It's the weekend and this class has certainly earned it. After our first full week of teaching we are off to explore the culture.We started this morning by loading up the bus and heading to Lou Han Tang, which is a temple that was built in 1995. The temple celebrates the begging of Buddha and the disciples who led thousands of people to the Buddha. These men worked hard to make roads for others and later became Buddhas in their sense of the Buddha. After the completion, this became known as the Rohan temple which is where we visited today. Elaborate cultural art decorates every inch of these temples, from the stairways, to the railings, and to the status of the disciples. I was fortunate enough to go into the Arhat temple. Arhat were men who gave up all of their worldly possessions in order to achieve nirvana. Here I prayed for the protection of my ancestors. Then we used a technique that involves counting your age in order to find your Arhat which links to your fortune. At the end of the day we left to KTV to sing karaoke! We had an additional surprise as it was Dr. Paik's birthday! We stayed for a few hours and sang the night away!
