  • Product Description
  • Press Release
  • A Temple Stay is a short sojourn at a temple where one goes to follow monastic rules of life.

    For this reason, many seek out temples for the explicit purpose of having a rest. It is for this reason that a temple

    stay can be compared to a nap: a short break from one's daily routine provides the energy necessary to carry on

    with one's busy existence. The various programs offered around the country all possess, to some degree, the

    essense of Korean Buddhism. This book uses simple terms to explain the meaning of some of the rituals that

    one may encounter at a temple stay and gives insight into the history, philosophy and practices of Korean Buddhism. Are you ready to transcend the boundaries of religion and depart for a temple stay, the storehouse

    of Korean Buddhist culture? Open your mind to the information contained in this book.
