CHONDOGYO ORGANIZATION AND CANONICAL WRITINGS


 The Chondogyo Central Church Headquarters functions as the representative organ of Chondogyo. Cheondo-gyo operates under the democratic principle of 'rule by majority?unified under a centralized governing body. Central Church Headquarters is composed of two main branches. The one pertaining mainly to administrative affairs contains the Church Head Office(Church Executive Office or Gyoryeongsa, ), the Office of Religion(Hyeongisa, Ѧ), the Office of Religious Affairs(Jongmuweon, ), the religious congress(Jongeuiweon, ) and the Office of the Superintendent(Gamsaweon, ). The second branch is devoted to spiritual affairs and involves the general congregation, referred to as the Spiritual Clan Assem-bly(Yeonweonhoe, ).
 The highest deliberative body in Central Church Headquarters meets once every three years as the National Church Congress(). At this meeting, repre-sentatives of the church(the church head, church congress representatives, and the central superintendent) are selected, and department heads named by the church leader formally appointed. Subsidiary offices of Central Church Headquarters, such as the regional parishes and missionary offices entrusted with edification of church members and spreading the work of the church, operate mainly under the direction of the parish head. On Serving Day(Siil, or Sunday), members of each parish gather at the church assembly for the regularly scheduled Serviec Day Meeting. In addition, places for the instruction and training of church members exist here and there throughout the country. The Spiritual Clan Assembly is comprised of the Dojeong (Main Chogregation, Գ) and the Dohun(Students of the Way, Գ). Heading these two parts of the congregation are the Teacher of Religious Doctrine(, Jongbeopsa) and the Proclaimer of the Way(Գ, Seondosa), each of whom are appointed at the meeting of the National Church Congress.
 Branch organizations of the church include the Youth Society(Ҵ), Women's Society(), Disciple of the Way Center(), and the Donghak National Unification Society(). The publishing branch of the church(, Siningansa, or New Humanity Publishing) produces the monthly New Humanity and Chondogyo Monthly(Գ, Chondogyo Weolbo). Operating independently from Central Church Headquarters is the Chondogyo Maintenance Branch (Գӥ) entrusted with church fund raising.
 In Gyeongju is the Yongdam Holy Site (, Yongdamseongji) where Chondogyo has its beginnings, and which is the place of the Great Master Su-un Choe Je-u's birth. At various sites throughout the country are historical markers of the Donghak Revolution.
 The canonical writings of Chondogyo are Donghak Scripture(, Donggyeongdaejeon) and the Songs of Yongdam(, Yongdamyusa), both written by Great Master Su-un; the Sermons of Master Haeweol (, Haeweolsinsabeopseol) by the second supreme leader of Chondogyo, Haeweol Choe Si-hyeong; and the Sermons of Revered Teacher Euiam(, Euiamseongsabeopseol) by the third supreme leader of Chondogyo, Euiam Son Byeon-heui.
