Haejin: Why have we all left the world?

Kibong: It's because in the world, there is no peace or freedom of the heart.

Hyegok: You must keep the Koan between your teeth even if you fall into a furnace. The one who has decided to solve the Koan must go to the end. When you reach Enlightenment you will find freedom like the breeze on the mountaintop and a peace unshakable like a rock in a storm. The Place where you stood today can be the Land of Perfect Bliss itself.

Kibong: His name is Hyegok. Although he is far away from us in the mountains, he is like a beacon lamp. To be effective, mustn't a beacon be situated high up and far away?
