Volume 10: 文化 Korean Buddhist Culture: Accounts Of A Pilgrimage, Monuments, And Eminent Monks

BySem VermeerschRoderick Whitfiled

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This volume brings together a number of texts that deal with the cultural aspects of Korean Buddhism. Although Buddhism is usually associated with its meditative practice or its doctrinal interpretation, in fact, as a living tradition it always had to find ways of dealing with the world. Monasteries function not only as places where monks study and practice in peace, they are also a focal point for the lay believers, who turn to monasteries for rituals, to make donations, to seek spiritual advice, or simply – as for most people who visit Korean temples these days – to see the beautiful cultural treasures or savor the unique temple food.
