• Sahng-jeh-nim Retrieves the Soul of a Drowned Person
  • One day, Sahng-jeh-nim took Hyung-yul and Ho-yun to the foot of a waterfall at Geum-sahn Temple and there conducted a work of renewal.
  • After a time, they heard a girl sobbing sadly somewhere and calling out, “Brother, older brother . . . .”
  • Hyung-yul shouted out, “Who is there, calling out for her brother?”
  • “Her older brother fell into the water, and she wants him to answer so she can tell if he somehow survived,” Ho-yun told him.
  • “That is not correct,” Sahng-jeh-nim said.
    “Then who’s that girl?” Ho-yun asked.
  • Sahng-jeh-nim explained, “Someone who drowned after falling headfirst into the water. She is mournfully calling out for her older brother.”
  • Sahng-jeh-nim performed memorial rites with a food offering and gave a royal decree to the spirits to retrieve the soul of the sister.
