(57) Ikuta (Chsen ysh-ki, p. 154) obviously assumes a typographical error (n = u) here and identifiespontchaa (poutchaa?) with poetsia (87), but then God and idol would be the same.... Ponjon (satyadevata), 'the most honoured of all Buddhas', 'the chief object of worship in a group'*, seems more probable here. Phonetically pons/ponsa (The original Master or Teacher, i.e. Sakyamuni) seems closer to pontchaa, but this term was (and is) hardly used in Korea.
*Cf. supra, n. 62.
