Monastic meal

In Korean monastries, you put rice and side dishes into a bowl or a plate and eat. You can eat as much as you want, you can even go second and thrid round or more, but you must finish everything on your plate. Once you're done eating, wash your own dishes. For breakfast, we eat in silence, reflecting on ourselves, with monks.

Morning Ritual

A day of the temple begins with Yebool. Yebool is a ritual 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

Tea & talk session with monk

Ask questions and talk with monk over tea.

Temple tour

emple 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.

Ulyeok (Communal Work)

Ulyeok means working together. It is also called Unyeok which means gathering individual power like cloud. In secular world, labor means a part of our life but especially in Seon sect., Ulyeok has another meaning, that is one of the important practice in the Buddhist temple. There is a famous story about Ven. Baekjang, who was a Buddhist monk in Tang Dynasty, China. Despite his age 90, he did Ulyeok everyday. One day, his disciple worried his teacher’s health. So he hid his teacher’s plow. And then Ven. Baekjang didn’t have a meal that day. His disciple asked him the reason why he did not eat whole day. Then, Ven. Baekjang said, “A day without work, a day without food” This story refers that practice does not separate from our daily life.

Things to bring

Since our rooms have minimal amenities, you'd need to bring your own toileteries and towels. Also, remember to bring personal water bottles, extra clothes, and confortable shoes. Since you're required to cover your feet in Buddha halls, you should bring at least a pair of socks.
