Dahn Yoga Korean Culture Lesson for April

We grow from being an eorini, whose eol is young, to being an eoreun, whose eol has matured, to being an eoreushin, whose eol is divinely bright. I believe these three words contain the genuine meaning and direction of our lives.

Gilbert, AZ (PRWEB) April 26, 2013

Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness, now features a new “Learn Korean” segment for practitioners in their newsletter, Dahn Yoga Life. Each monthly issue offers an in-depth look at a word or phrase that offers both vocabulary and understanding about the Korean culture. The April issue of the segment explains the word “eoreushin.”

In last month’s issue, Dahn Yoga Life explained the word “eol”, which was defined as “a bright, right spirit.” This month offers expanded understanding of the word’s many variations, especially as it has come to define a person’s age and spiritual maturity within derivative words that “eol” is used in.

For example, the word “eorini” describes a child, or someone with a youthful “eol” that has not yet matured. The variations are explained as they relate to other stages of life such as adult and old age.

“We grow from being an eorini, whose eol is young, to being an eoreun, whose eol has matured, to being an eoreushin, whose eol is divinely bright. I believe these three words contain the genuine meaning and direction of our lives,” states Lynn Moon in the Dahn Yoga Life article.

Especially charming is the insight into the respectful view on aging held in the Korean society. Dahn Yoga Life illustrates this respect with the story of how the City of Seoul announced in September of 2012 that an existing compound word, “eoreushin” created from “eol”, and “shin” would be used to express respect and honor for the elderly people in their aging population and for the life knowledge that each carries with them. Where the aging may have previously been referred to and addressed with words that mean, for example, “old man”, they will now be honored and respected with the new, more proper term.

With simple definitions offered in the “Learn Korean” segment, the practitioner’s understanding of the Korean culture as well as Dahn Yoga principles will expand and deepen. In addition to this month's issue, a treasure of previous articles is available online as well.
