Leather Suitcase Master Sheng Yen Used during Solitary Retreat

In 1961, Master Sheng Yen went to Chaoyuan Monastery in Kaohsiung County to practice repentance prostration and self-confinement. Besides several boxes of books, this suitcase was the only thing he carried, which contained only simple necessities.

Later, thanks to various favorable conditions, a ritual to seal the retreat quarters was held on September 30, 1963, and he formally entered solitary retreat. In 1968, when he finished the retreat and left the monastery, this suitcase was also the only thing he carried.
