Śarīra is a generic term referring to Buddhist relics, although in common usage it usually refers to pearl or crystal-like bead-shaped objects that are purportedly found among the cremated ashes of Buddhist spiritual masters. Relics of the Buddha after cremation are termed dhātu in the Mahaparinibbana Sutta. Śarīra are held to emanate or incite 'blessings' and 'grace' (Sanskrit: adhiṣṭhāna) within the mind stream and experience of those connected to them.

Master Jajang went to China to learn Buddhist sutras and receive higher ordination from Silla Dynasty. When he returned to the Korean peninsular he brought Buddha's relics which were relics of head bone from central Asia. The Buddha's relics were brought from India via central Asia originally. Master Jajang enshrined the Buddha's trlics in five places in Korea. Bongjeogam hermitage is one of Jeokmyeolbogung(Nirvana Dharma Palace적멸보궁 寂滅寶宮) in Korea. Bongjeongam Sarira's stupa is located on the highest elevation and the Buddha's relics were enshrined on the stupa. Throughout the year many Buddhists and general people come to Bongjeongam Hermitage and worship. From religious point of view, this religious worship is beyond controversy. We just go and meet the Buddha there. The historical Buddha was demised but his relics are alive here and there in the world such as India, Srilanka, China and Korea. Worshiping the Buddha's relics is also practice and praying for family's peace. When you vow the sarira stupa you vow your mind. Vowing the stupa is a sort of meditation. The stupa and your mind become one and in harmony. This is Buddhist practice.

​​In Korean Buddhist tradition, there is ​​​​a woonsunabja(운수납자 雲水衲子 cloud and water wanderer) monk. Many wandering monks came to Bongjeongam and practiced very hard for three months or more. A wandering monk should cope with living oneself. So Bongjeongam was very popular for wandering monks who were Seon(zen)monks. Nowdays most of vistors to Bongjeongam are devotees who make merits and praying in front of the Buddha's relics stupa all the night the through. A woonsunabja is like a Dhutanga who is 'renunciation', known in Thai as 'Thudong').

​Bongjeongam hermitage is open for anyone who wishes to practice meditation and pray for oneself or family. There is simple facilities for vistors such as dharma hall where you can practice and pray.
