Yunju Temple is well known for its largest storage of stone scriptures in the world. It is also a great place to calm your soul and have your heart taking a break by attending its one-day Chan Meditation event, which is held several times a year. This year two “One-day Chan Meditation” events have been held in Yunju Temple – one on May 26 and the other on July 01.
In the course of one-day Chan meditation ( or popularly known as “being a monk for a day”), people put on monk clothes and act in meditation under the guidance of a master. A few hours’ meditation allows you to forget temporarily your earthly desires and your worries. Many who experienced “One-day Chan Meditation” have learned and understood a lot in light of the meaning of life, hencing generating more love for our family member and people as a whole.
More than meditation, this one day activity gives people more insight knowledge about Buddhism. People are taught not just to pray superficially in form, but think and act accoding to the Buddhist disciplines – love for poeple, help people and be kind to people.
