Anna, 30, Female, U.S.A
One of the best experiences I have had in South Korea. The YongJooSa TempleStay was an excellent introduction to some of the practices and fundamental tenets of Buddhism. The experience engaged all of the 5senses - listening to the sound of the morning bell, smelling the incense, seeing the group members rise and full in unison to bow, testing each bite of food at the meal in silence and feeling the smooth texture of the wooden beads as we made the rosary. The exercises and activities create heightened sense of self-awareness and build the ability to tours on the present. A great learning and spiritual experience.

I really enjoyed the program. I am Thankful for the wonderful impression you gave me for Buddhism and I hope that you will keep touching people's hearts.
Ilse, 22, Female, Netherland
It was a really great program. I've learn so much more about Buddhism. The morning activity(morning chanting ceremony) was for me the most impressive. It really was hard, but so different then I even did before. Especially meditation and conversation with sunim.
Judith, 21, Female, Netherland
Great respect for the things the nuns shared with us. It made me feel very welcome in my first encounter with Buddhist culture. I think Buddhism is a good foundation for living a happy and thankful life. Thank you for taking me out of the daily hectic life and letting me enjoy the silence.

You can use facebook page for your epilogue.
We came to this place to learn more about buddhism and Korea culture.
This temple stay gave me a very good impression on how people live in this place.
I met very friendly people.  I appreciated the manner how people behave to each another.
I also liked the silence early in the morning.  I heard the birds awaking.  This trekking was very beautiful.  I saw birds and trees
we do not have in Switzerland
To seat long times on the floor is quite hard.
But this w as all good practice.   It was good having been here.
I was impressed by the friendlyness of the monk.

It was good and interesting, somehow I thought about a lot of stuffs during this YongJooSa Temple stay. This templestay inspired me a bit, for things, decisions that I have to deal shortly.
Matthew, 21, male, U.S.A
This trip made me realize all of the things. I waste and take for granted. Additionally this stay helped me tone out all of the busy activities that occur in my life.
Nord, 21, female, Germany
According to myself, the templestay was a great experience, to understand Korean culture and Buddhism better. I liked being here, however I think this is an experience you only make once in your life.
Sina, 22, female, Germany
I really enjoyed the last two days. I was able to experience many new things. Now I have a better understanding of Buddhism and I am eager to apply the knowledge that I gained in my everyday life.
Jonas, 24, male, Germany
I enjoyed the templestay, it was an interesting but also challenging experience. I liked most the hike HwaSan(mountain around of YongJooSa) and the praying in the morning, as one could experience the life of a Buddhist monk. The sharing of food was a valuable lesson as well and the breakfast was great. Thanks.
Pamera, 23, Female, Mexico
I like the experience, Food was good, even because I don't like a lot Korean food, but this was good for me.
Pascaline, 20, female, Frence

Kimanh, 21, Femail, U.S.A
I'm came to this temple stay on behalf of my parents who are Buddhists(in America) and as escape away from our fast paced society. Being here and immersing myself in a temple stay in Korea in comparison to the one I've visted in america was extremely different. My ethnicity is Vietnamese so it was refreshing take on temple life in comparison to the Vietnamese temple. I gained so much insight about myself, my relationships, and how were all interconnected. I fell like I've been given a gentle slap on the cheek I am in control of my own happiness and I Will not let stress of school, family work society and homes me hold me down. Loved it.
Nea, 22, Femail, Filand
All the virtue, meditations, bows made me realize I have been living too busy life, been too hard on myself and not given time for myself just to relax and take a deep breath. I didn't even realize how much I needed to experience this temple stay until I came here.
Katinka, 23, Femail, Norway
It has been a wonderful time, I think one of the best things was to meet new people and that we all went to templestay with the goal to relax, learn and be happy. I found everybody very supporting, and so nice that there always was helping and explaining if I didn't understand something.
Thomas, 25, mail, Norway
I had a great time here during the templestay. It was very interesting to experience the daily life of buddhist monks. It is a very beautiful temple and spending time ere was really relaxing. Also a great chance to meet a lot of nice people.
Katherine, 27, Femail, Canada
I enjoyed many new experience...3am chanting ceremony, tea ceremony, direct communication with sunim. Gave me a good perspective of how monks live, think as well as teaching from Buddhism that anyone can follow.

Kevin Horan, male, 22s, U.S.A
I am happy I did this templestay, it not only allowed me a great opportunity to see the beautiful temple and landscape in the fall, but let me explore monastic practices and Korean Buddhism more. I have studied all different kinds of Buddhism except Korean, but I find it unique and fascinating. I would have liked to have had more interesting experiences or experience more of the monks activities rather than many of the group activities, however these group activities were beneficial.
Theresa Lindnor, female, 23s, Germany
I had a great and relaxing time at the temple. It was special to experience Buddhist life so closely. Everybody was more than welcoming and friendly. Thank you so much.
Tiphaine Tellier,female, 20s, France
It was a very pleasant and relaxing experience. Sharing their program with people I didn't know helped me open up more easily and realize the importance of relationships with others. It was a peaceful stay that noted both my body and mind. Thank you.
