Frequently Asked Questions
Won-Buddhism was founded in 1916 in Korea, when Grand Master
Sotaesan achieved his great enlightenment. Conceived as a contemporary
form of Buddhism, Won-Buddhism incorporates essential principles
of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism. In our Temple, we practice
different forms of meditation such as moving, chanting, sitting,
and reflection on daily life, learning to cultivate "True
Spirit, Wisdom, and Mindful Choice in Action".
Information on meditation days and times can be found on our
ongoing programs page.
Individuals are also welcome to come during daylights hours for
their own quiet time or meditation (when there are no temple programs
We only ask you to respect the space by removing your shoes and
wear clean socks or have clean barefeet).
You may want to wear loose clothing for stretching and breathing
exercises during meditation sessions.
You can find directions to the Temple HERE.
