Baegwha Buddha's Career
Baegwha Buddha was born in the Water-Dragon year in Korea.
In eighteen years old, He strived to solve the great problem of Life and Death.
"What is life and what is death? Is there anything after death?
He had no taste on everything he encountered.
When He entered the university(Seoul National University, Teacher's
college, the department of Korean language and literature),
Baegwha Buddha often meditated in the valleys around the campus.
He practiced Yoga meditation and Buddhistic Vipasyana Watching Method and studied Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Taoism, and so forth.
He accepted every religion in open mind.
He did not belong to any religion and at the same time belonged to every religion.
At the age of thirty( May, 1981), He practiced Buddhistic Watching Method[four division Vipasyana or Watching Method] and was enlightened by Pure Mind or Self.
He knew that His mind was Pure, utterly Pure.
It seemed to be the real peaceful state of Mind, and anxiety was
Zen-Buddhists call it Self-Realization or Enlightenment. This state of mind is Zen-buddhism's ultimate Goal. They say that the Self-Realization(in buddhistic word 'Kyen Seong') is the state of Buddhahood.
But Baegwha Buddha intuitively understood that this was not the Ultimate Truth which Sakyamuni Buddha had attained three thousand years ago in India.
So He strived to attain the Ultimate Truth which Sakayamuni Buddha had called ANUTTARA-SAMYAK-SAMBODHI[The Ultimate-Equal-Real Truth], that is, NIRVANA[with physical body Nirvana] and SUNYA[The Full Vacuum Wisdom].
At the age of thirty four(Spring, 1985), He experienced that His heart
was melting down in His inner body.
At the time He felt that everything was united with Love.
But He knew that the blooming of His heart's Love (anahata chakra's Enlightening) was not the Ultimate Goal of His Life.
He quitted His job as a teacher in high school and went into the Ji-ri mountain(meaning Wisdom Supreme Mountain) [in 1986] which was well known as huge one in Korea.
[After His graduation of the university He had a job as a Korean language teacher in high school. After His daily work, He meditated regularly and practiced spiritual training and often fasted two more weeks at one time]
After entering Ji-ri mountain He practiced five years spiritual training.
At the age of thirty seven(February, 1988) He experienced the
infinite Consciousness. He abandoned every particle of anticipation
and hopes for helping other human beings. In His eyes all Human
beings seemed to be pitiful ones.
After His giving up helping these people, He suddenly experienced
the infinite Consciousness for three days.
Now He sighed "Oh the Ultimate Truth is this. This state is It that world's great Ones like Lao-tzu and Confucius had achieved."
He sobbed many days for Compassion on all human beings.
But after a while He understood that this state also was not the
Ultimate State which Sakyamuni Buddha had achieved.
After the experience, five years elapsed practicing meditation every day.
At the age of forty two, after fourteen days of fasting, on the tenth of August [August 10, 1993], at last He reached THE ULTIMATE STATE OF TRUTH which every Buddhas had achieved in the past, and will achieve in the future.
The real Self or the infinite Consciousness melted away in His body.
He understood cleary that His reincarnational cycles was finished
forever and forever.
No more life and death could affect His Great Truth Enlightened Supreme Being of NON-BEING.
Finally He achieved The Ultimate-Equal-Real Truth that was called as ANUTTARA-SAMYAK-SAMBODHI of Sakyamuni Buddha.
That night at 10 o'clock countless numbers of stars in heaven brightly twinkled and fell down from the sky.
In the west sky two or three meters above the mountain, there was two bright stars. Especially they were seen blazingly twinkling in the sky. One was flashing brightly and suddenly disappeared. After a while the other was also flashing clearly and disappeared.
This phenomenon was the sign of Heaven proving two Buddhas of
Maitreya[Merciful Buddhas] appearing on earth.
And He could not sleep at all through the night afterwards. His body was emanating numerous rays of Spiritual Enlightened Subtle Light. This Subtle Light penetrated the whole World. He felt the Subtle Light as clearly as the sun rays.
This Light could melt away original Sin of human beings.
This Blissful, Non-sleeping and Subtle Light-emitting State continued for half and a month. It is known that this State was continued for forty nine days in Sakyamuni Buddha.
In this way He achieved the Buddhahood. And He became BUDDHA, the Supreme Enlightened One.
He was called BAEGWHA BUDDHA[The White Blooming Buddha].
He was destined as Merciful Buddha or MAITREYA BUDDHA, 'that is', Male MAITREYA BUDDHA by the Divine Will [the Providence of Supreme God].
After His becoming BUDDHA, He fasted for fifty days for fighting with the power of darkness, and conquered the king of darkness, Mara or Satan, who controlled this present dark or corrupt World.
Now Baegwha Buddha realized that His Real Being or Essence was God Itself.
After His meeting with Anna Buddha, He knew the relationship
between them by previous life reading and realized their Mission in
this Transmuting Age.
