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.
Lotus symbolizes Buddhism. Since long ago, lanterns and incense have been regarded highly as valuable offerings to the Buddha. Making your own lantern with sincere heart as well as lighting it for the Buddha will be virtue of wisdom. And we make lotus lanterns for happiness of our families and neighbors.
Seon meditation is to cut off all thoughts. Through Cham-Seon, you can learn mindfulness and concentration. Cham-Seon is the important method of Korean Buddhist practice. We hope you look for your true nature with concentration and observation through learning the basic of Cham-Seon at the head temple of Seon sect, Bongeunsa.
It is one of the meditations to practice of mindfulness and concentration through brewing and drinking tea. Tea and meditation are the same that is why it is said Da-Seon-il-mil. When you drink tea, your five senses work at the same time. Your eyes see the color, ears hear the sound of water, nose smells the fragrance, the tongue tastes the flavor of the tea and your hands feel the warmth of the cup.
