Buseoksa Temple was built in 676, when King Munmu (661~681) ruled the Silla Kingdom (57 B.C. ~ A.D. 935), by the founder Uisang.  Buseoksa is also known as the temple of the floating stone. (Hangul: 부석사, Hanja: 浮石寺)

Guinsa, (Temple of Salvation and Kindness) was built in 1945. It is located in Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea. It is the headquarters of the Cheontae school of Korean Buddhism. Temple Stay English version of the Temple Stay website


The Cheontae Order represents a new Buddhist movement that promotes patriotism, Buddhism in daily life, and Buddhist teachings for the common men.



Donghwasa’s Templestay Program

Donghwasa runs a Templestay program called: Using Meditation in the Search for My True Self. Those who can unload their mind’s heavy baggage, even for a moment, can realize their dream of a happy life. Lie down and meditate watching the stars in the nighttime sky. Completely find your True Self again, this True Self you thought you had lost.
