This is a rubbed copy of the inscription made on the bell-shaped stupa containing the sariras of Monk Naong at Silleuksa Temple in Yeoju. Naong was a teacher of King Gongmin of the Goryeo Dynasty. He passed away at the temple in 1376 (the 2nd year of King U’s reign), and his tomb was built there along with the bell-shaped stupa. The contents of the inscription were composed by Yi Saek (pen-name: Mogeun), a renowned civil official and scholar of the late Goryeo Period.
