In the history of Silla, “Zai Yi” (disasters and anomalies) covers various types such as astronomy, geology, meteorology, hydrology, etc. “Zai Yi” shows the characteristics of geographic wideness, type diversity, persistence, and mass occurrence. “Zai Yi” affected the political society of Silla to varying degrees. The rulers of Silla adopted a series of political and economic response measures to “Zai Yi”, and built a disaster response system for pre- “Zai Yi” defense, “Zai Yi” relief, and post- “Zai Yi” recovery. Silla’s “Zai Yi” view was not only deeply influenced by China’s “theory of interaction between heaven and man” and “the theory of Yin and Yang and five elements”, it was also influenced by primitive beliefs from the northern system or the indigenous beliefs inherent in Silla, presenting a complete and systematic view of “Zai Yi” with Silla features.
