From the first step admitting self as it is.

ALL is Well. Everything will be okay.

Praising ourselves for having patiently walked through the difficult path of life,

108 Prostrations

The practice in Buddhism is constantly lowering oneself. Prostration is one of the method of Buddhist practice to take refuge in The Three Jewels (the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sanga), to respect for others, and to keep a humble mind in Buddhism. By lowering one's body, being humble towards world and oneself, and uniting into one with altogether, 108 times of prostration will be an another way to find oneself. The number 108 represents all the defilements; the worldly sufferings. Whenever we prostrate, we put down each of defilements, reflecting on ourselves. 108 prostrations time is the time to learn to lower ourselves, and also fulfill our mind with freshness.

Absorbing the forest

As we walk in the forest, pretend that we're absorbing the nature around us. The greens, the fresh air, the fresh sounds, the fresh water... Everything around us as we walk are fresh and we're also the part of it. All the stress, all the gloomyness in our minds will wash away the the freshness. Let's breathe with the nature, let's absorb the forest.

Orientation

Learn the temple etiquettes and concept of Buddhism, and also the short history of Beopjusa Temple.

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.

Yebul (Buddhist Ceremony)

Twice a day at Korean temples, during the early morning and evening, people pay their respects and make offerings to Buddha through a special ceremony called Yebul. The ceremony begins with the playing of the four Buddhist instruments: the Dharma drum, temple bell, wooden fish, and cloud-shaped gong.
