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 including the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sanga. It is also a way to show respect for other and to maintain humble mind in daily life. 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 as if we're absorbing the nature around us. The greens, air, water, birds and earth. Appreciate everything the nature so kindly allowed us to enjoy and don't forget that we're also part of it. Leave all the stress, gloominess and attachment behind.. Let's breathe with the nature; let's absorb the forest.

Orientation

Learn about basic concepts in Korean Buddhism and the temple etiquettes. We will also briefly go over the program schedule.
