Beom-eum college, the affiliate of Yeongsanjae Preservation Association, is founded on the basis of Okcheonbeom-eumhoe (Okcheonbeom-eum Association). Okcheonbeom-eumhoe was founded in 1969 by An Deok-am, Kim Unpa, Lee Manbong, Park Songam and Jang Byeok-eung. They realized the strong necessity to educate the younger generations and to preserve the Buddhist ceremonies. It was open to any monks regardless of their Buddhism sectors and had a course of three months. Based on its more than 30 years of tradition, Beom-eum college was founded as a three year college in 1994 by Park Songam and other monks who honored the idea of Lee Wolha, the great master of Pompae, and wished to teach the juniors at more professional and systematic institute. In old days before 1968 Pompae was taught during the summer or winter seclusive training sessions. The college course is newly established. Originally Pompae was taught for 15 years to master all of Sangjugwon-gong course, Gakbae, Yeongsan, Anchaebi and Jitsori for three years each respectively. Presently these courses are available mainly at the college.
