ABOUT YONGJOOSA


 


Yongjoosa was built in 1790 by the 22nd ruler of the Joseon Dynasty, King Jeongjo (1752-1800), in honor of his late father, Prince Sadosaeja (1735-1762). This place was the former site of the temple Galyangsa, built in 854 C.E. by the Shilla King Munseong. King Jeongjo had moved his murdered father’s tomb from its previous location in Yangjoo, Gyeonggi Province to Hwasan. He then built a temple to protect the royal tomb, and to pray for the repose of his father’s soul. The night before the opening ceremony, the King dreamed of a dragon grasping a Cintamani jewel (magic pearl) in its mouth, ascending to heaven, and so he named the temple Yongjoosa (Dragon Jewel Temple). Therefore, Yongjoosa is known as “The original temple of filial piety”, where Buddha nature and filial piety go hand in hand. 


 


In the Main Buddha Hall there is a Thangka (painting behind the Buddha) attributed to the artist Hongdo Kim (1706--?). The giant bell in the Yongjoosa bell tower is said to have been cast in the beginning of the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392 C.E.). But more than anything, if you mention Yongjoosa, the tablet containing the “Sutra of Filial Piety to One’s Parents” comes to mind, which was created by King Jeongjo in 1796 to repay his parents’ kindness. At Yongjoosa there is a museum praising King Jeongjo’s filial piety, and the sutra tablet itself is on display, as well as other cultural treasures related to the king.


 


What is TempleStay?


 


Templestay is a unique cultural program which lets you experience the life of Buddhist practitioners which preserve the 1,700-year-old history of Korean Buddhism, at traditional temples.


 


The whole world slumbers in the dark hours before dawn, but as the majestic temple bell tolls, the universe starts to be awake, and the day begins in the temple, as it has for the last 1700 years.


 


Templestay is a cultural experience program that lets you get a taste for the incredible cultural heritage which has blossomed during the five thousand years of Korean history, as well as experience the cultural consciousness transmitted throughout Korean Buddhist history. 


 


It’s a time to search for your True Self and become one with your Original Nature.


 


We hope that Templestay helps you to clear your mind so that you can have a turning point when you return to your ordinary life having through a wide experience of the world.
