Korean history repeats the conflicts and co-existence of particularity and universality or locality and globality.

Korea has asted as a periphery because of its geographical and cultural conditions, and served as a recipient and transmitter of a larger civilization within

the cross-cultural space of East Asia. During this process, Buddhism with global universality generates a third derivative culture and forms a new glocal tradition,

interacting with the particular locality of Korea. Since the introduction of Buddhism, Korea has enjoyed opportunities to expand its civilization and build a distinctive

glocality through the intersections of its unique cultural prototype and imported elements.
