Owning to the expansion of material civilization, the erosion of traditional values and ideological conflict, the present generation suffers oneself and others. Other than unilateral teaching and blind faith, Korean Buddhism sets high values on enlightenment by self-discipline. We guide people to find their own peace of mind by the teaching of Buddha and the wisdom for harmonization with different individuals. We believe individual’s spiritual growth leads to the contribution of society and also the world peace. We prostrate before the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha and pray that the entire universe be radiant with the peaceful light of Buddha’s wisdom.

New Temple Development

We have just finished the roof tiling, the ceiling, and the walls of our new main Dharma hall. If you are curious about our next step, please go to "new temple" on the menu to find out more.

The Journey of the Roof Tiles

The building of the roof tile, along with the development of the new temple, are made possible by the generous donation of all laypeople and with the effort of many others.
