Templestay Introduction

GuinsaGuinsa Temple, located on Mt. Sobaeksan, is the main temple of Korean Buddhist Cheontae Order. The temple serves as a religious center for two million Cheontae Buddhists who follow the Grand Patriarch Sangwol-Wongak. In addition, among the peaks magnificently lined up around Gukmangbong Peak within Sobaeksan Mountains, the temple area lies at the foot of Yeonhwaji Peak (Lotus Flower Area). The lotus-leaf shape of the area has given it its current name, Yeonhwaji. The mysterious charm of the mountains has led to its reputation as a holy place of Mahayana Buddhism. The Grand Patriarch Sangwol-Wongak established the temple in Yeonhwaji.

The mysterious charm of the mountains in 1945 as part of his vow to revive Buddhism, to protect the nation, and to save all beings. Guinsa Temple began when he designated it, Guinsa(Salvation and Kindness Temple), a place to save all sentient beings. At this time, the Grand Patriarch built a tiny thatched hut with intertwined arrowroot vines. After a period of austere practice, he achieved a complete awakening. Having opened the door to the resplendent Dharma, his refined wisdom and integrity led him to accept numerous disciples. At present, Guinsa Temple, the head temple of Korean Buddhist Cheontae Order, had stretched itself as the biggest merciful and miraculous temple in Korea. It is also known to people as the miraculous and mystic praying retreat, and is even more famous because everyones wishes come true well here.
