Geumganggyeongsamgahae Treasure No. 772-(1)
The work is a translation of the three items excerpted from ‘Geumganggyeongogahae’, authored by Hamheodang Deuktong, a renowned Buddhist monk in the early Joseon Dynasty. The items included in the translated version are: Yabu’s Song, Jonggyeong’s Jegang, and Gihwa’s Seoleui. The original text of Geumganggyeong is also provided in the annotations to Geumganggyeongeonhae. According to the postscript written by Han Gye-hi and Gang Hi-maeng, the book was translated and completed by King Munjong and King Sejo under the order of King Sejong. It was, however, Queen Jaseong, the wife of King Sejo, who persuaded Monk Hakjo to revise and edit the text and print the first 300 copies using a metallic press. One of the Chinese classics, the book was published in the thirteenth year (1482) of King Seongjong’s reign and is an Eulhaejabon consisting of five books and five volumes.
