"Kut" Shamanic Ritual
for the Spirit of Dr. Zo Zayong
4337, 7th Moon, 19th Day      or  9/03/2004
The Sam-shin-dang [Three Spirits Shrine] built by "Horae" Zo Zayong in 1988 as
the primary center of the Sam-shin-hoi-gwan [Three Spirits Association Compound]
at Sogni-san [Remote from the Mundane World Mountains] National Park.
Manshin Kim Keum-hwa, 72, Korea's
best-known Shaman, sets up to do a breif "
gut"
shamanic-ritual-ceremony for the spirit of Zo.  
Designated as a "Human National Treasure by
the Korean government, she has been a friend of
Dr. Zo for decades.  To have her with us was an
honor.  Horae's spirit spoke to each of us
through her.
