A while ago, I went to Beomeosa for a temple stay. It was… interesting. Their English translator recently left and the monks didn’t speak any English. So what happened?

A monk chastised me for pronouncing Beomeosa incorrectly, I woke up at 3am to meditate, I bowed 108 times, made a cool necklace (that smells like cedar chips) from all the bowing, and saw a painting of naked ladies with huge knockers trying to “tempt” Buddha. From that last thing, I learned that women are the “greatest temptation” for men.

Glad I spent the night in a temple. Don’t think I need to do it twice.
