In the Footsteps of Wonhyo [Trailer]

We have been on the Wonhyo Pilgrimage now for three days, making our way from Gyeongju to Pyeongtaek in honor of the 7th century monk Wonhyo, who found enlightenment at the end of his journey. 25 days of September have been dedicated to a quest of selfdiscovery, and so far we have visited three temples – Bunwhang-sa, Gulgosa and Oeosa, and have interviewed the abbots of the last two. We have captured their wonderful words of wisdom and joyful laughter and will share that with you when the documentary film of the pilgrimage is released in April 2013 for Buddha’s birthday.

I have climbed up steep hills, walked alongside country roads and wandered through a field of wild flowers on my hike as I attempt to emulate the journey of Wonhyo, whom traversed the Korean Peninsula. This trailer is our first attempt at capturing, and transmitting the beauty and simplicity of Korea and Koreans, its nature and Korean Buddhism to you all. We are lucky to have been embraced by the outstanding Korean hospitality and helpful spirit, which is helping this project tremendously along the way.
