What is a Temple Stay?

View and Read More

Temple stays are a unique opportunity for foreign tourists to live in a Buddhist temple and learn about and experience Korean Buddhist culture firsthand. Most temples are located deep in the mountains, so visitors can also fully enjoy the beauty of nature. Through spiritual training such as Seon (Zen) meditation and Buddhist rites, guests achieve the kind of peace of mind that is so needed in the modern world. A temple stay is an enriching experience that recharges the soul and spirit, eases stress, and teaches visitors about traditional Korean Buddhist culture.

The basic program at a temple includes Buddhist rites, Seon meditation, tea ceremonies, and Balwoo-gongyang (Buddhist meal with traditional wooden bowls). There are many other activities to participate in, such as lotus lantern making, impression making with ink and paper, and Buddhist beads threading.
