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.

Da-Seon(Tea Ceremony)

It is one of the meditations to practice of mindfulness and concentration through brewing and drinking tea. Tea and meditation are the same that is why it is said Da-Seon-il-mil. When you drink tea, your five senses work at the same time. Your eyes see the color, ears hear the sound of water, nose smells the fragrance, the tongue tastes the flavor of the tea and your hands feel the warmth of the cup.

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.
