Kannon, the Bodhisattva of Compassion, is the person who “hears the cries of the realm” and vows to “assist somebody in distress.” because the writer embarks at the pilgrimage path that extends from the Japan Sea to the Pacific Ocean, during the historic urban of Kyoto and the trendy urban of Osaka, and to the various mountain tops in among, she permits the certain features and sacred presence of every position to bring about proper Buddhist instructing; letting pass of attachment, considering impermanence, accomplishing correct livelihood, being of provider, and different teachings present in vintage Buddhism. The dharma, or doctrines of common fact, intertwines with wealthy descriptions of mountain hikes, distant temples, smooth Shugendo practices, sacred icons and the author’s non secular insights.

용산사가 오늘날에는 대만인 뿐 아니라 대만을 찾는 여행객에게도 한번쯤은 들러야할 관광지로 주목받는 이유는 무엇일까? 대만 전역에 셀 수도 없이 크고 작은 사당, 사찰, 사원이 있음에도 불구하고, 왜 용산사가 특별한가? 그 이유를 하나하나 파헤쳐 보는 것은 단순히 대만의 유명한 사찰을 방문하는 것을 넘어서, 대만인과 대만문화를 이해하는 계기가 될 것이다. 첫 번째, 용산사는 대만 최고(最古)의 사찰이다.
