Chapter Summary

The author was reminded of the fact that in all matters, not only reminiscences, there is a great difference between thinking vaguely about doing something and actually doing it. On his journey from Kyŏngsŏng to Wŏnsan he met two other monks, one from his home temple of Paektamsa and one from Mahayŏn in the Kuŏmgang Mountains. Before long, five or six young Korean men, dressed in Western style suits, started heading toward the author, calling out to him as they came. He stood waiting and when they reached him they grabbed hold of the him and asked, 'Are you the person who arrived on the boat yesterday evening?' the author replied that he was and showed them ŏm's name card. Only the Chinese man comforted him with a few words and told him about the misconduct of the Koreans living in the Russian Far East.
