Gatbawi Buddha
This 4m tall seated Buddha as can be seen in the 2nd photo above is located at the peak of Mt Palgong. It is known as Gatbawi ( 갓바위) and devotees believe that it will grant one wish to those who pray to it ardently.  Getting to it involves  a steep climb up 1500 rock steps which some said took about an hour.  Devotees place coins into the crevices of the rock wall at the side of its base as they believe that their wish will be fulfilled if the coin fits.  A coin can be seen on the wall not far from Sang Hyun’s right hand (4th photo).

    To my dearest oppa,

    I wish I were a star,
    falling to make your dreams come true,
    is the best gift if I could ever give to you…..

    Every step you pick
    Every move you make
    Every bead of sweat you drip
    If still unable to reach the sky, then fly…….

    The sun would not chide
    The wind would not throw a tantrum
    The star would light up your path

    Every effort you make is your goal
    If anything is possible, then make it a true possibility
    Fly until you can touch the sky
    Fly till your dreams becoming true………

  7. Mimi says:

    OMG! How lovely , remarkable and memorable your wishes are dear Shandy! 😘😘thank you so much and I hope too, oppa knows how much we love him beyond words despite long distance between us .. Dear shandy: you make me fly to the sky and back 😀 what about oppa ? Thank you so much for your sincere feelings ✌️🌸💞

    As I see he feels good and he looks like being happy with his old friend. I hope it’s true! Otherwise, he could have a very important wish if he had went so faraway to ensure that his wish could be surely fulfilled! I do wish that his wish or dream could come true! It’s an interesting habit, I wonder if he could stick that coin into the rock. The place is beautiful and the stone sculptures are fantastic. I think it could be a restful and relaxing site both for body and soul! Although, that 1500 rock steps… 😀 And the view from the top of mountain could be wow!!!
