108 Prostrations

The practice of Buddhism is by lowering myself. Bowing is to take refuge in The Three Jewels (the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sanga), respect for others, and keep a humble mind in Buddhism. 108 defilements represent the worldly sufferings. One bow purifies one defilement

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. Balwoogongyang has symbolic meaning representative of Buddhism from Sakyamuni Buddha period to present. You can learn the wisdom of nonpossession.

Cham-Seon ( Seon meditation )

Seon meditation is to cut off all thoughts. Through Cham-Seon, you can learn mindfulness and concentration. Cham-Seon is the important method of Korean Buddhist practice. We hope you look for your true nature with concentration and observation through learning the basic of Cham-Seon at the head temple of Seon sect, Bongeunsa.
