Sitting Gut is one of the Korean shamanic rites in which Gyeonggwae sits down and reads Mukyeong and gongs. It is called "Sitting Gut" or "Chungcheongdo Gut" or "Yangban Gut" because it is popular in Chungcheong-do and is especially popular among yangban.
This seated rite originated from Maengseung of the Goryeo Dynasty, and was formed when Myeongtongsi Prehistory, a Buddhist monk of the Joseon Dynasty, was abolished and served as Dokgyeongsa Temple in the private sector as a means of living. However, at the end of the Joseon Dynasty, a seated ritual was established today as a guest of honor, not a policeman.
Sitting Gut in Chungcheong-do is the hometown of Cheongju. So, in the past, a guest of honor from Cheongju was called to the nearest South Chungcheong Province as well as to Seoul for a sitting ritual. However, after the Korean War, the local seongut shamans who came to Cheongju were reading the book, and the contents were greatly reduced and transformed.
Shin Myeong-ho learned sitting ritual from Kim Jong-heon, a student of Yun Chi-seok, who lived in Mochung-dong, Cheongju, and lived in Jangsa-ri, Gadeok-myeon, Cheongwon-gun. However, due to Kim Jong-heon's poor landscape, he went to Hwagwansa Temple in Baekjoksan Mountain, Cheongwon-gun, where he learned Chinese literature and Buddhist scriptures at Mt. Lee Myeong-san, and also learned Seolwisulgyeong and Mukyeong from various senior police officers who were active in Cheongju.
Shin Myeong-ho was born in 1943 (born 1949 in resident registration) in Hwangcheong-ri, Namil-myeon, Cheongwon-gun, as the only son of Shin Man-sik and Ahn Ui-jun, and served as the head of the Chungcheongbuk-do branch of the Korean Gyeongsin Association for 10 years while living as a shaman.
As an important activity, he was responsible for 19 years for the performance of the Mokgye Sinje Bummu, Sodumoni Yongshin Gut, and Cheongju Cheonjon Gut, and won the Gut of the Paldo Gut Contest, hosted by the Korean Gyeongsin Association. In addition, the study of Chungbuk dance was found to be one of the representative shamans of Chungbuk.Muak has been introduced to the academic world.
Shin Myeong-ho is an adviser to the members and their disciples, usually performing ritual and military rites, and advises and instructs them on the great exorcism of the members and disciples, and reads the great scenery that they cannot read.
Shin Myeong-ho is characterized by the fact that he does not repeat the same scriptures and relatively flexible rhythms in the large gut, as well as the Great Views including Okchugyeong, the An Taek-gyeong to pray for blessings, the congratulatory scriptures to ward off disasters, and various congratulatory texts.
