not want to miss out. And, I proudly recommend the place to anyone who is interested and learning in Korean cultures and Korean history.

I had an interesting sentiment when I reflect the place regarding my current privilege and life as comparing the historical places, which would be impossible to visit the area around a century ago.

So, the more pictures are coming soon. Let me take this mini trip with you.

Love and Peace.

A Spiritual Guru: J. Krishnamurti

Jiddu Krishnamurti was one of the most popular spiritual gurus in Asia in the 70s and 80s. I have a chance to watch a video about his conversation with Chognam Trungpa Rinpoche regarding the topic, ‘What is meditation?’ I have a new perspective about his reputation as a spiritual guru. My father used to say,You can be disappointed if you met a famous book author personally.

Sometimes, it is better to keep the contact the author through the book itself. But, I have learned a lot of insight from his books. I still appreciate to his existence in my journey to find myself.
