Bulsung Temple Stay
27/09/08 Our friend Monk Hong Dae Bong president of Anyang Buddhist art Gallery invited us to visit and stay the night at his temple up on Gwanak Mountain; the mountain between Seoul and Anyang. It was about a two-hour hike from the bottom of the mountain. Once we arrived we were treated with tasty vegetarian food grown from their own garden, then a tea ceremony followed by Monk Hong playing the bamboo flute. Hong also showed us a book of traditional Buddhist art. In the afternoon we climbed to many lookouts on the mountain, we had beautiful views of the cities. At night we drank plum wine while Hong played us his favourite music from around the world.
