Lunch will be served with rice as the feature dish.

We are delighted to invite you and your family and friends to this special occasion to celebrate Sotaesan’s great enlightenment.

The program will include meditation, chanting, Dharma talk, and Prime Master’s Dharma message.

We will have delicious Korean lunch.

We look forward to seeing you on this special day.

On April 28, 1916, in the first light of dawn,
Soatesan was enlightened to the Truth of the Universe.
After twenty years of sincere ascetic practice,
the light of Truth shone at last in his spirit.
Won-Buddhism was born with his great awakening,
and we celebrate this day as our spiritual birthday.

A Spiritual New Year Celebration

On January 1st 2016 we will have a special sunrise dharma service at Avoca Beach. Wake up early and join us between 4.30 - 5am near the lifeguard tower, as we welcome the new year with calm and hopeful minds. We will sit in meditation, watch the sun rise and move our bodies in gentle yoga stretches.

After our time on the beach we will return to Won Meditation Centre for Dharma Service at 8am when Head Dharma Master Kyongsan's New Year message will be read.
If you can't make it to sunrise meditation, please join us in the temple at 8am.

After that, let's eat traditional tteokguk - rice cake soup together.
"The white tteok signifying purity and cleanliness would be eaten as a ritual to start off the New Year for good fortune."

What better way to begin the new year?

Please realize your inner bodhisattva and join our team!
We have raised $500 so far. :)

Informed by our practice of Won Buddhism, we feel that the Syrian refugees and all people around the world are not strangers, but our brothers and sisters as one great family of humanity.

While we have been sending them our thoughts and prayers, we hope that through this fundraising page we can help just one family, materially.

The cost of one Shelterbox is around $1000. It can provide a family with children with shelter, heat, cooking equipment, a water filter, mosquito nets, children's games and more.

Dharma Authentication Ritual & Ceremony
August 15th - 21st, 6pm

21st August is the special holiday day for commemorating and celebrating the founding spirit of Won Buddhism as demonstrated by the nine disciples of Sotesan, who secured the legitimacy of the new Order from the realm of truth when they left their fingerprints on a sheet of white paper as a sign of acceptance of the injunction "Sacrifice without regret", which symbolized their infinite vow to create a peaceful and harmonious world, by committing to mind practice and devotion to public service.

For 7 days before that time our temple and homes shall be cleaned well, with a warm and calm spirit and one's body and mind purified.
At 6pm each evening, from August 15th - 21st, the meditation hall will be open to the public for prayer, meditation and chanting. Children are welcome to come along and join in the service, but service will be kept as a quiet time.
The week will culminate in the main ceremony on the 21st. All are welcome to attend on any of these evenings, but everyone is especially encouraged to attend on the 21st.

Here at the Won Meditation Center, with the help of the Sydney Won Temple Minister and his wife, we planted baby trees, re-planted saplings (including tea, Avocado and mango plants!) and cleaned out weeded areas to make way for a new herb patch. The sun was shining in this beautiful garden and we all felt happy and grateful to work outside together after a tasty lunch.
