Sansinje
Introduction

A festival of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Shamanism.
The festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year as a festival dedicated to equality and peace for every Korean. Since ancient times, Koreans revered mountains and worshipped nature. The Sansinje (Mountain God Ritual) of Gyeryongsan is a prime example of such tradition. Every dynasty that existed in Korea saw Gyeryongsan Mountain as a miraculous and sacred mountain, and the Gyeryongsan Sansinje includes the rituals of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Shamanism.
