The sheep touched by a sermon and Baegyangsa(Temple)

There once was a small temple, where the monks and people gathered and listened to very touching and impressive sermons. One day, a sheep came down to the temple from Baekhakbong to listen to the sermons. So impressed, the sheep cried and bowed to the priest who had just finished his sermon. “I was originally a God, but sinned and was made into a sheep as punishment. Now, after listening to your sermon I will be reincarnated into heaven.“ said the sheep. Then, the sheep disappeared, and from that point on this temple was called “Baegyangsa(White sheep temple)” for enlightening a “white sheep.”
