Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism

The three temples dedicated to Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva, who saves sentient beings from the ocean of suffering, are invariably located near the ocean. In India, Mt. Potalaka on the southern coast is the permanent residence of Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva. In China, it is Chōon Cave on scenic Putuo Island in the East China Sea. In land-locked Tibet, the Kichu River is regarded as an ocean, and Lhasa, located in the Kichu River Basin, is considered to be Potalaka.
In Korea, the three holy sites dedicated to Avalokiteshvara are all located by the sea: Hongyeonam Hermitage at Naksansa Temple on the east coast; Bomunsa Temple on the west coast; and Boriam Hermitage along the south coast.
