  • 1 Written here are the names Seokchan (釋璨) and Daljam (達湛), who participated in the publishing of Jikji. In fact, this surviving book was published posthumously in 1377, three years after the passing of Reverend Baegun in 1374. As such, it was these two senior disciples of Baegun who played the largest role in ensuring Jikji come to light.

    The entire book is replete with pause marks in red as well as summary notes.
    In particular, on a margin near the end of an imprint on the last part of the book, an unknown commentator left a particularly long impression of their thoughts:

    Be they standing or sitting, it follows them.
    All things will clearly manifest themselves,
    But they are elusive, their traces already nonexistent.
    Unbelievers, take a careful look!
    Who is the person talking about this?
