 Gihwa's Analysis of the Relationship between the Worded and Wordless Teachings: The Ogahae seorui
Despite the antipathy toward early Seon on the part of the Silla scholastic Buddhist community, the same scholastic Buddhism contained within it principles that would end up serving as the bases for the reconciliation of the two positions.
The Goryeo regime, which had endured for over four centuries, but had become corrupt in its latter period, was on the verge of collapse, and as the leading Buddhist figure of his generation, many of the episodes in Gihwa's career had to do with his dealings with the epochal events that occurred at this time.
Gihwa was the inheritor of a Seon tradition whose practices were derived mainly from the Chinese Linji (Korean Imje臨濟) school, which he received through his teacher Muhak (Chach'o 無學自超 1327-1405) by way of Muhak's famous mentor Hyegeun (Naong, 慧勤懶翁; 1320-1376), both of whom traveled to Yuan China to receive direct instruction from Chinese Linji masters.

 What is Gong-An Seon ?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
According to the tradition of Seon (Japanese Zen) Buddhism, the Gong-An is a question conferred on a student (practitioner) by a Seon Master who has already attained enlightenment.
And when the teacher (Seon Master) has great sympathy with his student's answer to his Gong-An, just like the matching of the two halves of an official seal, then and only then the teacher would approve of his disciple's enlightenment.
The Seon practice is, of course, one of many practices of Buddhism, and especially " the Gong-An Seon " lays strong emphasis on the enlightenment attained through practice of the Gong-An.

 SEON - THE BUDDHISM OF KOREA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Cha'an is the Chinese form of the Sanskrit word "Dhyana" (Jhana in Pali), which is a state of meditative absorption.
Although not the first form of Buddhism to reach Korea, it was this school of Buddhism which was eventually to become the main Buddhist tradition in Korea where it became known as Seon, from where it later spread to Japan where it was known as Zen.
Cha'an, the roots of which are found in the Sattipathhana Sutta, the most important sermon on meditation preached by the Buddha himself, emphasised realisation by personal effort rather than reliance on study of the scriptures which are externally based and related more to the experiences of others.
