Balwoogongyang (monastic meal )

Balwoo are bowls containing a moderate amount of rice and vegetables. Balwoogongyang is a traditional way of eating a meal for Buddhist monks and nuns. It is not only the manner of eating but one of the processes of practice. Therefore it is also called Beop-gongyang. Balwoogongyang involves the spirit of Equality, Cleanliness, and Thrift because everybody shares the same food equally, cooked in a clean environment and there is no waste.

Temple tour

Temple tour is not only visiting the Buddhist temple but experiencing Korean Buddhism and culture. Korean Buddhist temples have been the bedrock on which brilliant Korean culture has been blooming over the past 1700 years since Buddhism was first introduced to Korea. Various Buddhist cultural properties including the structure, architecture, sculpture, art, craft, Buddhist painting and Dancheong (temple paintwork) contain the teachings of the Buddha.


A day of the temple begins with Yebool. Yebool is a ceremony that we pay respect to the Sakyamuni Buddha, Bodhisattvas and all his diciples. It affords a chance for self-reflection of practice. In the Buddhist chanting, it contains that Buddhists take refuge in the Buddha, Buddha’s teachings and Shangha (the community of Buddhist monks and nuns), and wish to be a buddha through practice constantly. While you are listening to Buddhist chanting, you will feel calm and purified mind
