Experience of Korean Traditional Culture

This is a program to experience of various (Korean) traditional culture linked with historical characteristics of Buddhist temple. You can learn many traditional culture such as Lotus Flower Lantern Making, Ingyeong ( Wood Block Printing from the Tripitaka Koreana ), Making Temple food and so on by yourself.


A day of the temple begins with Yebool. Yebool is a ceremony that we pay respect to the Sakyamuni Buddha, Bodhisattvas and all his diciples. It provides a chance for self-reflection of practice. In the Buddhist chanting, it states that Buddhists take refuge in Buddha, Buddha’s teachings and Shangha (the community of Buddhist monks and nuns), and wish to be Buddah through constant practice. While you are listening to Buddhist chanting, you will feel calm and have a peace of mind.
