This temple complex is located in Yeoju, Gyeonggi Province. Surrounded by low mountains, the temple complex has a warm and cozy ambience. With a mountain behind it and Namhan River in front of it, the geographical site of Yeoju Headquarters temple complex perfectly qualifies as a propitious site. This temple complex was built on the best type of energy hub recognized in Fengshui.
The temple complex was built in November 1986, and the current Main Sanctuary Building (Bonjeon) and Daesoon Assembly Hall were added in 1990 due to a rapid increase in the number of disciples. As the number of followers grew, the headquarters was moved to this location back in 1993. It was from this moment that Daesoon Jinrihoe truly started to gain recognition from the general public as a representative Korean religion. There are 40 buildings harmoniously arranged in their stately glory on a site of 165,000㎡. Most major rituals and events such as Holy Works (Gongbu)*
, Lecture (Sugang)*
, and Devotional Offering (Chiseong)*
are performed at this location.
*Holy Works (Gongbu) : the most important form of spiritual cultivation which is performed by a team of 36 participants who devotedly recite certain incantations for 24 hours without a break. It has been carried out since the Summer Solstice of 1991 and continues into the present day.
*Lecture (Sugang) : a three-day educational course performed by a team of 72 members to enhance their qualifications as disciples..
*Devotional Offerings(Chiseong): a ritual ceremony to show one's gratitude with utmost sincerity for the grace of Sangje and other great deities.
