Doctrines

Overview of Doctrines

The doctrines of Daesoon jinrihoe are summarized as follows:

The tenets are Eumyang-hapdeok, Sinin-johwa, Haewon-sangsaeng and Dotong-jingyeong. The two principles of cultivation are 'quieting the mind' and 'quieting the body'. The three essential attitudes are sincerity, respectfulness and faithfulness. We aim to 'propagate Daesoon Truth throughout the whole world', 'save all people', 'promote national interests and welfare' and 'create an Earthly Paradise' through the 'renewal of human beings' and the 'Transformation of human spirit'.

Virtuous Concordance of Yin and Yang
This refers to the harmonious integration of the virtues of yin and yang in order to bring about the ideal relations among all beings. All beings exist in relationships of relativity with each other such as light and darkness, heaven and earth, and divine beings and human beings. Likewise, all social or human relations such as those between nation and individual, parent and child, and husband and wife are necessarily relationships characterized by mutual dependence. Yet, these relationships are often subject to conflict and disharmony. Therefore, the 'Harmony of Yin and Yang' refers the resolution of these conflicts and the creation of a harmonious state wherein human beings collaborate and help one another.
Harmonious Union between Divine Beings and Human Beings
This tenet means that divine beings and human beings can come to depend on each other in a harmonious and complementary way that transforms both into ideal beings. The human mind is an invisible gate through which divine beings come in and out. In this way, divine beings can harmonize with human beings to bring about various occurrences. Human beings come to achieve harmony with divine beings through their minds. When human beings keep a pure and unselfish mind through cultivation and live in harmony with others, they can interact with divine beings and eventually come to understand all matters in the universe and achieve all their aims at will.
Resolution of Grievances for Mutual Beneficence
This tenet details the whole process of preventing Cheok from arising and resolving forms of Cheok which are otherwise known as negative Karma as well as promoting the betterment of others. ​Cheok is a grudge that another person harbors against you. Generally, people provoke Cheok through their vanity and greed. This Cheok or negative Karma, created either in your present or past life, brings misfortune and blocks your way to success. Our cultivation is carried out to resolve all such Cheok or Karma by living within our means and promoting the betterment of others while practicing specific forms of spiritual cultivation created by Doju Jo Jeongsan. Then, all grudges and grievances piled up among human beings as well as between human beings and divine beings will be resolved and this will lead to the realization of ultimate peace and harmony for humankind.
Perfected Unification with Dao
This is the stage where both human beings and the world reach the true state of Dotong. This means that once mind and body are clean and pure, one can be unified with great divine beings and eventually reach human perfection. In this state, one can have a thorough and full understanding of everything in the universe with the ability to do everything in accordance with one's will. By doing so, an everlasting paradise eventually arises in this world.

Creeds

Creeds are the necessary conditions that disciples have to follow for their cultivation. In Daesoon jinrihoe, the category of 'Creeds' consists of 'Four Cardinal Mottos' and 'Three Essential Attitudes'.

They appear as follows:
Quieting the Mind
Restore your innate conscience which is unbiased, impartial and pure. Preserve this state to achieve the purpose of your cultivation.

Quieting the Body
Conduct yourself in accordance with righteousness and propriety. In other words, do not act with vanity or selfishness.

Reverence for Heaven
Bear in mind that Sangje (the Supreme Being) is always with you. That is, serve Him with utmost respect and sincerity.

Cultivation
While calming down your mind and body, focus your reverent mind on Sangje by concentrating on the lower abdomen (the elixir field) through the recitation of incantations. In other words, remember to show respect toward Sangje while maintaining thoughts consistent with reverence and sincerity. Recite incantations with all your heart to achieve the goal of integration with Sangje.
Sincerity
Sincerity is matter of reflecting consistently on yourself as you focus your efforts upon noble endeavors. Being sincere means maintaining a mind that is continuously concerned with detecting and correcting any insufficiencies in your exertions or dedication, as doing so will enable you to complete your task.

Respectfulness
Respectfulness is a matter of conducting yourself in a decent manner.

Faithfulness
Faithfulness is a matter of making up your mind about something and then confidently moving forward without any change or deviation from your original intention. This involves committing yourself to the highest level of devotion in order to reach your anticipated end.

Aims

The spiritual objectives of Daesoon jinrihoe include the following:
Guarding against Self-deception – Transformation of Human Spirit
This means reaching the highest stage of mental attainment wherein one has progressed to a state free from self-deception. In other words, it means restoring an innate conscience which is honest, true and devoid of greed or any partiality.
Realizing Earthly Immortality – Renewal of Human Beings
This is a process wherein human beings gain renewal and thereby become Earthly-Immortals* who keep harmonious relations with other people and interact with divine beings.

*Earthly-Immortals : perfected human beings who have attained divine status and immortality through cultivation.

Creation of Earthly Paradise – Re-creation of the World
This is a process of turning the world into an Earthly Paradise. Earthly Paradise is a world wherein everyone lives by the principle of mutual beneficence. In this world, people live together in perfect harmony devoid of grudges while promoting the betterment of others.
